Wider impact of this work
Description of the work
The EMI project is a collaboration among ARC, dCache, gLite, and UNICORE and all these middleware technologies serve the needs for scientific users with distributed systems since many years. EMI continues and documents these use cases under the umbrella of EMI product use cases clearly illustrating where and how EMI products are used across a wide variety of scenarios. The EMI products use cases are the key to understand and communicate the current usage of EMI products
in practice and attract interest by new user communities that have similar use cases (e.g. such as those arising from ESFRI RIs with computationals and storage demands). This presentation will provide an overview of the use case scenarios specifically in the context of user communities and so called Virtual Research Environments (VREs) and give a glimpse on the answer to 'quo vadis EMI?'.
