The submission deadline for proposals for the EGI User Forum has been extended to 24 December.

The EGI User Forum 2011, which will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania on 11-15 April 2011, welcomes contributions from the European e-Infrastructure community and their international collaborators, on topics that include (but are not limited to):

  • Current research approaches or results obtained from using e-Infrastructures
  • Domain specific and generic portals that simplify access to e-Infrastructures
  • Experiences from applications ported, developed or deployed with e-Infrastructures
  • End-user environments (tools/portals/gateways) for accessing e-Infrastructure
  • Services or software relating to large-scale data analysis or data-oriented applications on distributed computing infrastructures
  • Provision and support for user-oriented e-Infrastructures
  • Management and/or exploitation of emerging computing technologies (desktops, virtualisation, clouds)
  • Integration, sharing and exploitation of national and international e-Infrastructure
  • Delivery of operational e-Infrastructure services to its users

The event will feature an exhibition area open for organizations active within the EGI community (projects, NGIs, companies) to present their work. In addition, end-users, application and tool developers, operations staff and others are encouraged to participate by submitting abstracts for:

  • Oral presentations
  • Posters
  • Demonstrations
  • Workshops
  • Stands for the exhibition area

We welcome online submissions of extended abstracts (not full technical papers) that include a brief overview, a description of work, impact of work, and main conclusions.

Accepted abstracts for oral presentations will be published in the conference’s abstract book. The program committee will group related oral presentations into sessions, wherever possible. Some submitted oral presentations may following review by the program committee be assigned to a poster session.

Posters will be on display all week during the event and the selected demonstrations will have allocated time on the booths provided.

The exhibition area will be open for organizations active within the EGI community to present their work. Requests for co-located workshops will need to identify how the workshop organizers will ensure a high-quality program that is relevant to the EGI community.
