F2F meeting

ECAS Webinar StuMeTa

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 - 13:00 to 15:00

Ein erlernen ein Basiswissen, mit dem man hands-on eine Klimadatenanalyse durchführen kann. Wir werden ein paar Befehle kennen lernen, die die neuste Technik in einer modernen Programmiersprache wiederspiegelt. Wir werden die neusten Ergebnisse von den "intercomparisons"-Simulationsexperimenten, CMIP6, untersuchen und diese mit "historischen Daten" vergleichen. Das alles geschieht im Rahmen von ECAS, dem ENES Climate Analytics Service.

GBIF.ES Workshop: Use and management of the GBIF global and national portals

Tuesday, January 21, 2020 - 09:00 to 14:00

This theoretical and practical workshop will focus on explaining how to use the GBIF.ES National Data Portal, supported by guided exercises on its main functionalities. A space will also be left to explore the GBIF International Biodiversity Data Portal (www.gbif.org).

FitSM Foundation Training (EOSC Symposium co-location)

Thursday, November 28, 2019 - 12:45 to Friday, November 29, 2019 - 18:15

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.

FitSM is the reference framework being used in both EOSC-hub and EOSCpilot projects, among other research infrastructures as well. Through FitSM, the EOSC-hub project aims at conducting effective IT service management in the EOSC federated environment and achieving a baseline level of ITSM that can act in support of ‘management interoperability’ in federated environments from EOSC related projects (e.g. EOSC-Nordic).  

In addition, participants have an opportunity to receive a formal certification backed by certification authority APMG for anyone successfully passing the exam (20 multiple choice questions, 13 required to pass). Both the costs of the training and the exam is covered and offered by the EOSC-hub project for free.

The training is co-located with the EOSC Symposium taking place on 26-28 November 2019 and limits the overlap with the kickoff meeting programme.

EPOS Seismology Meeting 2019

Monday, May 6, 2019 - 12:00 to Wednesday, May 8, 2019 - 15:00

With 15 beneficiaries and 3 associate partners, WP8, EPOS TCS Seismology is the largest work-package in the EPOS-IP project.

This, together with the agreed structure of EPOS Seismology along the three pillars 'waveform services', 'seismological products', and 'hazard and risk services' resulted in a rather compartmentalized organization of the work within the pillars.

After the WP8 kick-off in January 2016, the 2nd and likely final full meeting of WP8 will now happen in Potsdam, Germany, hosted by GFZ, during 6-8 May 2019.

 

Disaster Mitigation WG Meeting@APAN47

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 - 15:30 to 17:00

Status update and discussion about regarding to those case studies conducted by DMCC+ and UND projects together with APAN will be investigated. Plan for the Collaboration of DMWG and AgWG will be examined according to the jointly sessions beforehand. Activities of DMWG in future APAN meetings will be also included.

Building the EPOS-ORFEUS Competence Center in EOSC-hub

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 09:00

The EOSC-hub project (https://eosc-hub.eu/) brings together multiple service providers to create the Hub – an integration and management system of the future European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The Hub can be seen as an access and delivery channel for services, software and data provided by e-Infrastructures and research communities
across Europe.

In the context of the EOSC-hub project the seismological community of the European Plate Observing System (EPOS), represented by ORFEUS, has the task to build the EPOS-ORFEUS Competence Centre (CC).

The EPOS-ORFEUS CC empowers users by establishing an enhanced service platform for seismological research. Data centres can define and share data management policies. Secure access to data and compute resources underpins users’ services. Researchers can discover data from seismological repositories and initiate staging onto
computational platforms. They can encode analysis methods into components, deploy and execute them close to data.

The platform integrates services from the EOSC-hub catalogue (www.eosc-hub.eu/catalogue) with community services (e.g. FDSN Dataselect, FDSN Station, EIDA WFCatalog).
The EPOS-ORFEUS CC focuses on four main use cases and aims to:

  • Establish a federated Authentication Authorisation Infrastructure – this activity has already produced a system to manage authentication and authorisation of ORFEUS-EIDA users and it is integrated in the operational data services (e.g. FDSN Dataselect).
  • Offer effective ways to stage data conveniently onto compute facilities – it relies on persistent identifiers (PIDs) and domain-specific metadata catalogues (EIDA WFCatalog).
  • Enable user-defined data analysis in the cloud – e.g. by means of Jupyter Notebooks deployed in proximity of data.
  • Promote and support shared policies for data management – it provides mechanisms to define and share best practices and data management policies.

 

FitSM Foundation Training at Espoo

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

Monday, October 21, 2019 - 09:00 to Thursday, October 24, 2019 - 18:00

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.
