Title: Building PetaScale Applications and Software Environments on TeraGrid Workshop
- Foster information sharing and collaboration among people interested in supporting the effective use of petascale environments for applications in a diverse range of fields.
- To identify effective strategies for providing TeraGrid resources in support of these efforts.
- Developing mechanisms for sharing resulting software and effective strategies with the community.
- Abstracts of plans from participants for advancing petascale applications
- New and/or strengthened collaborations
- Recommendations for moving forward for all parties involved

This will be an invitation only workshop. Attached are names of people that have been determined to have a strong interest in the workshop goals. Additionally, 3-5 staff from each of the TeraGrid sites would be invited to attend.
Attendees are expected to cover all of their own travel and housing costs. Meals will be provided at the workshop.
December 11-12, 2007
Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona
Host: Dan Stanzione
Participants will be asked to complete a survey to help the planners understand the needs of the community to help shape the discussions and activities at the workshop.
Participants will be asked to prepare a one-page abstract/poster of their proposed work for sharing with all participants.
Six participants will be asked to provide 5 minute perspectives on topics of greatest interest to the participants. A few suggested topics are listed in the draft agenda below. A short Q&A session will follow the presentations.
Break-out sessions will follow to encourage further discussion among smaller groups. The break-out sessions will focus on eliciting recommendations for further action within the projects of the participants, through collaboration with one another, and through collaboration with TeraGrid.
A few individuals will be asked to facilitate the panel presentations and the discussion groups. Recorders will be assigned to capture summaries of the discussions.
