Recently, several EU FP7 programs have been started or are being started, which will have strong influence on IT user infrastructure at the European large facilities and the way experiments are performed at these facilities. They will affect a wide range of actions, such as user data policy, user identification, data continuum, to mention a few. In these programs, mainly facility people are involved. In order to be as efficient and useful as possible, however, information of and feedback from the facility users is essential.
