Open Science Grid - 2011 All Hands Meeting, March 7th-11th, Harvard Medical School


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.

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.
