GlobusWORLD 2011 will be held April 11-13, at Argonne (near Chicago, IL). Co-located with the Cloud Computing and its Applications 2011 Conference, GlobusWORLD comprises two and a half days of presentations, tutorials, and networking opportunities related to the Globus software ecosystem. Building on the success of last year’s event and the launch of Globus Online at SC10 in New Orleans last November, GlobusWORLD 2011 will feature new user success stories, expanded software-as-a-service capabilities in Globus Online, updates on Globus Toolkit development, and sneak peeks into planned features.

The GlobusWORLD 2011 program offers keynote talks by Globus leaders and presentations of innovative Globus-based infrastructure and applications by users and community leaders. A day of tutorials after the conference provides participants an opportunity for hands-on interaction with current Globus technologies and in-depth discussions of selected topics.

There are multiple opportunities for participation and proposals for presentations and posters are currently solicited. Submissions should be centered on Globus applications and development of related technologies, with emphasis on unique capabilities and value delivered to researchers and other end users. In addition to this call for participation, a number of engaging events will be hosted where participants may compete for prizes and recognition.

We from IGE will be there to represent the European community and give an update on the current status overseas — meet us there and share your views with us!
