At present, the Grid community and the Programming Language Theory community have little interaction between them. Yet the Grid raises several issues that are potentially addressed by technologies current in the world of Programming Language Theory, and some that could likely be addressed by similar work in the future. This offers opportunities; the possibility of solutions to current Grid problems and the chance of testing applications of recent research in the field.

The "Grids and Applications of Language Theory" (GALT'2003) workshop aims to bring together members of these two communities, to discuss a variety of topics that may bring mutual benefit. Such topics might include:

The workshop will include presentations of language technologies and open issues in Grid research. In addition to speakers, panel and discussion sessions will give participants time to match solutions to problems. We will produce a report summarising the findings, and will hope to see useful alliances made to pursue further research.


A programme was prepared for the workshop.
