The PDCS'01 conference went very well. Our Keynote speaker, Professor Francine Berman, Processor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California San Diego, and Director of the San Diego Supercomputer Center and PACI at UCSD gave an excellent presentation. Her Keynote Address entitled

``Towards a Terascale-level National Infrastructure''

gave all of us a first hand view about the future of the Computational Grid during this decade, the Tera-Grid and perhaps the Peta-Grid.

During the Banquet we announced the Best Paper Awards. The five papers that received this award were:
