Workshop Registration and Participation

GRID 2000 is part of HiPC 2000, so there is *NO* separate registration
fee for GRID 2000. You just need to register for HiPC 2000
and that will cover participation in both GRID 2000 and HiPC 2000 meetings.
You will get two separate proceedings of GRID and HiPC, both published by 
Springer Verlag, Germany. However, please note that we will be having a
limited number of GRID 2000 proceedings and they are mostly reserved for
contributing paper authors. If there any copies left, they will be 
distributed to other primary participants. 

You can attend both meeting with one registration. GRID will be held
on Dec 17, 2000; And HiPC 2000 will be held during Dec 18-20, 2000.

For information related to registration, conference venue, travel,
and accomodation details, etc., please refer to web sites of:
