DIRAC services for EGI users

Friday, October 23, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

DIRAC is a complete framework for building distributed computing systems of any level of complexity. Initially developed for the LHCb High Energy Physics experiment at the LHC collider at CERN, the framework was generalized for the use by multiple scientific communities in various domains. Services based on the DIRAC software are offered by several grid infrastructure projects such as France-Grilles or GridPP/UK. Since 2014, the DIRAC services have also been provided for the EGI users. 

Cloud Concepts and Open Source Solutions

Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 09:00 to Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 09:36

Introduce the DODAS EOSC-hub Thematic Service to the Lebanon researchers

II GBIF.ES online workshop: Management, visualization and analysis of ecological data using R software (beginner level)

Tuesday, October 6, 2020 - 09:00 to Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 16:00

This course aims to lay the foundations to use and develop R in an autonomous way and to use the software to manage, manipulate, visualize and analyze ecology and biodiversity data. Special emphasis is placed on those tools that make it possible to be an efficient user of the program.

The workshop is part of the program of specialization courses of the Higher Council for Scientific Research, which will issue a certificate of use for those students who exceed the objectives set.

Structural and biophysical methods for biological macromolecules in solution

Wednesday, October 14, 2020 - 09:00 to Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 19:00

Structural methods applicable to solutions facilitate structural and functional studies on biological macromolecules under close to native conditions. Fully exploiting this opportunity allows one to extract the maximum amount of biologically meaningful information and to relate the structural results to the function of the system. The main objective of this EMBO course is to train graduate students and postdocs in state-of-the-art methods to study biological macromolecules in solution. We aim at a comprehensive coverage of the major structural and biophysical techniques employed for characterization of high and low resolution structure and structural transitions, macromolecular complex formation, protein folding, stability, interactions and enzymatic mechanisms.

Integrative modeling of biomolecular complexes

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 - 08:00 to 18:00

2020 Virtual NMR Symposium

CernVM-FS for Containers

Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

Delivering complex software stacks across a worldwide distributed system is a challenge in high-throughput scientific computing. The global-scale virtual file system CernVM-FS distributes more than a billion software binaries to hundreds of thousands of machines around the world.

EOSC-hub Technical Architecture

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

This webinar will describe the EOSC-hub proposal for a Technical Architecture for EOSC. The proposed architecture is based on the concepts of service composability and interoperability and aims to facilitate access to services, lower barriers to address complex digital needs, integrate data and services from multiple suppliers, support FAIR data and enable cross-infrastructure interoperability.

The architecture includes functions, interfaces, APIs and standards as technical concepts, with the final aim of fostering interoperability and, ultimately, service composability. It is
based on the concept of individual building blocks usable in fulfilling functions. Each building block is specified with the definition of a technical and interoperability specification that includes an high-level architecture, suggested EOSC standards and APIs and interoperability guidelines. Example of technical and interoperability specifications will be presented during the webinar.

Integrative modeling of biomolecular complexes

Monday, October 7, 2019 - 12:00 to Thursday, October 8, 2020 - 12:00

The symposium aims at presenting examples of synergies between modelling, computational and experimental approaches for the understanding of the molecular mechanisms in life sciences.

The Fundamentals of Growth Marketing

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

Building products isn’t enough. Marketing channels are saturated. Rapid Experimentation and Growth Marketing skills help you beat the competition and keep growing!

Growth comes from a mix of behavioural psychology, coding, creative marketing and data analysis. 

Having spent the last couple of years building, coaching and training regiments of growth teams and growth marketers, in this talk we’ll run you through some of the latest stories, learnings and tricks we’ve learned along the way.
