EGI Webinar Programme
In March 2013 EGI established an "EGI Webinar Programme" whereby web based presentations and workshops are arranged for the benefit of those who wish to expand and enhance their use of EGI's distributed computing and data facilities at large. Each Webinar event delivers an interactive presentation by a guest lecturer who works in a specialist field relevant to the EGI community. Each lecture will include a Q&A session. Recordings of the webinars are saved in EGI's Document DataBase and can be accessed in the first instance from the EGI Training Marketplace. As of October 2013, recordings of completed webinars can also be found on the EGI YouTube channel.
Why should I participate?
- EGI Webinars provide first hand information about established and/or emerging services that can help you successfully use the grid and cloud infrastructures of the European Grid Infrastructure collaboration.
- EGI Webinars provide opportunities to interact with user support teams, software developers, site managers, platform developers, platform integrators and representatives of scientific communities and National Grid Infrastructures.
- EGI Webinars are free and are open to anyone. Note however that participation is limited to 25 connections / Webinar event.
How can I participate?
Before the Webinar: You normally need to register for a Webinar in advance as the EGI Webex service limits the number of participants to 25. Registration is available through the event specific agenda pages (see them in the table below). The Webinars are hosted in the EGI Webex service and full details of the event programme and participation will be published in EGI's INDICO pages. Please follow the instructions on the particular event agenda page to setup your connection. You will need a Web browser with a Java plug-in to attend the Webex events.
After the Webinar: Webinars will normally be recorded and a copy of the recording will be made accessible after the event for viewing by the whole of the community. A link to the video recording will be included both via this Wiki page and Indico. The recording will be saved in the EGI DocDB (searchable) and uploaded to the EGI YouTube.
The EGI Webinar programme is managed by Richard Mclennan <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Gergely Sipos <email@example.com> from the EGI.eu User Community Support Team.
