TNA2.1 Activity Management (Steven Newhouse,

This task will be managed by the PD. The agenda of the policy groups will be determined by their respective Chairs in consultation with the PD, and supported technically by the staff in this activity through the preparation of discussion documents and note taking, and administratively by the PO established in WP1 through meeting logistics. The Dissemination Manager employed in TNA2.2 will coordinate the other members of the dissemination team and the staff located in the NGIs and other related projects. The Policy Development Manager employed in TNA2.3 will coordinate the work of the local staff and those in the NGIs contributing to the discussion in policy matters.

TNA2.2 Dissemination (Catherine Gater,

An experienced Dissemination Manager will manage this task through the coordination of the staff within and those located in the NGIs. This task will disseminate EGI's activity within the project and worldwide through dissemination contacts located within the NGIs and related EC proposed projects. It will maintain and develop content for the project website, the monthly PD letter, a quarterly newsletter, and will develop case studies and 'success stories' around the applications and communities within the applications database. The task will design and print dissemination material and participate in European and International distributed computing meetings through stands and promotional material.

TNA2.3 Policy Development (Sergio Andreozzi,

A Policy Development Manager will coordinate the work of this task and will report to the activity leader, the PD. Policies are needed to govern the provision of a high quality, distributed computing, production-oriented infrastructure., the coordinating body for this community, provides management and policy groups for developing and approving policies relating to operations, software quality, security, user communities and general governance. The development of these policies is supported by the project and may have relevance and impact with other European (eg DEISA and PRACE) and International e-infrastructure (eg Open Science Grid, TeraGrid) who will be involved in these policy discussions as appropriate.

TNA2.4 Event Management (Rob van der Meer,

This task provides the support and management of two large community-driven events each year: a European e-Infrastructure Conference (expanding on the EGEE series of conferences) and a European Distributed Computing User Forum (expanding on the EGEE User Forum series of conferences). The location of each meeting will be selected by the EGI Council following an open bidding process from the NGIs. For each meeting, a dedicated programme committee (under a programme chair), drawn from the community, and a local organising committee (under a chair from the bidding organisation), with members drawn from the EGI project office and the local organisers, will be formed.
