  • French Grid Day (en français): Monday, 19 September. The French Grid Day (en français, Rencontres Scientifiques France Grilles 2011) will be the first scientific meeting organised by France Grilles, the French NGI. The mail goal of the French Grid Sessions is to present an overview of the scientific work carried out in all disciplines with an input from production grid infrastructures. The Scientific Committee will award the first France Grilles prize to the most significant contribution.
  • GlobusEUROPE: Monday, 19 September. GlobusEUROPE 2011 is the first-ever conference exclusively for Globus users in Europe. The event is the European counterpart of GlobusWORLD (the leading annual Globus event worldwide) and has an equally strong community focus with topics geared specifically for the concerns of a European audience. If you are a European Globus user, this is the must-attend event of the year! There is no better forum to connect with European Globus users and get your questions answered by experts from Europe and the US. In addition, all attendees will receive a free gift to commemorate this first annual event. GlobusEUROPE is organized by the Initiative for Globus in Europe (IGE) and co-located with the Technical Forum of the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI), the Open Grid Forum 33rd Conference (OGF33), and Grid2011.
  •  OGF 33: 19-21 September. Due to its co-location with EGI and Grid2011, OGF33 will provide a unique opportunity to join with leaders from around the world in an open forum to foster collaboration on common interests, develop best practices and further standardization in key areas of distributed infrastructures.
  • Grid 2011: 22-23 September. The 12th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Grid Computing (Grid 2011) is an annual international meeting that brings together a community of researchers, developers, practitioners, and users involved with Grid technology and Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCI), including cloud computing and Green IT. The conference will feature invited keynotes, workshops, a poster session and refereed paper presentations.
  • SIENA: Wednesday, 21 September: The main goal of the workshop is to focus on DCI assets for the purpose of serving the eScience community and identifying standards required to make these assets interoperable. The workshop features a presentation from Carl Christian Buhr, Member of the Cabinet of Neelie Kroes European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Agenda, as well as insights into the various assets that the EC-funded DCI and ESFRI projects can offer in the areas of eScience, Industry and eGovernment. Effective dialogue between stakeholder participants will be ensured through an Open Discussion on technical challenges, eGovernment, industry uptake, and call to action.
  • 9th e-Infrastructure Concertation Meeting (by invitation only): 22-23 September. The meeting aims to introduce the new e-Infrastructures projects starting in 2011, to take stock of progress in e-Infrastructures and to discuss future perspectives on data, cloud technologies and e-Science environments, HPC and Software.
