With the establishment of large scale multidisciplinary production Grid infrastructures such as the EGEE, OSG, DEISA, TeraGrid, or NAREGI, the concept of Virtual Organizations (VO) has been constantly refined and efficient management of VOs and their policies is becoming one of the central topics for these infrastructures.

This workshop is the third of the series on topics in production Grids that was initiated at HPDC-15 with the workshop on Management of Rights in Production Grids and followed by the workshop on Data Handling in Production Grids at HPDC-16.

This workshop will bring together practitioners and researchers on all aspects of VO management to discuss capabilities of existing technologies, identify areas where new functionalities are needed and explore how latest research results can be integrated into the software stack and procedures of production Grids.

Topics include, but are not restricted to:
  • Scalable VO management systems, establishment and closure of VOs
  • Mapping VO policies to the underlying resources
  • Managed vs. opportunistic resource usage, usage across VOs
  • Data sharing between VOs
