Welcome to GridCafé, the place to explore grid computing in a simple and stimulating way.

    Feel free to come inside to learn all about what grid computing is and how it's helping physicists, biologists, geologists and more do their work every day.

    GridCafé was originally developed at CERN, the world's largest high-energy physics laboratory and a leader in grid development. If you'd like to get up to speed on the basics of grids, find out what makes them different to other types of computing, or discover how the technology is impacting science and society you've come to the right place!

    A little note: GridCafé is a part of our newly created e-ScienceCity, the place to learn all about e-science. However as we're still under construction you might notice we're missing a few links. For now, if you'd like to find full content about the people, questions and images behind grid computing please visit the original GridCafe site.
