Monday, January 14th, 2008

IGT Offices, Maskit 4, 5th Floor, Hertzliya

14:00-14:15: OPENING - Avner & Guy

14:15-15:00: “GridGain – Java Grid Computing Made Simple”

Speaker: Nikita Ivanov, Founder GridGain Systems
Duration: 45minutes
Language: English

This presentation is intended to provide a high level overview on
GridGain– an open source Java grid computing framework. Presentation is
arranged to provide both the canonical overview of the software
framework and live coding demonstration underscoring powerful simplicity
of the GridGain. Presentation is split into approximately two equal
* In first part the formal introduction to GridGain and
computational grid computing is provided. Different types of

grid computing will be briefly discussed as well as the key
features that GridGain provides
* In the second part the live coding example will be shown
.demonstrating building and running the grid application from
scratch in front of the audience. This demonstration will
highlight one of the key advantages of using GridGain - simple
and transparent grid enabling of existing applications using
Java annotations.

15:00-15:10 Break

15:10-15:45 Grid Computing – The Simpsons, Shrek3 and helps Keep the Lights On

Speaker: Mike Duffy, Founder CEO of Axceleon

Duration: 35minutes
Language: English


I wanted to speak to how Grid Computing is used in 2 very interesting and important industries, the Hollywood Movie Business and The Power/Energy Area. Without the ability to build these and utilize large compute grids the movie industry would not be able to generate these large special effects movies like the Transformers, Shrek, Simpsons etc. The Electrical Generation companies around the world are looking to “grid computing” to not only save the money but also increase the reliability of their electrical grids across the world.
