In 2000 the IST-Future and Emerging Technologies programme of the EC launched a pro-active initiative devoted to the Co-operation of Autonomous and Mobile Entities in Dynamic Environments . Commonly referred to as The Global Computing Initiative , the action aims at developing the fundamental techniques (models, frameworks, methods, algorithms) needed for constructing future IT systems that can accommodate large numbers of (mobile) autonomous computing entities. The ultimate goal is to provide a solid scientific foundation for the design, building and analysis of such systems.

The Workshop was the first joint event of the Global Computing Initiative, and was intended to provide a first view on the current progress in the project clusters and to outline future strategic lines of convergence of the research.
