In the early days of Globus, Ian Foster, Steve Tuecke and myself defined the Grid as being driven by:

coordinated resource sharing and problem solving in dynamic, multi-institutional virtual organizations. The sharing that we are concerned with is not primarily file exchange but rather direct access to computers, software, data, and other resources, as is required by a range of collaborative problem-solving and resource- brokering strategies emerging in industry, science, and engineering.
With the near ubiquitous accessibility of cloud infrastructure, and the proliferation of sophisticated services, it is easy to forget this initial driver behind Grid computing and Globus. In my talk, I will revisit the concept of virtual organization in terms of how collaborative, multidisciplinary teams form and work to solve challenging problems in science and engineering. I will discuss the role that socio-technical systems organized around structured data sharing can play in coordinating work. Finally, I will describe new work processes and technical infrastructure that uses Globus services that have played a critical role in accelerating discovery in diverse complex problem spaces.

13:00—14:00 break
14:00—16:00 Led by: Globus Team

The Customer Forum is an opportunity for Globus subscribers to discuss their experiences with the service, to learn about our product development plans, and to provide input on future product directions. Attendance at the customer forum is by invitation only. If you would like to represent your institution/community please contact us for an invitation.

11:00—14:30 Greg Nawrocki   |  Introduction |  CLI/Automation
Vas Vasiliadis   |  System Administration |  Platform Overview

This is a crash course in Globus for those new to the service. We will cover a variety of topics at an introdcutory level, including moving and sharing data, setting up a Globus Connect Server endpoint, using the Globus CLI to automate simple data managament tasks, and interfacing with the Globus REST API.

March 12, 2020 - In light of recent developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the related travel and meeting restrictions imposed by many of our users’ institutions, GlobusWorld 2020 will be a virtual event with an abbreviated agenda. Please register and join us for the same great content and dialogue—in a different format!
