The vision for SURAgrid is to meet diverse users' needs through access 
to a rich set of
distributed capabilities, including user-contributed resources 
(computational and other),
corporate partnerships, project-specific environments, HPC access, and 
gateways to national
cyberinfrastructure (CI) such as the Teragrid."

This talk will begin at 3:30 pm in CASCI in Bldg. 74 in the first floor 
lab area.
It will also be broadcast over the Access Grid in the RIT Venue under 
the ANL Venue Server.
