Description: 
The EGEE collaboration (Enabling Grids for EsciencE) and the international high energy physics community have been building the world's largest international eresearch infrastructure: the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid. EGEE operates a "production" infrastructure across Europe, Asia and the Americas. The EGEE grid runs up to 50,000 jobs per month from applications in diverse research disciplines including high energy physics, earth sciences, and the life sciences. An Australian node of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid has been deployed at the University of Melbourne to support the data and computing needs of Australian physicists participating in the international ATLAS experiment, based at the CERN laboratory, near Geneva, Switzerland. We will present the status and plans for the EGEE middleware, gLite, and our experiences deploying an internationally federated research infrastructure in Australia. We will also present our plans for inter-operation with the APAC National Grid program and establishment of an Australian WLCG federation.
