Past Training Events

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.

Open Science and Research Results Exploitation: friends or foes?

Friday, November 29, 2019 - 14:00

Have questions about Open Data, Open Science and research results exploitation? Join this OpenAIRE and EOSC-hub webinar that will cover Horizon 2020 rules and good practices approaches to addressing these issues in Consortium Agreements and Data Management Plans.

Istanziazione e utilizzo di batch system on demand su infrastrutture cloud.

Monday, November 25, 2019 - 14:00 to Thursday, November 28, 2019 - 12:30

Il corso avrà l'obiettivo di fornire dettagli su come istanziare in maniera automatizzata clusters per l'orchestrazione di container che implementano a loro volta un batch system a servizio. Verrà illustrato principalmente il caso di un sistema di batch basato su HTCondor, dando pero' esempi anche di piattaforme Spark per il training di Machine Learning.

Il corso fornirà gli strumenti di alto livello per l'utilizzo di infastrutture cloud finalizzato al processamento di dataset. In tal senso verranno mostrati strumenti per la gestione delle applicazioni (container), per la gestione del software (cvmfs) e dei dati (e.g. xrootd). Sarà inoltre mostrato concretamente l'esempio del workflow di data anlaisi dell’esperimento AMS, come pilota nell'utilizzo dei batch system a servizio.

Il corso si terrà presso la  Sezione INFN di Perugia, con inizio alle ore 14.00 del 25 Novembre e termine alle ore 13.00 circa del 28 Novembre 2019.

EMBO practical course on Practical Integrative Structural Biology

Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 17:00 to Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 22:00

Characterizing the structure of macromolecular complexes is crucial for understanding their function. For many complexes, however, solving their structure using a single structural biology technique is very challenging. Integrative structural biology combines different experimental techniques with computational modeling to build structural models of such challenging complexes.

Application of integrative structural biology requires an in-depth understanding of both different experimental approaches and computational modeling. To provide advanced training in such a highly interdisciplinary skill set, this EMBO Practical Course will teach how to interpret data from major structural biology techniques and how to integrate this data using computational methods. The course location at the Hamburg Unit of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory and the Center for Structural Systems Biology on the DESY campus will provide on-site synchrotron SAXS and MX beamlines for training. Hands-on practicals will use a well-studied model system, for which data from all main structural biology techniques are available.
