FitSM Foundation Training at Espoo

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - 12:30 to Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - 13:00

IT Service Management is a discipline that helps provide services with a focus on customer needs and in a professional manner. It is widely used in the commercial and public sectors to manage IT services of all types, but current solutions are very heavyweight with high barriers to entry.

FitSM is an open, lightweight standard for professionally managing services. It brings order and traceability to a complex area and provides simple, practical support in getting started with ITSM. FitSM training and certification provide crucial help in delivering services and improving their management. It provides a common conceptual and process model, sets out straightforward and realistic requirements and links them to supporting materials.

The training is co-located with the EOSC-Nordic project kickoff meeting taking place on 2-3 September 2019, ensuring no overlap with the kickoff meeting programme.

This one-day (2x half day) Foundation level course provides an agnostic introduction to the basic IT service management concepts and terms, outlines the purpose and structure of FitSM standards and their relationship to other standards, and details the formal requirements defined within it.

MedCoast conference: Presentation/hands-on session

The MEDCOAST congress in Marmaris (Turkey) is the fourteenth event of the biennial series that was started in 1993 for contributing to coastal and marine sciences, engineering, management and conservation particularly in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.  Since the first event in 1993 (Antalya, Turkey), the MEDCOAST congress series have travelled around the Mediterranean and the Black Sea coasts, visiting Taragona (Spain), Qawra (Malta), Antalya (Turkey), Hammamet (Tunisia), Ravenna (Italy), Kusadasi (Turkey), Alexandria (Egypt), Sochi (Russia), Rhodes (Greece), Marmaris (Turkey) Varna (Bulgaria) and Mellieha (Malta).  The congress has been regularly organized in every odd numbered year, in the months of either October or November. 

Target audience: coastal authorities, end users and researchers from any country.

How to apply bioinformatics to metallo-proteins

Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - 09:00 to Friday, February 15, 2019 - 18:00

As part of the periodic National School for Bioinorganic Chemists organized by the Italian Chemical Society, the present activity aims at training PhD students and post-doctoral fellows in the use of advanced computational methods for the investigation of metal-binding biological systems. In particular, the use of on-line database resources in conjunction with state-of-the-art software for the simulation of the structure and dynamics of metal-binding proteins is addressed.

ELIXIR - EXCELERATE All Hands meeting 2019

Monday, June 17, 2019 - 09:00 to Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 13:00

The meeting brings together members of the ELIXIR community from across the ELIXIR Nodes, and collaborators from partner organisations, in order to review ELIXIR’s achievements and activities so far and discuss plans for the future.

The All Hands meeting is also the venue for the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Annual General Assembly Meeting.

Course offered for the PhD program in Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Curriculum in Wind Science and Engineering A.Y. (2018/2019) (XXXIV cycle)

Information technology has become an essential ingredient in most of research fields. The variety and amount of data to acquire, process and understand in fact has significantly increased, and the typical desktop is no longer sufficient. Even more, large collaborations are necessary to carry out research, involving complex logistics for handling distributed data collection, analysis and management. It is therefore clear that new approaches (computer architectures, software and methodologies) are needed to enhance the scientific research. eScience studies, enacts, and improves the ongoing process of innovation in computationallyintensive or data-intensive research methods; typically, this is carried out collaboratively, often using distributed infrastructure. eScience encompasses all fields of research and addresses all stages of the research lifecycle, from formulation of the research questions, through large scale simulations and data analytics, scientific discovery, up to long-term sharing, reusing, and reapplying of the results, data as well as the relevant tools, processes and knowledge.

CODATA-RDA 2019

Monday, August 5, 2019 - 09:00 to Friday, August 16, 2019 - 13:00

The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School provides training in the foundational skills of Research Data Science.  Contemporary research – particularly when addressing the most significant, transdisciplinary research challenges – cannot be done effectively without a range of skills relating to data. This includes the principles and practice of Open Science and research data management and curation, the use of a range of data platforms and infrastructures, large scale analysis, statistics, visualisation and modelling techniques, software development and annotation and more. We define ‘Research Data Science’ as the ensemble of these skills.

The material covered here is fundamental to all areas of Data Science and hence open to researchers from all disciplines that deal with significant amounts of data. The focus is provide a practical introduction to these topics with extensive labs and seminars.

TOPICS:

  • Open Science
  • Introduction to Unix Shell
  • Programming for Analysis
  • Git
  • Research Data Management
  • Author Carpentry
  • Data Visualisation
  • Information Security
  • Machine Learning
  • Computational Infrastructures

EBI Hinxton - Joint Instruct-ERIC/CAPRI Workshop on Integrated Modelling of Protein-Protein Interactions

Monday, April 1, 2019 - 08:30 to Tuesday, April 2, 2019 - 16:30

CAPRI (Critical Assessment of Predicted Interactions) is a community wide experiment designed to test methods for predicting the structure of macromolecular complexes based on the known structure of their components.

The meeting program will include an overview of the performance of protein docking and scoring procedures obtained for targets evaluated since the spring of 2013. It will also feature several plenary lectures by prominent scientists, as well as talks by the best CAPRI performers, and/or groups developing innovative computational approaches. CAPRI groups selected for oral representations will be notified, once the predictions for all outstanding targets have been completed.

Get the latest update on the current status of computational procedures for modeling protein-protein interactions and the association of proteins with other macromolecules from this 7th CAPRI evaluation meeting. For more information - http://www.ebi.ac.uk/msd-srv/capri/
