Following the success of the EuroCAMP (European Campus Architecture
Middleware Planning) workshops to promote the use of middleware
technologies in the campuses in Europe, TERENA is happy to organise a
half-day miniCAMP focused on eduroam.
The roaming infrastructure, known as eduroam, allows users visiting an
institution connected to eduroam to log on to the WLAN using the same
credentials the users would use if they were at their home institution.
To date more than 30 National Research and Education Networks are connected to eduroam in Europe and beyond.

The EUMEDGRID initiative aims to
set up in the Mediterranean a grid infrastructure for Research, which
can become part of EGEE and be integrated with analogous initiatives in
the Balkans, North Europe, Latin America and Far-East Asia.
Additionally, EUMEDGRID's purpose is to raise grid awareness and
competences among the researchers operating in the Mediterranean area,
to make them able to profit of this new powerful tool, to foster
collaboration with European and wordlwide projects and to promote
scientific and industrial development in the area.
