In this workshop experiences with Grid and Cloud Computing especially for applications from computational (Bio-) statistics and in combination with the R language are exchanged. People from other research areas are welcome, too.
Some speakers are invited to present their latest results and experiences. In an open round table example scenarios and requirements for Grid and Cloud Computing in computational (Bio-) statistics will be discussed.
