Rob Fatland is a program manager with Microsoft Research Connections. His work concerns the management, analysis, and visualization of complex geoscience data.

Steve Tuecke is lead architect of the Globus™ Alliance, responsible for the architecture and design of the Globus Toolkit® middleware and for the Grid and Web Services standards that underlie it. Since turning over management of the Distributed Systems Laboratory (DSL) in 2001, Tuecke has focused on Globus Toolkit architecture and design, Grid and Web Services standards, and corporate relationships. Tuecke graduated Summa Cum Laude from St. Olaf College in 1989, receiving a B.A. in Mathematics and Computer Science. In 2002 he received Technology Review magazine’s TR100 award, recognizing him as one of the world’s top 100 young innovators. In 2002 he also was named to Crain’s Chicago Business “Forty Under 40”, as one of the Chicago area’s “best and brightest”. In 2003 he was named (with Foster and Kesselman) by InfoWorld Magazine as one of its Top 10 Technology Innovators of 2003, as “the masterminds behind the technologies that are making the biggest splash and steering IT into the future.” He is a leader in the Grid and Web Services standards communities, including a former member of the Global Grid Forum Steering Group, lead author and co-chair of the Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) standard, and an author or participant of numerous other standards efforts including W3C WSDL (Web Services), GGF WS-Agreement (SLA negotiation), GGF Data Access and Integration, OASIS WSDM (service management), and IETF X.509 Proxy Certificates (security).
