WP5 Kick Off meeting 30 November/1 December 2006

The aim of this meeting is to collect the interests about Grid activities and to verify what we actually expect from computational and data Grid. Therefore one of the goals this meeting is to make an inventory of Grid initiatives and experiences related to Astronomy and Astrophysics, to exchange those experiences and to collect inputs coming from all of you.

The meeting will be organized in Trieste at the Astronomical Observatory and it will last for two days, 30 November 2006 and the 1 December 2006. Participants will dedicate the first day to presentations, while during the second day we will overview the result of the first day activity and we will discuss about our plan for the next months.


In order to make easier the registration of interested people to the event and to book rooms in hotels in Trieste. To confirm your participation, we suggest you to contact as soon as possible:

  • Alice Sossi Mail;
  • Giuliano Taffoni Mail;
