Tag: EGI Technical Forum
This week, over 400 participants from the European research-computing community – and some of their American partners – came together in one of Europe’s most beloved cities, Prague. On Monday, GlobusEUROPE took over the third floor of the Hotel Clarion Congress, located in Vysocany, a modern section of the city, just 15 minutes away from the historic center of Prague and the famous Prague Castle. The remainder of the week, Tuesday through Friday, is dedicated to the European Grid Infrastructure Technical Forum.
This week during the EGI Technical Forum in Lyon, France we spoke with a number of European organizations with newer or still-developing grid initiatives to expand infrastructure access for research and science. Among the groups we spoke with were representatives from SwING, the Swiss National Grid project.
The second half of September is a ripe time to touch base with the European grid and cloud communities. This week we are attending the EGI Technical Forum in Lyon, France where grids and cloud computing technologies are shaping new paradigms for European research and science endeavors. Five co-located events during the week will give us a sweeping overview of progress toward infrastructure goals in Europe.
