EGEE'06 CONFERENCE: 25-28 September 2006, CICG, Geneva, Switzerland

With less than a month to go before the EGEE'06 conference, we invite you to register now to this unique event where you will be able to meet with research, academic and business experts to discuss the current status and future of Grid technology.

The week-long programme of EGEE'06 will offer a wide mix of meetings aimed at specific communities or discussing specific technical topics, ranging from a business track and a mini user forum, technical discussions on progress in the fields of middleware, operations and applications support, to sessions of projects related to EGEE, as well as cross-activity meetings. A selected number of Grid users will demonstrate the applications that they are running on the EGEE infrastructure and participants can find out more about various aspects of Grid in an industrial and research exhibition.

The opening plenary will feature talks by notable international speakers, including representatives of the European Commission, the Swiss government, Intel (Gold Sponsor), CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research), the US National Science Foundation, the Japanese NAREGI project, and the Library of Alexandria. Further keynote presentations at plenary sessions during the week will be given by Dennis Gannon (Indiana University), Carole Goble (University of Manchester), David Snelling (Fujitsu) and Mark Linesch (HP) that give insights into standards emerging in the Grid field and ideas on how to make Grids easier to use and encourage adoption from a wide community rather than Grid experts.

Don't miss this ideal opportunity to meet high level representatives in the field of Grids, users and Grid experts all in one place to discuss the future of Grid technology!
