** Apologies to any who receive multiple copies of this note **
The benefits of deploying grid and related technologies in a broad spectrum
of IT environments continue to grow and evolve. Researchers and scientists
in both academic and commercial settings are using Grids to scale their
compute and data capabilities while enhancing their ability to collaborate
across organizational boundaries. Commercial organizations are finding that
grids are "mission critical" to enabling business agility in a shared,
service-oriented and increasingly virtualized infrastructure.
These and many other uses of grid technologies will be examined in detail at
the upcoming OGF23 event (http://www.ogf.org/OGF23/) in Barcelona, Spain on
OGF23 is the first event organized by the EU-funded project OGF-Europe,
which is chartered with mobilizing and integrating the EU community on grid
standards and best practices. The project will use OGF23 to launch its
tutorial series and its initiatives on Digital Repositories and national and
international grid interoperation.
Grid case studies will be presented through the co-location of the EU-funded
BEinGRID project's Industry Days event (3-5 June) at OGF23. Results and
demonstrations of over 15 different "experiments" with grids in commercial
sectors will be presented.
In parallel to these commercial activities, OGF23 will feature several
workshops on scientific uses of grids and other emerging technologies such
as virtualization and clouds.
In addition, an important part of this multi-faceted event will be the
commercial exhibition where Europe-based projects and vendors will showcase
their latest Grid solutions.
Last and certainly not least, participants will have a great program with a
variety of sessions to choose from including:
. Keynote talks from IT and Grid thought leaders
. Demonstrations of OGF specifications in action
. Best practice sessions where today's grid deployment solutions are
. Standards development working sessions
. Numerous open call sessions driven by the latest needs identified
by the community
