The XRootD and FTS workshop brings together the XRootD and FTS developers and people from Academia, Research, and Industry to discuss current and future data access activities as related to the XRootD framework and to the FTS project. 


Presentations focus on achievements, shortcomings, requirements and future plans for both XRootD and FTS projects.


This year we decided to bundle together these two partially overlapping communities. during the workshop there will be additional sessions focusing on review of backend filesystems, on experiments' plans for the LHC Run3 data analysis and remote data access, and on support for efficient remote data-access for non-HEP VOs.


Registration will open shortly, three months before the event date. The cost for the workshop is 80 EUR for the five days, it will include lunches and coffee breaks. There will be the possibility to join the dinner reception for 40 EUR (alcoholic beverages not included).

About the venue:

Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is a central European city with all the facilities of a modern capital, yet it has preserved its small-town friendliness and relaxed atmosphere. Ljubljana is a city with numerous green areas, which offer excellent opportunities for sports and recreation. The city, with almost 280,000 inhabitants, caters to everyone's needs, since despite the fact that it is one of the smallest European capitals, it strives to provide all the facilities of a metropolis.

Ljubljana is set midway between Vienna and Venice on the crossroads of main European routes, so it is an ideal starting point for visits to many central European cities and countries. Both skiing resorts, attractive in winter, and the Adriatic coast, perfect for summer trips, are only a short distance from Ljubljana.
