Train the trainer Webinar "FAIR data and services" for NI4OS project

Wednesday, February 19, 2020 - 14:00 to Thursday, March 19, 2020 - 15:30

The FAIR data principles are a set of guiding principles to make data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. The principles provide guidance for scientific data management and stewardship in order to facilitate open science, the approach to scientific progress based on sharing available knowledge using collaborative tools and digital technologies.

Workshop on Training in EOSC

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - 12:00 to Friday, February 28, 2020 - 12:00

Training is essential to make EOSC work. There is now a significant volume of training activities in EOSC with the associated deliverables and experiences. Obviously, training will be an important element of the future development and evolution of EOSC. With new EOSC (INFRAEOSC) calls on the horizon, and a new EOSC working group on Skills and Training to be established in 2020, it now seems the appropriate moment to bring trainers together and discuss how to improve EOSC training provision by its quality, findability, accessibility and the easier reuse of learning resources.

Trainers, or training coordinators, within the EOSC projects and associated organisations are invited to join.

GBIF.ES Workshop: Use and management of the GBIF global and national portals

Tuesday, January 21, 2020 - 09:00 to 14:00

This theoretical and practical workshop will focus on explaining how to use the GBIF.ES National Data Portal, supported by guided exercises on its main functionalities. A space will also be left to explore the GBIF International Biodiversity Data Portal (www.gbif.org).

DMCC+ training activities in Malaysia

HADDOCK Workshop

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 - 09:00 to Thursday, December 19, 2019 - 18:00

HADDOCK workshop on information – driven modelling of biomolecular complexes”, taking place in Coimbra in the 18 and 19 of december 2019, has been credited with 0.76 UC by “Colégio de Biologia Humana e Saúde da Ordem dos Biólogos”.

Big Data Management infrastructures and Analytics

Monday, December 9, 2019 - 09:00 to Thursday, December 12, 2019 - 16:30

Il corso si svolgera' presso la Sala Venturi di INFN-CNAF Viale Berti Pichat 6/2, Bologna 

Saranno affrontati temi riguardanti la gestione di infrastrutture scalabili per l'analisi dei big data, partendo dal livello piu' basso (cloud e container e loro orchestrazione), proseguendo con le tecnologie di gestione dei dati (HDFS, Spark, Kafka), fino ad arrivare ai tool di analisi dati e all'applicazione di tecniche di Machine Learning per l'estrazione di nuove informazioni dai dati disponibili.  

Open Science with Jupyter Zenodo and Binder

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 - 13:30 to 17:00

In recent years, the vision of Open Science has emerged as a new paradigm for transparent, data-driven science capable of accelerating competitiveness and innovation.  EGI Notebooks is a services of the EGI e-infrastructure, providing a user-friendly and highly flexible Jupyter-based web environment for the development and execution of data analysis and visualisation ‘notebooks’. Notebooks can contain programming codes in various languages, HTML scripts, dynamic visualization, equations as well as images and explanatory text to provide guidance and context for the 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. Binder can turn Jupyter notebooks reproducible and reusable by anyone, anywhere. Zenodo is an open access repository for research publications, scientific data and other 'research objects'. Jupyter, Binder and Zenodo are pillars of Open Science.

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.
