Summer School on managing scientific data from analysis to long term archiving

Monday, September 23, 2019 - 09:00 to Friday, September 27, 2019 - 18:00

From 23-27 September 2019, EUDAT CDI and PRACE are organising a Summer School on "Managing scientific data from analysis to long term archiving". Taking place in the beautiful location of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) of Trieste (Italy), the school aims to build the foundational skills for managing and processing data within complex research environments. Starting from real use cases, the school will focus on all the steps part of a typical research data lifecycle (data discovery; data processing; data analysis; data preservation and publishing) combining frontal lessons with hands-on sessions.


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. 

SOSC 2019: Third International School on Open Science School

Monday, September 16, 2019 - 08:00 to Friday, September 20, 2019 - 19:00

The School is multi-disciplinary and targeted at postgraduate researchers including bachelor degree or equivalent in fields such as physics, statistics, computer science, computer vision, biology, medicine,engineering working at any research institute, with experience in data analysis, in computing or in related fields.

The Third School on Open Science Cloud will be held in Bologna, 16-20 September 2019 and is organised by INFN, University of Perugia and University of Bologna.

14th Silusba conference

Monday, September 16, 2019 - 09:00 to Friday, September 20, 2019 - 18:00

These Symposia have as main objectives:

  • To promote the advancement of knowledge in the fields of Hydraulics and Water Resources;
  • To promote the exchange of ideas and experiences in the fields of Hydraulics and Water Resources; 
  • To stimulate training, research and development actions of common interest. In the 14th SILUSBA we intend to enable the passage of knowledge to practice, reinforcing training and entrepreneurship, giving some institutional formality to our "Water Community".

BI/EMBL Hinxton - Structural Bioinformatics course

Monday, September 16, 2019 - 12:00 to Friday, September 20, 2019 - 03:45

Structural biology, determining the three-dimensional shapes of biomacromolecules and their complexes, can tell us a lot about how these molecules function and the roles they play within a cell. Bioinformatics data derived from structure determination experiments enables life-science researchers to address a wide variety of questions. For example, it aids the understanding of how mutations in a gene might alter a protein’s shape, disrupt a catalytic site, or alter the binding affinity of a pharmaceutical compound.

This course explores bioinformatics data resources and tools for the interpretation and exploitation of biomacromolecular structures. It will focus on how best to analyse available structural data to gain useful information given specific research contexts. The course content will investigate the impact of genetic variation on structure, predicting protein structure and function, and exploring interactions with other macromolecules as well as with low-MW compounds. Participants will also have an opportunity to explore protein docking using HADDOCK

Services to support FAIR data

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 - 09:00 to 17:00

OpenAIRERDA Europe, FAIRsFAIR and EOSC-hub are happy to announce a series of three workshops, two in April and one in September, called ‘Services to Support FAIR data’.

This is the third workshop.

The purpose of these workshops is to explore how existing infrastructures can work together and understand how to deliver services that support the creation of FAIR research outputs. The three half-day events, tailored to different audiences, will examine the scholarly and research ecosystem, what exists, what could be modified, and will give insights into optimum service provisioning. They will also be a chance to engage experts and audiences on how to turn FAIR data into reality.


OBS Data Training Course 2019

Thursday, September 5, 2019 - 09:00 to Friday, September 6, 2019 - 18:00

International training course on ocean bottom and amphibian experiment seismological data

FitSM Foundation Training at Espoo

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - 12:30 to Wednesday, September 4, 2019 - 13:00

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 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.

UND Training @MM

Monday, August 19, 2019 - 09:00 to Tuesday, August 20, 2019 - 18:30
Goal of this UND Project training is capacity building – achieving accurate impact analysis by numerical simulations learned from case studies based on deeper understanding approach

2019 International Incoherent Scatter Radar (ISR) School

Monday, August 12, 2019 - 09:00 to Saturday, August 17, 2019 - 18:00

The International EISCAT Radar School is a training course for new users of incoherent scatter radars at any stage of their research career.
The school will be held at the nature resort Pikku-Syöte, about an hour and a half east of the city of Oulu during the week immediately preceeding the 19th International EISCAT Symposium, which will be held jointly with the 46th Annual European Meeting on Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods (46AM).
