The EGEE (Enabling Grids for E-sciencE) project provides the largest production grid infrastructure for applications. In the first two years of the project an increasing number of diverse user communities have been attracted by the possibilities offered by EGEE and have joined the initial user communities. The EGEE user community feels it is now appropriate to meet to share their experiences, and to set new targets for the future, including both the evolution of the existing applications and the development and deployment of new applications onto the EGEE infrastructure.

The EGEE User Forum (1-3 March 2006, Geneva Switzerland) provided an important opportunity for innovative applications to establish contacts with EGEE and with other user communities, to plan for the future usage of the EGEE grid infrastructure, to learn about the latest advances, and to discuss the future evolution in the grid middleware.

The main goal of the User Forum was to create a dynamic user community, starting from the base of existing users, which can increase the effectiveness of the current EGEE applications and promote the fast and efficient uptake of grid technology by new disciplines. EGEE fosters pioneering usage of its infrastructure by encouraging collaboration between diverse scientific disciplines. It does this to evolve and to expand the services offered to the EGEE user community, maximising the scientific, technological and economical relevance of grid-based activities.
