The CernVM Users Workshop will take place this year in the United Kingdom, hosted by Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire with help from the STFC Scientific Computing Department and GridPP UK project.

Following the successful edition held at CERN in March 2015, the workshop aims to bring together users and developers to discuss the current status of the CernVM ecosystem and the future directions. Particular focus will be given to the integration with the containers world and how this can improve the experience with the cloud paradigm shift now occurring in HEP computing centers.

As a novelty, the third day of the workshop will be entirely dedicated to 'hands-on' sessions. Whilst the agenda is yet to be decided, there will be opportunities for demos and tutorials, also for users to come forward with topics for discussion.

A video-conference service will be provided to help remote attendance.
