EGEE induction Grid training for users

As a part of EGEE-III NA3 activities, a one day user-oriented training event has been organized by SCL at the Institute of Physics Belgrade on September 19, 2008. The aim of the training was to provide users with basics of Grid computing and gLite services. The participants are also given introduction to EGEE-III, and an overview of SEE-GRID-SCI project and AEGIS activities. Basic usage of the gLite middleware is presented in several hands-on sessions with demonstrations. More than 20 researches and students from different Serbian research Institutes participated in this event.
