The first EGI Community Forum, to be held in Munich between 26-30 March 2012, was announced by EGI.eu’s direct Steven Newhouse at the closing plenary of the Lyon Technical Forum.
The event will be hosted by EGI.eu in partnership with the Munich Network Management, a consortium of four German research institutions.
“We’ll organise the first EGI Community Forum to showcase the role that e-infrastructures play in enabling innovation across the Europe,” says Newhouse. “We want the forum to highlight what the EGI community is doing in terms of services, technologies and tools to support scientists and their research.”
The organisers will invite developers of distributed computing applications & services and the research communities who make use of them to attend the event and find out more about the current state of the art.
The Community Forum will be co-located with the European Middleware Initiative (EMI) technical conference and other events.
More information will be available soon.
