The special issue of the Future Generation Computer Systems journal published the extended version of four papers selected from the 16 full papers presented at the International Symposium on Grid Computing, High-Performance and Distributed Applications GADA 2007. The main goal of the GADA series of conferences, was to bring together researchers, developers, professionals, and graduates working to advance research and development in the areas of grid computing and distributed systems and applications. Data access, management and analysis within Grid and distributed high performance environments constituted a main part of the conference to highlight the main goal. The first paper presented a comprehensive model for a fully parallelized On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) server. Another team of researchers showed the parallelization of two training algorithms of a multilayer perceptron artificial neural net in the second paper.
