Brief description Grid computing enables the creation of Cyberinfrastructure for e-Research applications. It is recognised as one of the top five emerging technologies that will have a major impact on the quality of science and society over the next 20 years. Several nations around the world including Australia have developed their own national Grids based on the notion of virtual organisations. These dispersed Grid initiatives have resulted in Grid islands without any support for peering arrangements between them. This limitation will not allow us to realise full potential of the Grid computing paradigm. This InterGrid project aims to revolutionise Grid computing by developing new technologies for peering of Grids.
