1. MEETINGS AND DISSEMINATION

1.1. CONFERENCES/WORKSHOPS ORGANISED

Date Location Title Participants Outcome (Short report & Indico URL)
28/05/2012 Institute of Physics Belgrade, Serbia Grid Training for Power Users 19 The Scientific Computing Laboratory of the Institute of Physics Belgrade organized an EGI training event for the AEGIS user community held on 28 May 2012. The goal of this one-day training event was to introduce utilization of the Grid resources to AEGIS users through the series of hands-on sessions. It included practical guides for submitting simple jobs, data manipulation, interaction with file catalogs on Grid and submitting advanced jobs. Participants also had an opportunity to learn about the mechanism of authorization and authentication of Grid users, and gLite services architecture.
