Wednesday plenary Save to my Google calendar

In the plenary session, Ian Bird will talk about the successful first year of LHC data taking, demonstrating that the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) computing infrastructure is able to support the huge volumes of data and large scale distributed analysis required His talk will illustrate how the LHC experiments and the 150 or so computing centres involved collaborate successfully, and give a brief overview of the technical implementation of the distributed computing infrastructure, mentioning some of the key successes and lessons learned. Finally, Ian Bird will describe the evolution of the collaboration and the infrastructure to make use of evolving technologies and address areas of concern.
In his plenary presentation,“Building communities: bricks, rules or generosity”, Andrew Cormack will talk about what creates a community and what can go wrong. The talk will consider examples from both the real and on-line worlds, celebrate some of the NREN community's successes and suggest issues likely to arise as we continue to develop and expand our communities.
