IGE asks for your support!

Dear European Globus User!

The Initiative for Globus in Europe, IGE  is the central European meeting point for all Globus users, developers, and administrators in Europe. Over the last 1.5 years we set up many Globus-related services, such as bringing Globus closer to you by making it a part of  the EGI UMD, providing support for Globus, developing requested Globus adaptations (batch system adaptors, accounting, etc.), organizing Globus training sessions (next one is at GridKa) and conferences (next is the GlobusEUROPE in Prague on September 17th, and the EGCF meetings), providing easily installable binary Globus distributions, etc.

In order to assess how effective our work is, IGE collaborates with ERINA+. As part of this assessment, ERINA+ has devised a short questionnaire and IGE would like to ask all who work with Globus technologies in one way or another to fill in this questionnaire (selecting IGE as project) at

Please also pass on this letter to colleagues and friends who might otherwise not receive it. The deadline is by the end of August 2012, so prompt responses to the questionnaire are much appreciated.

And last but not least: please register yourself in EGCF, the European Globus Community Forum. EGCF will maintain Globus-related software after the end of IGE, enable discussions and meetings, gives you a premium account with IGE’s bug tracker, etc. Please register through

A registration integrates you into the European Globus community and unlocks many advantages for you! It is free of charge and has no obligations on your part.

Thank you very much
Dr. Helmut Heller
Project director of IGE
