Past Training Events

FitSM Foundation Training (EGI Conference 2019)

Thursday, May 9, 2019 - 08:30 to 17:30

This is one-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.

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 a federated environment and achieving a baseline level of ITSM that can act in support of ‘management interoperability’ in federated environments where disparate organisations must cooperate to manage services.

Service Security Challenge 2019 - Forensics and debrief

Tuesday, May 7, 2019 - 09:00 to Wednesday, May 8, 2019 - 10:30

 

The Security Workshop at the EGI Conference 2019 will address aspects of the recent Service Security Challenge run against the EGI infrastructure, SSC-19.03. The intended audience for the workshop includes system administrators and security contacts, as well as FedCloud users operating services connected to the internet.

Jupyterhub Deployment - hands-on training

Monday, May 6, 2019 - 15:30 to 17:30

Jupyter provides a powerful environment for expressing research ideas as notebooks, where code, test and visualizations are easily combined together on an interactive web-frontend. JupyterHub allows to deploy a multi-user service where users can store and run their own notebooks without the need of installing anything on their computers. This is the technology behind the EGI Notebooks service and other similar Jupyter-based services for research.

Services to support FAIR data

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 - 13:00 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 second 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.

 

EOSC-hub Data Platforms for data processing and solutions for publishing and archiving scientific data - PART II

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 11:00 to 12:30

The main objective of this session is to demonstrate how end-users can perform data analysis on large volume of datasets, and produce reusable results following the FAIR principles. During this training track, the latest features of the EGI DataHub, including the interoperability with the EGI Jupyter Notebooks and the EUDAT B2Handle and B2Find services, will be also introduced.

Training on the EOSC-hub AAI: the service provider perspective

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 11:00 to 12:30

This training session will provide an overview of the various integration workflows in support of resource providers’ needs for federated access through the EOSC-hub AAI. These workflows build on standards and open technologies, including SAML 2.0, OpenID Connect, and OAuth 2.0, in order to support the integration of web-based services. The session will also cover more advanced workflows for addressing non-web-based access use cases (e.g. command line and API). In this context techniques for obtaining credentials on behalf of the end-user using OAuth tokens and X509 proxy certificates through online authorities will be presented.

Services to Support FAIR Data: from theory to implementation

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 09:00 to 12:30

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

This is the first workshop.

Workshop 1 Services to Support FAIR Data: from theory to implementation

12 April 2019, Prague (Czech Republic)

Workshop 2: Services to support FAIR data

4 April 2019, Vienna (Austria)

Workshop 3: Open Science FAIR 

17 September 2019, Porto (Portugal)

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.

Each workshop will have slightly different objectives and be targeted at different communities. These include service providers, e-infrastructures, national representatives, infrastructure providers and scholarly communication experts. A common thread throughout is to work towards a common set of insights and recommendations to support the scholarly landscape move on in implementing practical services that meet the needs of tomorrow’s FAIR-oriented researchers.

 

EOSC-hub Data Platforms for data processing and solutions for publishing and archiving scientific data (Part I)

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 09:00 to 10:30

The main objective of this session is to show how EOSC services can be used for managing active research data (i.e. data transfer, storage, and sharing) and for preserving final research data (i.e. data archiving and publishing). During this training, we will give a brief overview of the EUDAT Services in the data life cycle and demonstrate how these services operate and integrate with each other to meet the data management requirements of research communities and comply with the FAIR principles - which require the data to be properly documented, annotated, archived, published and accessible to the wider community.
