Although the Spanish National Grid Initiative is officially starting in July 2009, it has a long trajectory as a consequence of the participation in numerous general-purpose and application-area specific Grid infrastructure projects, such as DATAGRID, CrossGrid, EGEE,-II,-III, EELA-1/-2, int.eu.grid, DORII, EUFORIA, WLCG, etc. and a large activity at the national level. The main actors have been organised in the form of research networks since 8 years ago and have progressed strongly in the last 2 years with the start-up of the Spanish Network for e-Science.
This session is a window for the exchange of experiences at the international level. The session will cover middleware, infrastructure organisation and main applications, developed in the frame of the groups working at the Spanish National Grid Initiative.
Special requirements other than the set up mentioned in the CfA text.
No special room requirements are needed. Attendance is expected on the order of 40-60 depending on the other concurrent sessions from the rest of the programme.
