Registration opens for the Lyon Technical Forum

Registration is now open for the Technical Forum (19‐23 September) in Lyon (http://go.egi.eu/tf11-registration). Early-bird registration fees apply until 5 August 2011.

A provisional timetable for the event it’s also now available.

The event will be hosted by EGI.eu, the Computing Centre of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics (CC-IN2P3) and France Grilles, the French National Grid Initiative.

Registration is available for one, two or three days, or the full week including the conference dinner. The conference fees include access to all co-located events running on the day or days specified in the registration.

The co-located events include:

  • French Grid Day (en français) – 19 September

  • GlobusEUROPE – 19 September

  • SIENA workshop – 21 September

  • OGF33 – 19-21 September

  • Grid2011 – 22-23 September

The conference dinner is included in the full week registration fee. This year the Technical Forum dinner will be held on Wednesday 21 September at the L'Abbaye de Collonges. The restaurant is owned by Paul Bocuse, a Lyon-based chef with several Michelin stars to his name. The plan is to reach the restaurant by boat, so you will have the opportunity to enjoy a tour on the Saone River before dinner. If you’re not registering for the full week, you are welcome to add a ticket to the conference dinner during the registration process. More about the conference dinner.

Another activity taking place during the week is a visit to the new 900m2 computer room at the CC-IN2P3. The CC-IN2P3 will organise several visits to this new facility which will offer an even more powerful service to its research community, fulfilling particularly ambitious international commitments regarding the LHC project.
