iRODS User Group Meeting 2015

June 10–11, 2015

iRods logo

The iRODS User Group Meeting is an annual opportunity for iRODS users, Consortium members, and staff to discuss iRODS-enabled applications and discoveries, technologies developed around iRODS, and future development and sustainability of iRODS and the iRODS Consortium. The meeting will feature over twenty presentations from the user community and the core development team, including use-case presentations, live demonstations, and open discussions about requested iRODS features. There is an anticipated audience of between 75 and 100 participants, representing dozens of academic, government, and commercial institutions.

This year, the iRODS Consortium will provide an optional one-day training session on Tuesday, June 9, 2015. This course will be an opportunity for users to get familiar with the newest version of iRODS. Students will graduate from the course with their own running deployment of iRODS, configured for a real-world use case, as well as the knowledge to build upon the installation.
