To organise a high impact presence for EGI at the 2012 European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly

  • To host a stand to promote EGI
  • To disseminate material to this community describing how EGI can support them and how existing researchers are utilising grid technology
  • To participate in the session on Grid and Cloud computing
  • To identify in advance of the meeting sub-communities within Geoscience/Earth Sciences (especially those connected with ESFRI projoects and/or connected to the NGIs


The expected outputs of this project are:

  • To host a stand at the event,
  • raise the profile of EGI to this community and to
  • identify and activate new sub-communities with grid-related needs that EGI can help satisfy.


  1. Book EGI stand at the event (EGI)
  2. Submit proposal for session: ESSI2.10 Earth science on Cloud, HPC and Grid (proposal accepted)
  3. Confirm names of people from NGIs who will be present at the event and willing to support EGI at the booth
  4. Identify researchers who will be present by country (NILs)
  5. Ensure that EGI users have appropriate logos on their slides etc.
  6. Identify individuals that should be contacted during the week as prospective users on the infrastructure
  7. Produce brochure with compelling use case(s) featuring users making use of grid resources for their science (Sara Coelho)
