Enabling Grids for E-sciencE is a major European initiative to develop a grid for researchers. EGEE-II is the second phase of a four-year program, and includes 91 partners in 32 countries, with many other groups contributing to the project’s work.

EGEE was originally developed to make grid resources available to European researchers, but is rapidly expanding to work with the global grid community. EGEE-II works closely with other grid initiatives such as DEISA, the European supercomputing grid, Japan’s NAREGI, and the Open Science Grid in the United States.

 Training Session Following OGF20 and EGEE User Forum
On Saturday and Sunday, May 12–13, following the OGF20 and EGEE User Forum in Manchester, United Kingdom, EGEE, ETICS and OMII-Europe projects will host free training sessions.

One training session, organized by EGEE, will focus on developing applications using gLite middleware. More information, including how to register, is available from the session Web site.

The other training session, organized by the ETICS and OMII-Europe projects, attendees will learn how to build and test grid middleware and applications using the ETICS Service, and how OMII-Europe works with ETICS to ensure interoperability. Registration information and a detailed agenda is available from the session Web site.
