OSG Consortium All Hands Meeting

US/Central
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Kirk and Pine Road Batavia, IL
Description
It is that time again! The OSG Consortium All Hands Meeting!

This very "collaborative" venue provides current and prospective OSG members, users and partners with an opportunity to talk through the activities and problems, lessons learned and future plans for the Open Science Grid Consortium.

The All Hands Meeting will be held March 8-10, 2010 at Fermilab in Batavia, IL. An OSG Council meeting will follow in the same location on March 11th.

As usual additional related meetings will be co-scheduled with the All Hands Meeting. This should be an exciting time for the US LHC with the systems being used once again for real data processing: The

US ATLAS Facility meeting and

US CMS Tier-2 and Tier-3 meetings will both be held early in the week.

On Monday we will continue the tradition to have 1/2 day workshops on specific topics - please contact any member of the Executive Board if you have requests for one of these. Any suggestions on speakers, discussion fora, BOFs etc are welcomed also.

On Tuesday afternoon there will be a session where you can set up a demonstration of an application, technology or other activity that you would like to share with your colleagues (the "Electronic Demonstration Session"). You are invited to submit an abstract for this session. We will make available a table, chair, power strip, wireless network connection and a 17" screen. Slots for this session are limited to about 10. The program committee will make the selection of which demonstrations to include based on the abstracts, by March 1st.

With your input and participation we look forward to another good meeting!

      Kirk and Pine Road Batavia, IL

      An opportunity for the exchange of ideas as well as suggestions for future directions for OSG with respect to the collective VO's.

      Please see below for the topics of discussion:
      - How does your VO provide dynamic and ad hoc requirements to OSG, and is this process effective?
      - How should OSG get engaged for sustaining your VO?
      - Is your VO's interest well represented in OSG? If not, any suggestions for improvement?
      - Best practices for attracting and retaining users. E.g., how to engage users of local HPC for using the grid.
      - Resource discovery tools
      - Tools/techniques to better allow troubleshooting and resolution of the many components of the OSG software stack
      - How can we improve installation and end user documentation?
      - Accounting tools
      - What does "supporting a particular VO" mean for a site?
      - How can a VO ensure that a particular site supports the needs of its users?
      - What is the required list of software? (There are several "optional" components that are actually required to run, so
      why are they optional)
      - Potential funding opportunities
