This is our 400th issue of iSGTW (formerly SGTW)!

Science Grid this Week (SGTW) was founded way back in April 2005, at Fermilab, with the goal of working to inform the grid community and interested public about the people and projects involved in US grid computing and the science that relies on it. Just over a year and a half later, in November 2006, the publication went international, becoming iSGTW. The publication has also since broadened its coverage to include cloud computing, HPC, big data, and volunteer computing.

Today, iSGTW is based jointly at CERN and Indiana University, and it is funded by organizations in the US and Europe. In the US, it is funded through the National Science Foundation. In Europe, it is funded by the European Commission’s Information Society and Media Directorate-General, through the e-ScienceTalk project.

You can visit the iSGTW archive, here. And you still read SGTW stories on the old site, here.

You also might be interested in seeing iSGTW's top five most popular articles of all time. These are listed below:

  1. Research Report - Turning the microscope inwards: Studying scientific software ecosystems
  2. CERN lends a hand to the origin of life
  3. Virtual atom smasher in LHC@Home
  4. Accelerate physics with your own computer
  5. Museum brings prehistoric animals back to life

Finally, we would like to thank all of our dedicated readers who have stuck with us over the years, as well as all of those who have contributed to iSGTW. We hope you will continue to enjoy iSGTW long into the future.

In case you aren't already signed up, you can subsrcibe to our free weekly e-newsletter, here.
