Last month’s 3rd EGEE User Forum, held from 11-14 February in Clermont-Ferrand, France, attracted more than 300 attendees to more than 100 presentations, 19 demos and 36 posters.

Plenary sessions included presentations on the European Grid Initiative Design Study , the High Energy Physics Grid and the SHARE project.

The 19 demonstrated grid applications ranged from mathematical models of living cells to bioinformatics portals, as well as tools to make using grids simpler and easier to control.

The Health-e-Child project, represented by Jerome Revillard and David Manset, won the prize for the best demonstration with their Gateway and Case Reasoner, a concrete implementation and use-case of a gLite-based healthgrid for European paediatrics.

EGEE plays an active and invaluable role by supporting the HeC community in better understanding how best to use gLite, how to gridify biomedical applications and stay up to speed with ongoing developments,” says demo-winner David Manset, director of biomedical applications at maat Gknowledge.

Emmanuel Medernach of LPC, France, won the poster prize for his project “Fair Grid Scheduling,” which looked at ways of efficiently sharing grid resources. Other posters covered applications, tools, dashboards and methods for making the grid more accessible.

“Looking back over the three annual EGEE user fora, the basic question has changed from ‘if’ grids can be used to produce scientific results to ‘how best’ to use grids for these ends, as well as new business models,” says Bob Jones, EGEE project director.

EGEE will hold its next conference, EGEE’08, in Istanbul, Turkey, from 22-26 September 2008.
