On behalf of GARUDA - the national grid computing initiative, it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the "GARUDA-NKN Partners Meet 2012", which will be held on July 20th and 21st 2012 at NIAS Auditorium, Bangalore. This meet is jointly organized by C-DAC and NKN to bring forth collaborative initiatives in the scientific community leveraging on the enhanced power of GARUDA-NKN collaboration. We invite partners to participate as it is time now for all of us to meet, discuss the progress, share our viewpoints, case studies, and also explore future technologies and ideas for collaboration This meet will include a series of presentations and discussions focusing on development and deployment of newer technologies and applications on GARUDA with the existing partners sharing their experiences. C-DAC will ensure the local hospitality however allotment of seats and rooms will be strictly based on twin sharing accommodation and first come basis. Please also note that necessary arrangements are being made for a comfortable stay at the event venue for two members from your institute during the event dates only. We reiterate our belief that with the collaboration/partnership of premier institutions like yours, can lay the foundation for scientific experiments on an unprecedented scale. We look forward to having you with us during the meet to share your experiences and expectations on the GARUDA, National Grid Computing Initiative and the National Knowledge Network.

With Best Regards,

Dr. Subrata Chattopadhyay
Chief Investigator-GARUDA
