The SDSC SRB Workshop will provide a forum for SRB user community researchers and practitioners to share their knowledge, experiences, and solutions in utilizing this technology, to gain additional insight into SRB configurations, techniques, and options, and to provide feedback to, and hear of future development plans from, the SRB team. It will be held February 2nd and 3rd at SDSC in San Diego.
This is intended for both new and experienced users of SDSC SRB, although most of the discussion will be oriented toward advanced topics.
This workshop will run for one and a half days: all day Thursday Februray 2nd and in the morning on Friday February 3rd, at the San Diego Supercomputer Center on the campus of the University of California at San Diego. There will be no conference fee, but you will need to cover your travel and lodging expenses. If we hold a conference dinner, there may be some fee required.
If you are planning to attend, please register as soon as possible, via the registration form. This will help us know what presentations are being prepared, how many people will be attending, and what your primary interests are.

This workshop will provide a forum for SRB user community researchers and practitioners to share their knowledge, experiences, and solutions in utilizing this technology, to gain additional insight into SRB configurations, techniques, and options, and to provide feedback to and hear of future development plans from the SRB team.
We are soliciting papers on topics including, but not limited to, the following:
- New SRB interfaces and drivers being developed. Examples include Java GUIs, file systems, MPI-IO, portlets, DSpace, and Fedora.
- SRB data management architectures. Applications of SRB technology as data grid, digital library, persistent archive, and real-time sensor data collections; configuration choices made, their strengths and weaknesses.
- SRB federation approaches. Examples include a master-slave federation for two data grids to serve as a central repository and backup archive, with other data grids participating as peer-to-peer zones.
- Other technologies utilizing or integrated with SRB. Examples include: HDF (V5), ORB, Request Tracker, Kepler actors, and Matrix.
Papers should be about five pages in length and will be published collectively as "Applications of the SRB Storage Resource Broker". (Format and schedule will be decided shortly.)
All papers will be presented at the workshop as 10 to 20 minute talks.
