FitSM Advanced SOC - Service Operation and Control

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 14:00 to Friday, June 21, 2019 - 14:00

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 a lightweight approach to 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 provides crucial help in providing 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.

This two-day Advanced level course aims to provide individuals with deeper knowledge of the ITSM processes focusing on service operation and control.

The EOSC-hub Digital Innovation Hub: open data services for biomedicine and business

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - 11:11

An increasingly important part of computational biomedicine workflows is the sharing, processing and publishing of datasets. The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) aims to provide a virtual environment with open and seamless services for storage, management, analysis and re-use of research data. This webinar will introduce the EOSC Digital Innovation Hub (DIH), which provides the primary mechanism for private organisations (start-ups, SMEs, large industry) to engage with the EOSC. Industrial participation is a key part of the remit of Centres of Excellence, such as CompBioMed, therefore we will describe how the DIH can provide them with advanced compute, storage, and data management services alongside expertise and dedicated support. Concrete examples of what can be achieved will be presented from six business pilots running within the EOSC DIH. The webinar will conclude with a call for participation to extend engagement with other research communities with ties to industry, SMEs and other DIHs (regional, European).

LOFAR Science 2019

Monday, May 20, 2019 - 11:00 to Thursday, May 23, 2019 - 12:30

The meeting will comprise 3 events:

  • The 2019 LOFAR Users Meeting - 20 May (11:00 – 18:00). Open to the whole LOFAR community and organized by the Radio Observatory, the Users Meeting is aimed at wide-ranging dialogue with the full LOFAR community, and is intended to bring together members of the Key Science Projects (KSPs), researchers with approved LOFAR projects, as well as any potential LOFAR users. ASTRON RO staff will demonstrate the current status of the LOFAR instrument and summarize plans for future development of software and procedures. For the users, this meeting represents an important forum for discussion, where they will have the opportunity to give their feedback on LOFAR operations and development, and highlight, when required, the need for improvement or change.
  • The 2019 LOFAR Community Science Workshop - 21-22 May (2 full days). This workshop aims to bring together all active LOFAR users, including members of the Key Science Project teams as well as any other researchers from the European and global community involved with, or interested in, LOFAR science. It will feature a wide range of talks on exciting new scientific results from the Cycle observing programs. The workshop program will cover the gamut of the LOFAR science case from cosmology and extragalactic research to galactic, planetary, and solar system topics. Special emphasis will be given in the program to younger members of the collaboration to allow them a chance to showcase their results.
  • LOFAR 2.0 discussion - 23 May (9:00 – 12:30). During this session, the plans for the LOFAR upgrade will be presented and discussed in detail with the community of users.

Software Citation workshop panel session voting data

Wednesday, May 22, 2019 - 09:00

This data was captured from an interactive panel discussion session at the Software Citation workshop at the British Library on Monday 13 June.
Mentimeter allows export of raw voting data, so we are making this available to supplement the workshop outputs.

There are two files:

  • Software Citation Workshop Panel.pdf is the slides presented at the workshop, which gives the questions used.
  • Software-Citation-Workshop-Panel-Cleaned.xlsx includes the (anonymous) raw data (with test data removed) and simple visualisations of the results.

Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom: Software citation as incentive mechanism design

Monday, May 20, 2019 - 13:32

Academia is a reputation economy: careers succeed or fail based on a shared perception of the scale of contributions. The Alan Turing Institute is a research institute with a mission both to contribute to scholarship, and to deliver real-world economic and social impact, much of which is realised in software.

Put a pin in it - Software and specimen citation in the natural sciences

Thursday, May 16, 2019 - 13:35

This presentation gives an overview of some of the Natural History Museum's (NHM) current software citation practices as well as an introduction to the many challenges currently being tackled in trying to identify and then provide citations for evolving species and specimens within the NHM's collections.

The EC3 portal in the EGI Applications on Demand service: how to create virtual elastic clusters on the EGI Federation

Thursday, May 16, 2019 - 10:00 to 11:00

EC3 (Elastic Cloud Computing Cluster) is a tool to deploy virtual elastic clusters over multi-clouds. It is a web tool that facilitates the access to Cloud computing platforms to non-experienced users. A virtual cluster can be deployed with a few clicks. It maintains the “traditional” work environment: clusters configured with a LRMS (SLURM, SGE, Kubernetes, etc.) and scientific applications (Galaxy, NAMD, etc.).

EC3 provides automated elasticity management. Working nodes are added or removed depending on the workload of the cluster without any user intervention and it supports a wide range of cloud providers (public, federated and on-premises) including EGI FedCloud.
