CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: is now closed and successful applicants have been informed
The EGI Community Forum will be held, together with the second EMI Technical Conference, at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) in Garching near Munich. The event is an opportunity for the research community that depends upon distributed computing infrastructure to share knowledge, needs and vision for how the European Grid Infrastructure can better support their research over the coming years.

The call for participation is now closed and successful applicants have been informed. Descriptions of the five tracks against which proposals for papers, posters, demonstrations and workshops have been selected can be found on the left menu.

Submission is now closed. Submissions have been selected according to their applicability to the tracks listed beneath. Colour coding refers to the Track as shown on the Timetable (note that meetings, training and workshops are shown in non specific light colours).

- Users and communities                                    (Yellow)
- Software services for users and communities  (Brown)
- Middleware services                                        (Dark Green)
- Operational services and infrastructure           (Light Green)
- Coordination and Communication                      (Dark Blue)

Co-location with the EMI project and the participation of other development initiatives should ensure that both the research leaders and the technology providers are able to share their needs and coordinate their plans. Whilst the subsequent publication of selected papers will add a formal dimension to this sharing of knowledge, the immediate goal of the event is to ensure that EGI continues to steer a steady course towards the future needs of European researchers and their collaborators outside of Europe.

We are planning to publish the contributions. The mechanism is still being discussed and evaluated - further information will be announced in due course.
