Webs, Grids and Knowledge Spaces: Programmes, Projects and Prospects
Hans-Georg Stork (European Commission, DG Information Society)
Abstract: Many believe that today s Web has not yet reached the full potential which globally distributed systems may achieve in terms of information access and use. Realizing this potential may indeed turn the Web into a vast knowledge and service space. We discuss some of the issues involved and present a number of activities initiated and supported by the European Commission that are likely to make significant contributions towards attaining this goal.
