DAG-07 Detailed Agenda

Workshop on ‘Developing  Applications on Grid - GARUDA’ (DAG-07)

System Software Development Goup of C-DAC Bangalore conducted the Workshop on Developing Application on Grid -GARUDA (DAG-07), 12th and 13th March 2007 at C-DAC, Knowledge Park, Bangalore. More than 65 members from GARUDA partner institutions, C-DAC centres and ERNET participated in the Workshop.

DAG-07 workshop is specifically designed  to provide the Application developers, and grid users, the required skills to develop and execute their applications on GARUDA. The agenda for the workshop includes a series of presentations and hand-on sessions focusing on the GARUDA technologies, grid applications, data management and usage of various tools supported on GARUDA.

The workshop started with an Introduction of Grid Computing, GARUDA Overview, Prototype applications of GARUDA  (DMSAR, BRAF), and Applications Enablement on GARUDA. The 2nd part of workshop focused on How to develop Applications on GARUDA, Grid Programming Paradigms using MPI, RSL, GLOBUS, Grid Programs Debugging using Gridhra, Data management solutions using SRB. 3rd Part of Presentations covered GARUDA Registration process, Grid Portal usage instructions, Setup and site management steps, GARUDA Sigma, Management and Monitoring tools of GARUDA like Paryavekshanam, IDS, and Problem reporting using RT. Every  Participant is given both Theory and Hands-ON training on the above topics.

The rich and diverse two-day workshop was specifically targeted for research experts and new grid users, who wish to adopt eInfrastructures effectively within their workplace, and how their  research activity and Applications can make  use of GARUDA Grid.   

The meet was successful with active and enthusiastic participation of GARUDA Partners.
