    Advances in grid computing are stimulating the emergence of novel types of grids, such as accessible, manageable, interactive, and personal grids. More and more researchers are realizing emerging grids' potential to bridge the gap between grid technologies and users. This review of emerging grids sets out to develop a comprehensive classification of both traditional and emerging grid systems, with an aim to motivate further research and to help establish a solid foundation in this rapidly developing field.

    Grid technologies serving large distributed systems can help address many application areas' computing and storage needs. Consequently, the scientific and large-scale information processing communities are increasingly interested in studying large-scale distributed systems, such as Grid-based ones. Unfortunately, there are relatively few reports on best practices in teaching Grid topics that teachers can follow when they start building a new Grid-related course. Part 1 of this two-part department surveys reported efforts. Most of these efforts concern training activities organized by research teams for Grid user communities, but some discuss semester-long courses for advanced computer science or computer engineering students.
