Introduction to Jupyter and Open Science - Training

Friday, September 27, 2019 - 09:00 to 18:00

EGI Notebooks is a new service from the EGI e-infrastructure collaboration, providing a user-friendly and highly flexible Jupyter-based web environment for researchers to develop and execute data analysis and visualisation ‘notebooks’. Notebooks can contain programming codes in various languages, HTML scripts, dynamic visualization and equations as well as images and explanatory text to provide guidance and context for the data analysis. Through notebooks users can easily share concepts, ideas and working applications, capturing the full analytical methodology, connections to data and descriptive text to interpret those data. With the Binder ‘extension’ of Jupyter one can turn a Github repository with Jupyter notebooks into an executable environment, making code, visualisation and documentation immediately reproducible and reusable by anyone, anywhere. Jupyter and Binder are becoming pillars for Open Science. 

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

EGI Jupyter Notebooks Tutorial @ ISGC 2019

Tuesday, April 2, 2019 - 11:15 to 17:30

EGI Notebooks is a new service from the EGI e-infrastructure collaboration, providing a user-friendly and highly flexible Jupyter-based hosted environment for researchers to develop and share data analysis and visualisation ‘notebooks’. Notebooks can contain programming codes in various languages, HTML scripts, dynamic visualization and equations as well as images and explanatory text that provide guidance and context for the captured data analysis workflows. Through the notebooks users can easily share concepts, ideas and working applications, containing the full analytical methodology, connections to data sources, visualizations, and descriptive text to interpret those data. With the Binder ‘extension’ of Jupyter one can turn a Github repository with Jupyter notebooks into an executable environment, making code, visualisation and documentation immediately reproducible and reusable by anyone, anywhere. Jupyter and Binder are becoming pillars for Open Science.

OpenAIRE - EOSC-hub webinar “Data Privacy and Sensitive Data Services”

Thursday, December 6, 2018 - 14:00

The need for professionally managing sensitive data is growing in science, therefore we invite you to join our webinar on good practices, tips & tricks, as well as cloud-based services for researchers.

Presenters:

  • Iryna Kuchma (OpenAIRE) and Gergely Sipos (EOSC-Hub, EGI Foundation) will introduce the projects
  • Elli Papadopoulou (OpenAIRE) will speak about Data Privacy
  • Abdulrahman Azab (EOSC-Hub, University of Oslo) will talk about Sensitive Data Services. 

 

NGSchool 2018

Sunday, September 16, 2018 - 09:00 to Sunday, September 23, 2018 - 17:00

#NGSchool (Next Generation School) is a platform to share the expertise in the field of Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis and general Bioinformatics. Our aim is to deepen and broaden knowledge and skills in Bioinformatics of all participants. Our activities are dedicated to young researchers with at least basic background in biology/math/informatics that are willing to improve their Bioinformatics and NGS data analysis skills. We select participants primarily from less developed countries such as Central & Eastern European Countries.

So far we have organised 3 summer schools and co-organised number of local and satellite eventsSummer School in Bioinformatics & NGS Data Analysis is our flagship annual event. It connect experts and early stage researchers working with NGS data, in order to exchange their expertise and learn one from another. In addition, starting from 2018, we started organising number of local events.

Why is it important?

We are living in very fascinating moment in the history, so-called Genomics Era, when obtaining the whole genome sequence of any individual becomes trivial task at affordable cost. Personalised medicine, a health-care system in which medical decisions and health-care products are tailored for the individuals based on their predicted response or risk of disease, is just around the corner. It is crucial to train the future experts, that will drive this revolution also in our region.

How many users does usually partecipate?

Our events are attended by 20-70 people, majority of those are PhD students and Post-docs, but researchers at all career stages are welcome! Summer schools usually welcome 40-60 people, of those 1/3 are speakers. For example, #NGSchool2018 will be attended by 60-70 participants including 20-30 speakers/hackathon mentors.

 

 

SOSC 2018 - Second International PhD School on Open Science Cloud

Monday, September 17, 2018 - 08:00 to Friday, September 21, 2018 - 18:10

The 2018 school is devoted to "Predictive Models" and, as the previous edition, will consist of a serie of lectures, seminars and hands-on sessions on several interconnected topics, as:

  • The world of Big Data 
  • ​Data acquisition, managing and handling 
  • Machine and Deep Learning 
  • Computing models and data analysis 
  • Cloud Infrastructures 
  • ML Research to Business 

More in details, Data Management will be explored in terms of the full potential for Cloud paradigma exploitation especially from the infrastructural point of view, presenting the state of the art, contemporary issues and challenges for future. Few realistic examples will be used to drive the discussion: Big Data and high throughput requests, streaming and security. Machine Learning will be also discussed in terms of Predictive Models, investigating specific data structures for ML technologies. 
The school is organised to serve scientific communities: High Energy Physics, Material Simulation, Meteorological and Environmental studies, etc.

Towards cultural change in data management - data stewardship in practice

Thursday, May 24, 2018 - 09:30 to 18:00

About the workshop​

During this event, we will explore these issues. First, Danny Kingsley from the University of Cambridge will speak about research integrity and research reproducibility as the drivers for better data stewardship practices. This will be followed by case studies from TU Delft and from other organisations about the practical implementation of data stewardship. Subsequently, participants will be invited to take part in smaller focus groups and workshops on the topic. Finally, Kim Huijpen from the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) will speak about rewarding researchers for doing quality research.

Who should come?

  • Research support staff caring about embedding good data management practices
  • Researchers interested in hearing about the benefits of good data management
  • Senior administrative staff
