EGI.eu joins HealthGrid and IWSG-Life 2012 Conferences

EGI.eu is pleased to announce its participation in the HealthGrid 2012 Conference and the 4th International Workshop on Science Gateways for Life Sciences.

This joint event will take place at the Amsterdam Medical Centre in The Netherlands from 21 to 25 May 2012 (Monday to Friday).

The conferences present an opportunity for speakers to introduce and share novel ideas for the integration of grid, cloud and other e-infrastructures into the fields of biology, bioinformatics, biomedicine and healthcare, focusing on fundamental and practical aspects of middleware, technologies, applications and deployment issues.

For EGI.eu in particular, this represents an invaluable chance to interact directly with a vitally important sector of the community of researchers and developers that use grid computing resources. As a result, EGI.eu aims to use this opportunity to explore and gather new requirements for future development of our infrastructure and to better understand the needs of today’s users.

Calls for Papers are now open for HealthGrid 2012 and IWSG-Life2012. The conferences welcome contributions covering topics that range from grid technologies through to biomedical research and from portals to workflow and computational modelling.
