VisAD and Globus worked together in the Environmental
Hydrology Work Bench.  Perhaps this could be extended to
include the AccessGrid under the NSF ITR.  All three
systems support collaboration, so there could be research
issues in how multiple collaboration systems can
interoperate.  Come to think of it, EVL's CavernSoft
also supports collaboration, so make that research into
how four collaboration systems can interoperate.
