South-Caucasus Grid & Cloud Computing Workshop

Georgian Technical University, Tbilisi (Georgia)

Georgian Technical University, Tbilisi (Georgia)

77, Kostava Str. 0175 Tbilisi Georgia
Alexander Sharmazanashvili (Computer Aided Design Center (GE)), Dario Barberis (Università e INFN Genova (IT))

This event follows on from the workshops held in October 2010 and 2012 that brought together for the first time the ATLAS groups from the South Caucasus countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia) to discuss common computing related issues. It aims at fostering contacts between ATLAS collaborators and computing people in these countries and experts in ATLAS software and Grid and Cloud computing technologies. The workshop will take place in the rich and pleasant cultural environment of Tbilisi.
