Last week to submit papers to the EGI Community Forum

If you want to submit an abstract to the EGI Community Forum, this is the time to do it: submissions will close on Friday, 2nd December. The forum will be held in Munich (26-30 March 2012), in conjunction with the 2nd EMI Technical Conference and the European Globus Community Forum.

We welcome submissions of individual poster, presentation or demonstrations which will be reviewed by the programme committee and placed into the programme. Requests for community workshops, training activities and internal project meetings are welcomed and will be
accommodated subject to availability.

Submissions will be selected according to their applicability to the following five tracks:

  • Users and communities

  • Software services for users and communities

  • Middleware services

  • Operational services and infrastructure

  • Coordination and communication

The five tracks reflect the evolution of the infrastructure towards a sustainable layered model together with the advancements in the deployed middleware services which will offer a more flexible and versatile mechanism for meeting the needs of the increasingly diverse user community. The overall goal of the Community Forum and Technical Conference is to both increase and improve use of the infrastructure as well as to further enhance its middleware services.

A second stage reviewing process will be announced later which will lead to the publication of selected papers. Accepted peer-reviewed papers will be published in an open-access online journal.
