Early-bird opportunity to reVAMP Virtual Organisations
The VAMP workshop will take place in Utrecht, Netherlands, on 6-7 September 2012.

Register now for an early bird discount on registration for the VAMP (VO Architectural Middleware Planning) workshop that will take place in Utrecht, Netherlands, on 6-7 September 2012. The discount is available until midnight on 2 August 2012.

VAMP will discuss the challenges and opportunities surrounding international research groups, also known as Virtual Organisations (VOs), in the research, education and scientific communities. It will bring together VOs and international federation operators to define effective ways for VOs to use inter-federation infrastructure(s) and to share and discuss case studies, best practices, requirements and design inputs for the VOs of the future.

The VAMP workshop welcomes wide participation from among international research groups, including social science and humanities research groups as well as large science and engineering collaborations. IT architects from campuses and national research and education network (NREN) organisations who are engaged in supporting the identity management needs of the research and education community are invited to join. Representatives of funding agencies that support VOs and scientific research are also invited to participate.

TERENA is co-organising the VAMP workshop with Internet2 and SURFnet, which is also providing sponsorship. More information, including details about registration and accommodation can be found at the link below.
