Submission Guidelines

Abstracts should provide the technical substance required for the program committee to evaluate the session’s contribution to the Globus community, without the need for further correspondence. If the presentation was given at another conference, please note the name, date, and location of the event in the submission. Abstracts for accepted submissions will be published on the GlobusWorld website and in other conference material, and made available to conference attendees.

Lightning talks will be limited to 10 minutes in length, including time for Q&A, and may be grouped by topic, depending on the number of submissions received.

We will be hosting a poster session during the evening reception on Thursday, April 21, 2016. This is a great opportunity for you to showcase research that deals with research data management utilizing Globus services. We will provide an easel and hanging clips for each poster. Presenters are responsible for printing/mounting their poster.

Please submit all questions and correspondence to outreach at
