Developing Applications for GARUDA (DAG 07) 4th-6th October @ JNU, New Delhi

N. Mohan Ram
Director, C-DAC Bangalore

Friday, August 24, 2007

Dear GARUDA Partner,

C-DAC welcomes you to the 3rd workshop on Developing Applications for GARUDA (DAG 07), being held at JNU New Delhi from 4th to 6th October 2007.You may recall that the first DAG 07 workshop was held at Bangalore on 12th and 13th of March 2007 and the Second workshop in the series was held at IIT Bombay on 28th- 30th of June 2007. Based on popular demand and feed back from the participants of the earlier workshops, we have now scheduled the third in the DAG07 series at New Delhi.

The workshop agenda includes a series of tutorials, presentations and hands-on sessions focusing on the usage of various supported tools and technologies required for applications development on GARUDA. The three-day programme is specifically targeted for both new grid users as well as users who wish to use advanced grid techniques to exploit the power of GARUDA for their applications.

Participation is free of charge for GARUDA Partners and a nominal fee will be charged for others. We also look forward to your feedback on the given tentative agenda so that the sessions can be customized to make the programme more effective.

This letter is sent in advance to help you block your dates amidst your pressing schedules and make necessary travel arrangements for the workshop. We would also very much appreciate if you could circulate this information among the application developers and researchers of your institute.

If you have any query or are in need of additional information, please contact Dr.Prahlada Rao ( or Savitha Gowda (

We look forward to seeing you in New Delhi.

With best wishes,

N. Mohanram
