EGI is looking for a city to host the 2011 Technical Forum

Update: The bidding process is over and Lyon will host the 2011 EGI Technical Forum

The European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) is now welcoming bids to host the 2011 Technical Forum. The forum will be the third EGI event, following the success of the 2010 Technical Forum in Amsterdam and the 2011 User Forum, scheduled for April in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Bids from EGI-InSPIRE partners or EGI Council members, based in attractive European cities with easy access to international flights and to the event venue, are welcome by 31 October 2010.

The 2011 Technical Forum will take place in Autumn and EGI expects around 400 attendees for the four to five days event.

The event will reflect on the progress during the first year of EGI to integrate different European e-Infrastructures and their resource providers to meet the needs of the international user communities. The forum will also aim to strengthen the links between NGIs and different technology providers across Europe.

The 2011 Technical Forum will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest European e-Infrastructures developments and to network with both resource providers and user communities.
