The series of open e-IRG workshops support the e-IRG activities by enabling and stimulating the discussion of e-infrastructure related topics with the community across thematic and country borders. Experts on various areas will get together to explore open issues and outstanding questions for enabling easy and cost-effective shared use of distributed electronic resources across Europe and beyond, based on sustainable e-infrastructures.

On Thursday and Friday October 11th and 12th 2007 there will be an open workshop organised by the e-Infrastructure Reflection Group. The workshop will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, at the campus of LNEC (National Laboratory for Civil Engineering). The main themes of the workshop will focus on topics related to security, standards and data repositories.

The purpose of the workshop is to encourage interaction between the scientific communities and the political, advisory and monitoring levels. Based on the presentations and discussions during the workshop the e-IRG will publish Recommendations to the European Commission and national governments. The results will also be included in future versions of the e-IRG White Paper and Roadmap .
