AccessGridBoF at All Hands 2006

This BOF will provide attendees an opportunity for discussion on issues concerning the use of Access Grid within the e-Science community. It will provide an opportunity to discuss current usage, new initiatives offered by the UK Access Grid Support Centre (AGSC), and future directions of this and related technologies.

There are now over 80 Access Grid nodes registered throughout academia in the UK, with this number growing all the time. The technology is used for meetings, seminars, research and for advanced collaborations, such as large-scale computational steering and discussion of data visualizations. The e-Science community is one of the largest users of this technology.

Presentations will include: a summary of the recent survey that addressed concerns about the quality of collaboration experienced using Access Grid; new initiatives proposed by the AGSC to improve the user experience; a project to rework the media tools that underpin the open source Access Grid (VIC and RAT) (known as the SUMOVER project); a summary of audio/video/data collaboration tools. There will be significant time devoted to general user and developer community discussion.
