GRID Workshop, the 19th of October 2007

The GRID worship will be a “hands-on” workshop for the interested NREN user or scientist.

The aim is to enable each participant to become self reliant enough to be able to use GRID technology.

As an example, setting up a client on his/her machine and use it.

Workshop supervisor is Michael K. Gindonis, CSC, Finland.

Assistants are Anna J. Ármannsdóttir and Anil Thapa from RHI, Iceland.

Additional assistance is provided by Frederik Orellana, NBI, Denmark.

Also assistance through IRC from Olli Tourunen at CSC Finland.

Programme
09:00 Introduction to Nordugrid, Michael K. Gindonis, CSC

10:00 Nordugrid Example demonstration

Coffee Break

Rest of the day will mostly be hands on exercises.

The workshop closes probably around 19:00.
