In the morning we will have three semi-structured discussions. (See topics below.) These will have a small panel with three to 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 discussion 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.

Time Event
9:30 - 10:15 Discussion: Condor & Computing Infrastructure
A discussion around deploying Condor in a large dedicated cluster, but the discussion won't be limited to just Condor. How do you design your data center? (Network, power, cooling, computers...)
