GARUDA - NKN Partners meet on 15th and 16th July 2011 at Bangalore.

We are happy to announce that GARUDA - the National Grid Computing Initiative has made substantial progress including migrating to the National Knowledge Network (NKN) in many locations which in turn has enhanced the power of GARUDA. In view of this we are holding a joint GARUDA-NKN Partners Meet on 15th - 16th July 2011 at Bangalore.

The objective of the joint meet is to provide a forum to gain invaluable insights for collaborative initiatives in Grid computing and NKN. During this meet, we will discuss the progress, share our viewpoints, present case studies, experiences and explore new technologies to take GARUDA and NKN project activities into next higher level.

This event will be a common platform to share as well as put across our technology advances and applications that are useful to the national scientific and academic institutions.

We are overwhelmed by your responses to the event. Due to the paucity of space and the related logistic issue, the registration of the event is already closed. We are unable to confirm the registration of all the request. However, you can still watch the event from our desktop as we are planning to arrange for live streaming of all the sessions. Please watch this space for further update.

Best regards,

Dr. Subrata Chattopadhyay
