In the morning we will have three semi-structured panel discussions. (See topics below.) These will have a small panel with three or four people, including at least one Condor team member. At the beginning of each session, each panel member will be given no more than five minutes (strictly enforced) to talk about their views on the discussion topic. No presentation slides will be allowed. The rest of the time will be open discussion, guided by questions from the audience. Please note: The quality of the session will be driven by questions from the audience, so please come prepared to talk and ask questions.
The afternoon discussions are much more informal—this is your chance to interact directly with Condor Team members and other conference attendees. We hope you'll take advantage of this time to ask hard questions, get help troubleshooting your installation, or just learn more about Condor.
Condor in your machine room and on your campus
A discussion about how you deploy Condor and make it available across campus. We will primarily focus on technical aspects, but social aspects (engaging users and administration) are fine topics too.
Moderator: Todd Tannenbaum
Panel: Steve Barnet (Condor Project), Ben Cotton (Purdue), Rob Rati (Red Hat), Rob Futrick (Cycle Computing)
Condor & cloud integration
A discussion on high-throughput computing, Condor, and clouds. How does it all fit together?
Moderator: Brooklin Gore
Panel: Jaime Frey (Condor Project), Jason Stowe (Cycle Computing), Matt Farrellee (Red Hat) et. al.
Condor & data
Accessing large quantities of data with Condor is a challenge for many of us. How do you deal with it? What needs to change in Condor, other software, or our environments to help us?
Moderator: Greg Thain
Panel: Zach Miller (Condor Project), Douglas Thain (Notre Dame), Brian Bockelman (University of Nebraska-Lincoln), et. al.
