Researchers within the ?eld of lifestyles sciences depend more and more on info te- nology to extract and deal with appropriate wisdom. The advanced computational and knowledge administration wishes of lifestyles technological know-how learn make Grid applied sciences an enticing aid resolution. in spite of the fact that, many very important concerns needs to be addressed earlier than the lifestyles technological know-how Grid turns into normal. the first overseas existence technology Grid Workshop (LSGRID 2004) used to be held in Kanazawa Japan, might 31–June 1, 2004. This workshop occupied with lifestyles s- ence functions of grid platforms in particular for bionetwork examine and structures biology which require heterogeneous info integration from genome to phenome, mathematical modeling and simulation from molecular to inhabitants degrees, and high-performance computing together with parallel processing, detailed and grid computing. Fruitful discussions happened via 18 oral shows, together with a keynote deal with and ?ve invited talks, and sixteen poster and demonstration p- sentations within the ?elds of grid infrastructure for all times sciences, structures biology, colossal information processing, databases and knowledge grids, grid portals and pipelines for practical annotation, parallel and disbursed purposes, and existence technology grid initiatives. The workshop emphasised the sensible elements of grid techno- gies by way of enhancing grid-enabled data/information/knowledge sharing, high-performance computing, and collaborative initiatives. there has been contract one of the members that the development of grid applied sciences for all times technology examine calls for additional concerted activities and promoting of grid purposes. We for that reason concluded the workshop with the statement of LSGRID 2005.
