Access Grid (AG) is one of the most widely used technologies for collaborative computing in the scientific community. It has been installed at hundreds of academic institutions worldwide and has become a de facto standard for collaboration among the grid computing community. The AG toolkit has grown out of a long-term research effort out of Argonne National lab in the US. The goal of AG is not to provide yet another videoconferencing system, but to explore advanced collaboration environments that take advantage of current and emerging technologies. Its goal is to incorporate high resolution displays, sophisticated audio systems, high resolution video, and advanced visualization into a single seamless collaboration environment.

Research IT Support provides support for AccessGrid at both the desktop level and in facilities such as the WestGrid advanced collaboration room located in FIP337.
