European leadership in e-science and grids
Calendar of events
IST 200415-17 november 2004
The annual conference of the 6th Framework Programme of Information Society Technologies
(IST 2004) will be held – in the week before the workshop and
eIRG meeting - from 15 to 17 november 2004. There will be several
grid-related talks and dissemination activities around grids and
e-science at IST.
- Workshop e-Infrastructures18 november 2004
The next workshop on
the eInfrastructures initiative will consist of a plenary meeting (to set the context for the whole workshop), a real workshop part (where subjects are discussed in more depth in smaller groups) and a final plenary (where the results from the parallel sessions are summarised).
- e-IRG meeting19 november 2004
The next meeting of the eInfrastructure
Reflection Group (eIRG) will bring together representatives from
European governments to discuss the future e-Infrastructure of Europe.
Grid Summit22/23 november 2004
The Netherlands as chair of the EU has taken the inititative for a first joint meeting of the various grid infrastructure projects, to stimulate cooperation and knowledge exchange between participants. This is a public event for all people interested in grids and e-Infrastructure. Presentations by eminent speakers such as Mark Linesch (the new GGF Chair), Prof. T. Sato (director General of the Earth Simulator, the worlds fastest computer), the Dutch minister of education, culture and science Maria van der Hoeven and representatives from EGEE, DEISA, SEE-GRID and DILIGENT. Grid Summit is an EU Grid infrastructure concertation event.
DEISA meeting23/24 november 2004
DEISA (DEISA (Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications) is a consortium of national supercomputing centres in Europe aiming to jointly build and operate a distributed terascale supercomputing facility using grid technologies. The project members will meet and also have joint meetings with other projects.
DILIGENT meeting23/24 november 2004
DILIGENT (Digital Library Infrastructure on Grid Enabled Technology) will create an advanced test-bed that will allow members of dynamic virtual e-Science organizations to access shared knowledge and to collaborate in a secure, coordinated, dynamic and cost-effective way. The test-bed will build upon the efforts of the EGEE project, and it will integrate the experiences and tools developed by a number of key leading European research groups in the area of digital libraries. The DILIGENT infrastructure will be demonstrated and validated by two complementary real-life application scenarios: one from the cultural heritage domain and one from the environmental e-Science domain.
EGEE meeting23/24/25/26 november 2004
EGEE (Enabling Grids for E-science in Europe) brings together experts
from over 27 countries with the common aim of building on recent
advances in Grid technology and developing a service Grid infrastructure
in Europe which is available to scientists 24 hours-a-day.
SEE-GRID meeting23/24 november 2004
SEE-GRID (South Eastern European Grid-enabled eInfrastructure Development) aims to initiate grid activities in South East Europe (Greece, Albania, Bulgaria, FYR of Macedonia, Serbia-Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Romania, Turkey, and Croatia).
