Desktop Grids in a Clouded World
In today's world of clouds, we tend to forget, that there is a successfull category of distributed infrastructure that is wideley used in science and industry. These are desktop grids. Both the largest Grids for science and in industry are Desktop Grids. This presentation provides an overview of Desktop Grids and their place in the infrastructure world.

Porting applications to the Grid using the EDGeS Application Development Methodology
This part introduces the EDGeS Application Development Methodology. So far about 20 applications from fields of bio-science, chemistry, physics, engineering, e-market, etc. have been ported to EDGeS. Case studies of tools that make the application development easier and examples for applications that have been ported to EDGeS using the EADM are presented.
