Dear GARUDA Partner,

C-DAC welcomes you to participate in the 2nd workshop for Developing Applications on GARUDA (DAG 07), being held at IIT Mumbai from 28th to 30th June 2007.

You may recall that the first workshop in the DAG 07 series was held at Bangalore on 12th and 13th of March 2007. Based on popular demand and feed back from the participants of the first workshop, we have restructured the programme to a three-day workshop to cover Grid Application Development Techniques in greater detail.

The workshop agenda includes a series of presentations and hands-on sessions focusing on the usage of various supported tools and technologies aimed for applications development on GARUDA. The three-day programme is specifically targeted for both new grid users as well as users who wish to use advanced grid techniques to exploit the power of GARUDA for their applications.

Participation is free of charge for GARUDA Partners and a nominal fee will be charged for others. We also look forward to your feedback on the given tentative agenda so that the sessions can be customized to make the programme more effective.

We would also very much appreciate if you could circulate this information among the application developers and researchers of your institute.

If you have any query or are in need of additional information, please contact Dr.Prahlada Rao ( or Savitha Gowda (

We look forward to seeing you in IIT Mumbai.

With best wishes,
N. Mohanram

(Please note that admission is restricted only to 2 members per institute).
