OGSA-DAI is an extensible toolkit middleware to expose data resources to grids. These resources may be relational databases, XML-databases, or files - and extensions can be developed to permit OGSA-DAI to support additional resources (such as the Open Geospatial Consortium web services used by the geographical communities). OGSA-DAI executes workflows that access, transform and deliver data and these can minimise the need for the transfer of large amounts of data around a Grid.

This is the last of three connected events, and is led by the OGSA-DAI team of the OMII-UK project. Participants in this event will have taken part in event 1 (an introductory course) or event 2 (a web-based extension of event 1).

This is a workshop in which participants seeking to adopt OGSA-DAI will explore their requirements in depth with the OGSA-DAI team. In advance of this event participants will be asked to describe their specific intentions for using OGSA-DAI, to allow appropriate preparation to be made.


Participants should have a broad familiarity with Grid systems and have some experience of Java. It is required that participants are familiar with the content of the related earlier events, (an introductory course, http://www.nesc.ac.uk/esi/events/871/ or a web-based course, http://www.nesc.ac.uk/esi/events/873/ ).

Target Audience

Participants are likely to be developers of applications for a research commnunity to use.


This event is provisionally scheduled to start at 12:00 Wednesday 23 April 2008 and close at 15:00 on Friday 25 April 2008.


Assistance with accommodation is offered once you have registered.
