This livestream has concluded. The archive video will be posted here. Archives can take up to two weeks to be posted.

Session Abstract

Grid computing is an emerging application of high bandwidth networks. Its use in health care and research is apparent in some projects, such as BIRN and caBIG. The European Union has formed a HealthGrid organization, and a similar organization is being planned in the US. We will present an overview of the current status and emerging research areas in HealthGrids and will invite discussion about methods to increase the applicability of grids to health care.
