*IMPORTANT UPDATE*: We have now reached the maximum number of registered participants (15), so the registration has now closed. For the ones that would like to be added to the waiting list in case of a cancellation or for the next VM tutorial, you can still complete the same registration form, or contact us at: icei-pie@bsc.es.

In this tutorial, participants will get a hands-on introduction to the Pollux OpenStack service using the Horizon web interface.
