User Forum 2011: Call for participation opens

Following the success of the Technical Forum 2010 in Amsterdam, EGI has opened the call for participation in the 2011 User Forum to be held in Vilnius, Lithuania (11-15 April).

The User Forum will be organised by EGI.eu, Vilnius University and LITENET with the support of the EGI-InSPIRE and European Middleware Initiative (EMI) projects. The capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, is one of the most beautiful towns in Eastern Europe. It has always been a multinational, multilingual, and multicultural city with traces of Jewish, Karaite and Tartar cultures. Vilnius enjoys a well-developed infrastructure of services and entertainments and is home to a vibrant community of artists, headquartered in the so-called Republic of Uzupis.

The event will feature an exhibition area open for organisations active within the EGI community (projects, NGIs, companies) to present their work. In addition, end-users, application and tool developers, operations staff and others are encouraged to participate by submitting abstracts for:

  • Oral presentations

  • Posters

  • Demonstrations

  • Workshops

  • Stands for the exhibition area

EGI welcomes online submissions of extended abstracts (not full technical papers) that include a brief overview, a description of work, impact of work, and main conclusions. The website for extended abstract submission will be announced shortly.
