Registration for the 4th NRENs and Grids Workshop Now Open

The 4th NRENs and Grids Workshop, organised by TERENA, will take place in Amsterdam on 6-7 December 2006. It follows three highly successful workshops that explored the challenges related to NRENs and Grids. The second workshop focused on AAI, while the third concentrated on security issues.

The 4th workshop will focus on interoperability of network resources and Grids, with emphasis on the implementation and monitoring of Service Level Agreements (SLA) at NREN, campus and end-to-end levels. The following topics will be addressed at the workshop:

- SLA - definition and implementation in campuses and NRENs
- end-to-end SLA issues for Grids
- automatic configuration of network resources in Grids
- network monitoring frameworks in NRENs and campuses, and integration with Grid frameworks
- fault detection and interactions between networks and Grids in such cases

A draft agenda is available to view at: http://www.terena.nl/activities/nrens-n-grids/workshop-04/agenda.html

Attending the workshop is free of charge, but registration is mandatory for all participants. Participants need to cover their own travel and accommodation costs. The deadline for registration, imposed by logistical constraints, is Monday 20 November.
