As introduction, it appeared to be appropriate to welcome everyone and mentionning the specificities of this time around agenda : - The session contained talks from non-STAR members. Kensheng Wu came to talk to us about his GridCollector work, a Grid inspired front-edge technology tool in development as a collaborative effort between STAR and the SDM (Scientific Data Management) Computer Science group and as part of our PPDG Collaboratory Pilot. Special thanks to Kensheng were in order. - The session contained a tutorial section. This was not done for ages. - The session was granted a day as it used to be two years ago ... - Timing wise, this Collaboration Meeting seemed appropriate to stress the importance of Grid technology. Several introductary talks were mentionned ahead.
