We'll be joining the European Globus Community Forum in Helsinki, which is co-located with the European Grid Infrastructure Community Forum 2014.

The EGCF annual event provides a unique opportunity for European Globus users to introduce and discuss their work, challenges, solutions, and best practices within a community atmosphere. The event also gives participants the chance to provide feedback on Globus technologies, as well as present any Globus requirements they may have for their research.

Vas Vasiliadis will be presenting updates on Globus.

GlobusWorld 2014 took place in Chicago last week and it was a great success, drawing more than 120 HPC computing experts and scientists to Argonne National Lab for the three-day event. Attendees participated in tutorials illuminating the full range of Globus capabilities, learned how different campuses are thriving with Provider Plans and Globus Plus, and heard about cutting-edge genomic research supported by Globus Genomics.

Two weeks after the discovery of the Heartbleed bug we’re still actively monitoring the situation and fixing systems that might be at risk. After updating software and certificates, we believe that our systems are no longer vulnerable to Heartbleed. We maintain a detailed list of the corrective actions we've taken in our support forum.
