The UK goes to Bavaria

Wed 21st March 2012

Once a year the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) brings together the researchers, and technical people, using the infrastructure to discuss, and share their experience. It is a great opportunity for the scientists actively using the system to have their say. The 2012 community forum is being held near Munich next week and the UK has many contributions from both GridPP and NGS.

The EGI Community Forum is one of the highlights of the European Grid calendar, really giving the community a chance to interact face to face. This year it is being hosted at the at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre in Garching and the UK National Grid Initiative (UK NGI) will be present with a stand in the exhibition area and with contributions from many members of the NGS and GridPP teams.

The GridPP collaboration covers many different areas of expertise within the EGI community and this is reflected in the contributions. From security and EMI to accounting and resource usage as well as supporting non-LHC VOs and the challenges of IPV6.

It promises to be a busy week for all concerned and if you can’t attend you can keep up to date through twitter by following the hashtag #EGICF12 or on the Gridcast Blog.
