The UK e-Science Architectural Task Force was established by the UK e-Science Core Programme to develop an architectural model for the UK's contributions to grid middleware. Our first meeting was held in Cambridge, on 19 October 2001. The output of that meeting, where we were trying to scope our task, is an early view which has evolved significantly. The present membership has, through a series of meetings developed a view on how the UK may participate actively in the emerging Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA) with its developing specification.

That view is still being formulated and is open to comment and advice from the e-Science and computing science community. Our current document is in draft form, and has been prepared for the meeting of TAG on 20 March 2002.

Readers are advised that all of the documents referenced are evolving, and that they should refer to latest versions where possible.

Talks are now available from the UK e-Science Road Map Meeting, 18 April 2002, Trades Union Congress Conference Centre, London.
