Hi everyone -

This workshop is probably only of interest to the UK academic Condor community, but as I know lots of you are subscribed to this list, it seemed reasonable to post this here. This workshop is a follow-up to an earlier workshop (previously advertised on this list) held in Edinburgh, UK last year.

I should have mentioned that funding for travel to the workshop for individuals from UK academic institutions is available from the EPSRC e-SciNet project. If you wish to be able to claim travel expenses from e-SciNet after the event, please note this in your registration request.

Also, the draft report for the first workshop in this series (mentioned above) can be found at:

This workshop will explore in more technical detail some of the issues
raised during the first workshop in this series, which was hosted by
the e-Science AHM in September 2008.

The workshop will include technical presentations and extended discussions as prompted by the presentations.

Specific objectives for the workshop include:
- fostering working relationships between institutions
- the identification of generic solutions to shared problems
- general knowledge sharing

The organisers would welcome offers of technical presentations that are directly relevant the issues discussed in workshop 1, including:
- scalable networking models for campus grids
- workflow models for campus grids
Please email the organisers: Clare Gryce, Jeremy Yates and Bruce Beckles (e-mails below) if you are willing to give a presentation.
