Session EGI Related (Transition)


Monique Petitdidier (LATMOS/IPSL)

Session Description (include details of proposed agenda, potential speakers and expected outcomes)

What we propose is the following:
- 1 session (2hrs) to discuss the SSC proposal, organisation….. (only the SSC potential participants)
The potential speakers are the responsible of each division of the SSC.
For the SSC session the documents and agenda will be made available on the ES Web site in a specific working group space, already created.


The European Earth Science Grid community is currently organized around different projects and Virtual Organisations. The organization of the wider grid user community will change radically with the transition from project-based grid infrastructures to the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI). In previous workshops or within projects we had the opportunity to share the Grid experience on specific topics and in small groups. It has been decided to propose one ES Specialized Support Centre (SSC) in the EGI framework. At the time of the EGEE’09 conference discussions via teleconferences, meetings, mailing would be carried to define the content and organization of the future SSC. Documents and proposals should be written and circulated. This session will be an opportunity for the potential partners to meet, to discuss in details the ES SSC content, organization and finalize the proposals.
