Day 2, off and running :)

Day two has just started with a very interesting keynote given by Stefano Nativi, about the application of standards within the Earth Sciences Community. He showed how they are planning on using real grid platforms for things such as civil protection and interconnection of Earth science applications and resources.
The other 'big' news is that a location has been chosen for the EGI Host Site. in the end Amsterdam has been chosen which personally was always my favorite. This follows on from the 'workshop' yesterday where the EGI was presented to the community which included the internal structure, NGI requirements and a very hazy thing on how much it will cost everyone!
