1 11 SZTAKI & International Desktop Grid Federation: status report József Kovács (MTA SZTAKI) IDGF-SP is supported by the FP7 Capacities Programme under contract nr RI

2 2 International Desktop Grid Federation: short introduction Legal form: Dutch foundation Main vehicle for dissemination during the lifetime of the EC funded projects and for continuation after the projects Federation is open for organisations and individuals in research and industry A member organisation with chapters and working groups Focal point for DCI/Desktop operators and application developers Webportal: discussion fora, events and workshops, support tools, etc. Provide assistance and facilities to launch new joint actions, initiatives, projects

3 3 Involve and engage in long-term significantly more citizens and new communities in the volunteer andvolunteer and private (campus-wide or enterprise) Distributed Computing Infrastructuresprivate (campus-wide or enterprise) Distributed Computing Infrastructures by supporting the (1) rapid creation, (2) efficient operation, and (3) dynamic expansion of this type of DCIs for e- Science. Coordinate and synchronise the dissemination and support activities of major European stakeholders of volunteer and Desktop Grids with focus on the International Desktop Grid Federation. IDGF-SP International Desktop Grid Federation - Support Project Supported by: EC in the FP7 Project acronym: IDGF-SP Contract n°: RI Project type: CSA-SA Start date: 01/11/2012 Duration: 24 months Funding from the EC: € Total funded effort in person-month: 136 Web site: Coordinator: Dr. Robert Lovas

In order to fill this gap; a part of the targeted objectives are technical ones but there is stronger focus on the human aspects – training, networking and support activities.In order to fill this gap; a part of the targeted objectives are technical ones but there is stronger focus on the human aspects – training, networking and support activities.
