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 chance 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.

The event will be co-located with the European Grid Infrastructure Community Forum (EGI-CF 2013).

Highlights of the Forum meeting in 2013 include:

  • Community stories by researchers using Globus
  • Panel discussion about the future of Globus in Europe by leading experts
  • Unique opportunity to present and discuss Globus requirements with European users 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!)

Registration for the event is now open.

EGCF is waiting to hear your Globus success story!
