The workshop will start in the late morning of Tuesday, May 22nd (May 21st is holiday in France) and at least the last day, of Friday 25th will be fully dedicated to hacking sessions, and Q&A.

The workshop will be devoted to information exchange between DIRAC developers, service administrators and users. New users, as well as experienced administrators and developers are welcome in the workshop.

As for previous years, communities will be asked to report about their use of DIRAC. Tutorials on administration and development, as well as a public hacking session will be part of the program.

As always, we encourage everybody to suggest items to the workshop agenda.
