iSGTW Announcement - Live chat with experts: Choosing the right resources for your research

Together, the livechat and its followup form a sort of “one-stop shopping” for questions about finding the right computing tool for your needs: grid, cloud, supercomputing or other. Image courtesy stock.xchng

Are you a researcher, asking yourself “What is the difference between grid computing, supercomputing, cloud computing, volunteer computing and everything else? How do I know what is the right tool to use for my work?” 

If so, then attend the upcoming online discussion hosted by iSGTW,  called  “Roundtable Q&A: Choose and use the right computing tool for your research, with feedback from the experts.”

This LiveChat will be held at 9:30am Chicago time (Fermi)/4:30pm Geneva time (CERN) on Wednesday, July 14, and will feature experts who will answer your questions in real time, for one hour, using the LiveChat tool.

Our roster of experts will include people such as Steven Newhouse, head of EGI —the new, multimillion-euro organization devoted to the promotion of grid computing in Europe. (More information about our other experts will be added as they are confirmed.)

Afterwards, anyone who was not able to get on the LiveChat, or who had additional questions, can go to our 'Not-Quite-So-Live Followup' on the iSGTW section of the Nature Networks Questions & Answers, where they can email in their brief questions, which our experts promise to answer sometime each day during the week after from July 14 to July 21. The email portion will start immediately after the LiveChat ends.

Still can’t make it?

Don’t despair. These email conversations will archived after the week is over, at the iSGTW Forum at Nature Networks, with brief selected excerpts available on Nature Q&A, and also at the Nature Networks Workbench. But best of all is to attend the LiveChat.

For more about the logistics of participating, and for more about our experts, keep watching this space, where updates will be available. (Please note the change in starting time.)
