1. Short overview
In addition to the broad, high-level support provided to new virtual organisations, detailed, technical
aid to grid application developers is critical for broadening the EGEE Grid user community. Several members of the EGEE project already provide support for new and experienced grid users who wish to port legacy applications to the EGEE grid infrastructure. Grid experts from these porting teams work closely with application owners in order to understand their requirements and to identify the most suitable methods, approaches and tools for the porting process. The talk introduces the different application porting groups and discusses how this support action will evolve in the third phase of EGEE. The most relevant applications that the porting groups work on will be also introduced alongside with the typical scenarios and methods that are applied by them during the porting process.
