The Worldwide Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Computing Grid collaboration cordially invites you to attend the LHC Grid Fest.
The LHC Grid Fest celebrates the readiness of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid, an e-infrastructure conceived and designed to manage an estimated 15 million gigabytes of data every year—and with this tool, to support the research of more than 7000 physicists around the globe.
The Worldwide LHC Computing Grid is not only a celebration of technology and innovation, but also of international collaboration and cooperation. We invite you to join government and funding agency representatives and scientists across the world in commemorating the start of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid’s massive data challenge.

Please ensure that you register before 26 September 2008, as attendance at this event is strictly limited to registered guests. You may also register for tours at this time.
