2nd International Workshop on Campus and Community Grids, continuing interoperability (4/5)
Wolfgang Gentzsch, Laura McGinnis, David Wallom
This workshop will continue the run of Campus Grid workshops that was started with at GGF-16 (Boston) where the workshop there was hosted in collaboration with Harvard University.
This workshop will also though have the added benefit of being able to call on the experiences of the community grids attendees to ensure that issues arising from them are not missed, and hopefully provide a balanced view of connectivity isues between local, regional, national and internationaal grid endeavours.
With the success of the GIN activity at getting interoperability between National infrastructures it is important that we now expand and move this activity to show how already existent Campus Grid systems can be included in this activity and hence use this to connect them with the national grids. There is also an increasing realisation that these themselves will eventually be constructed by a federation of smaller campus and community activities and here the lessons already learned by GIN can be most readily utilised.
Using a mix of invited speakers from institutions that have already joined differing scales of infrastructures together and breakout sessions to identify key areas where further work is needed both to within areas such as user lifecycle (including implementations of usage records and improvements to Resource usage specifications) and distributed systems management. There is also the large underlying area of data, storage, management and accounting that will be addresses
- User management, passing identities and accounting
- Support models, both systems and users
- licensing within cross organisational systems
- Data in grids, authenticity and integrity, access controls,technology evolution management.
