In particular delegates are encouraged to share knowledge and experience, lessons learnt and good practice in the following areas.

- High Performance Computing

GridTalk is here with both EGI and EGEE who we're sharing a stand with. One coffee break in, and we've already had lots of interest from delegates about what we do and how we're able to collaborate with others to share the benefits of grid technologies. Add to that a varied conference programme and the fact we're in Istanbul, and it looks like it's going to be an interesting and fruitful three days.
