The School aims to create the necessary
environment in Latin America for the porting of new applications
to the EELA Grid Infrastructure. To fulfil this goal, the EGRIS-1
programme, based both on lectures and hands-on practices, will cover
in-depth the main topics of Grid technology, as well as the EGEE/EELA
The target audience will consist of researchers from EELA partners,
technical industries, research laboratories and academic universes.
The School is mainly intended for EELA members but is widely opened
to everybody. In order to maximise the didactic impact and effectiveness,
the number of applications to be ported will be limited to six.
Any application candidature must be submitted to the Selection Board
of the School by a group of at most four persons before the 13th
of October 2006. Only one application per team can be submitted.
Each application team should fill in the questionnaire available
in the EGRIS-1 web site http://www.eu-eela.org/egris1,
describing the application they want to port on the EELA e-Infrastructure.
In addition, two recommendation letters per person should be provided.
The Selection Board will rank both applications and persons for
final approval by the EELA Technical Executive Board.
Only candidates who have followed at least one of the previous EELA
Tutorials or an official training event of any other accredited
Grid Project will be considered for selection. However, candidates
who can demonstrate notorious knowledge in the field will also be
Accepted candidates will be notified at most on 27th of October
