Colleagues and Friends,

I am happy to announce that the SC Global Preliminary Program has been posted on the SC03 web site, linked in from:


SC Global 2003 will feature presentations by speakers from 16 remote locations representing 7 countries plus 5 sovereign tribal nations, distributed across 4 continents. We will link the Phoenix Civic Plaza Convention Center with additional Access Grid nodes worldwide throughout the course of this three-day event.

SC Global strongly encourages participating nodes to use version 2 of AG Toolkit (AGTk) software, in order to most fully participate in all SC Global sessions. We will run AGTk 2.x on the conference node in Phoenix, and the SC Global Venues will be built on an AGTk 2.x Virtual Venues Server. We will also use software provided by inSORS, and resources provided by Internet2, to record the sessions for later playback.

Argonne National Laboratory will hold a tutorial about AG 2.x in early September, organized primarily for SC Global participating sites; details will be posted at www.accessgrid.org as they become available. I hope to see you at this tutorial.

Detailed information about SC Global, including how to participate as a remote site, is available at:
