European Globus users to meet at the Community Forum

Building on the success of the first European Globus Community Forum (EGCF) in 2011, the Initiative for Globus in Europe (IGE) is hosting its second forum meeting on March 26, 2012 at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre in Garching near Munich, Germany. The event will be co-located with the European Grid Infrastructure Community Forum (EGICF 2012).

The EGCF annual event provides a unique opportunity for European Globus users to introduce and discuss their work, challenges, solutions and best practices within a community atmosphere. The event also gives participants the opportunity to provide feedback on Globus technologies, as well as present any Globus requirements they may have for their research. Co-organised with the US Globus team, the Forum allows your voice to be heard both within the European community as well as the Globus team in the United States.

What’s new at the Forum meeting in 2012:

  • Unique opportunity to present and discuss Globus requirements with IGE and the Globus US team - make sure your requirements are heard!

  • Keynote by Globus US project lead, with insider news from Globus US team leader on important upcoming Storage and Collaboration features (hear it here first!)

  • Hands-on workshops and Q&A led by Globus experts

  • Community stories by researchers using Globus

  • Constitution of the 2012 EGCF Council and election of its speaker

Admission is free, and registration for the event is now open. Please take also note of the Call for Participation.
