IDGF Booth and Tutorial put Crowd computing on the map at EGI CF in Helsinki

The IDGF booth proved to be a tremendous success at EGI CF 2014. Each day of the event, we counted many visitors with heavy interest in the CloudCase. Many a picture has been taken of this Cloud-in-a-briefcase and quite a lot of in-depth questions had to be answered. The poster with Alexandre Bonvin made people stop and wonder. The IDGF Road Map samples were intesively studied and many flyers were handed out.

           

The 20th IDGF Tutorial and Workshop, scheduled on May 19, attracted about two dozen participants. The slides and video recordings of all speakers are available at http://desktopgridfederation.org/programme20

  

We also interviewed Yuliya Fetyukova and Péter Ittzés from BioVeL on the use of Crowd computing to study biodiversity. The video is available at http://vimeo.com/96805375
