On the Wednesday morning of the Community Forum will be a new kind of session for the EGI community, Networking Sessions. They are designed to bring together people interested in a particular policy, technology or research question to discuss possible solutions or collaborations.
There are 5 different topics being discussed and we are going to be running a series of news items highlighting some of them. To start us off we have an interview with Claudio Prandoni, PREFORMA's Technical Director, who has organised the digital preservation session.
