The MPI-Kicktart Virtual Organization brings together sites and users inetrested in improving MPI reliability across EGI. It is closely associated with EGI's MPI VT (Virtual Team, https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/VT_MPI_within_EGI (EGI SSO account required to access))
The VO's resources are intended primarily for testing/running MPI jobs. Users must accept that before the configuration of resources (namely wrt. MPI capabilities) stabilizes, the environment may not me stable. RULES
Your acceptance of these facts is a requirement for access to MPI VO resources. If you do not agree with them your registration process can not succeed properly.
Generallly speaking any person working in academic environment is a suitable candidate for obtaining an account at MPI. Concerning the fact that work in a distributed grid environment requires secure access to resources it is necessary to obtain a valid personal certificate from an internationally accepted certification authority for proper utilization of provided computational infrastructure.
If you are a person interested in utilization of MPI resources, please visit and fill in MPI registration form (using a browser with your personal certificate loaded in the browser).
