First Session...

Today, we held our first talk session thanks to Rob Gardner.
I have to mention that this event is been held and sponsored by different organizations and institutions such as Colciencias, Universidad de los Andes, Universidad Javeriana and OSG, of course.
In this talk, Rob gave an overview about Grid Computing and the outline of that two week workshop.
He mentioned, during the first week, we'll have many theoretical sessions given by important members of the OSG community. They'll present projects on different areas such as applications and system.
The second week will have a different emphasis, mainly directed toward practical work. As Rob mentioned, never before a practical session in which 25 'virgin' computers will become part of a grid environment has been carried out. So, that will be very exciting.
