  Description:
  The Community Scheduler Framework (CSF) provides comprehensive and standards-based metascheduling services for The Grid. Participants in this BoF session will be introduced to both the standards (OGSI-Agreement) and the technology behind CSF from members of The Globus Project and Platform Computing. Also, the developers of The Grid Portal Toolkit (GridPort) will discuss how CSF is figuring into their refactoring of their portal technology under OGSA. Finally, participants will be encouraged to share their thoughts on CSF, and how it might figure in their own Grid projects.
