Invitation for EGCF Meeting on March 26
The European Globus Community Forum (EGCF) is following on the success of its first-ever annual meeting in 2011 by hosting its second forum meeting on March 26, 2012 during the European Grid Infrastructure Community Forum (EGI-CF).
EGCF 2012 gives users and developers the opportunity to learn from Globus team experts about current and future plans for the Globus software stack. It also provides a forum for hearing from other users how Globus can help scientists leverage the resources of the European distributed computing infrastructures (DCIs) for their research. Attendees will have a unique chance to actively participate in the building of the Globus community in Europe.
This is your chance to network with other European Globus users and developers, meet the leaders of the Globus project, and learn how your colleagues employ Globus to advance their projects.
The meeting is also a venue for providing important feedback to the Globus team — your voice will be heard not only within the European community, but also by the Globus team in the United States. As such, the event provides a great opportunity to bring a community-centric, science-biased and European-centric view into the Globus roadmap by providing requirements, requesting features, and discussing best practices.
Meeting highlights will include:
- Keynote by Steve Tuecke, Co-PI of the Globus Project, on the future development of Globus and Globus Online
- Hands-on workshops led by Globus experts
- Community stories by researchers using Globus
- Constitution of the 2012 EGCF Council and election of its speaker
A social dinner complements the event and allows participants to mingle with colleagues and meet new people.
