Dear GARUDA Partner,

As you are aware, currently Foundation Phase of GARUDA is operational since April 2008. We are working on new Architectures for Service Oriented GARUDA, new tools required, networking and more challenging applications.

We want GARUDA partners to participate, and handle more challenging applications with the enhanced power of GARUDA in the current phase. It is time now for all of us to meet, to discuss the progress, share our view points, case studies, experiences, and new technologies needed, to take GARUDA to the next level of operational mode.

We are pleased to invite you for the Fourth GARUDA Partners Meet, to be held on 28th and 29th November 2008, at Angsana Resort, Bangalore.

This letter is sent to you in advance to enable you to block the dates, in your busy schedule, and make necessary travel arrangements to attend this meet. C-DAC will take care of the arrangements for your comfortable stay at the venue, on 28th and 29th for two members from your institute.

We want this opportunity to be used by partners, to talk on their applications, and share their viewpoints on various operational requirements and the road map of GARUDA. We are planning to have few slots in the programme for Partners to share their experiences, and showcase their challenging applications.

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

We look forward to have you with us, on this occasion.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,

Dr. B.B. Prahlada Rao
