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.

 

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.

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).

CODATA-RDA 2019

Monday, August 5, 2019 - 09:00 to Friday, August 16, 2019 - 13:00

The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School provides training in the foundational skills of Research Data Science.  Contemporary research – particularly when addressing the most significant, transdisciplinary research challenges – cannot be done effectively without a range of skills relating to data. This includes the principles and practice of Open Science and research data management and curation, the use of a range of data platforms and infrastructures, large scale analysis, statistics, visualisation and modelling techniques, software development and annotation and more. We define ‘Research Data Science’ as the ensemble of these skills.

The material covered here is fundamental to all areas of Data Science and hence open to researchers from all disciplines that deal with significant amounts of data. The focus is provide a practical introduction to these topics with extensive labs and seminars.

TOPICS:

  • Open Science
  • Introduction to Unix Shell
  • Programming for Analysis
  • Git
  • Research Data Management
  • Author Carpentry
  • Data Visualisation
  • Information Security
  • Machine Learning
  • Computational Infrastructures

HADDOCK On Information-Driven Modelling Of Biomolecular Complexes – DSxWORKSHOP

Wednesday, July 24, 2019 - 08:30 to 17:40

HADDOCK is one of the earlier developed protein-protein docking tools contributed by the Computational Structural Biology group / NMR Research Group of Utrecht University that was led by Prof. Bonvin. HADDOCK can integrate information derived from biochemical, biophysical or bioinformatics methods to enhance sampling, scoring, or both. The information that can be integrated is quite diverse: among others interface restraints from NMR, mutagenesis experiments, or bioinformatics predictions and, recently, cryo-electron microscopy experiments.

An EOSC-hub proposal for the EOSC Technical Architecture

Wednesday, July 24, 2019 - 11:00 to 12:30

This webinar will describe the Reference Technical Architecture for EOSC proposed by EOSC-hub during the recent EOSC-hub Technical Workshop.

The proposed architecture is based on the concepts of service composability and interoperability. Service categories and relationships between them will be presented. The process to define interoperability guidelines for different technical areas will be also depicted.

An EOSC-hub proposal for the EOSC Service Management System

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 - 11:00 to 12:30

This webinar will introduce the Service Management System based on the FitSM standard for IT Service Management developed and deployed by EOSC-hub for EOSC, with a particular focus on the Service Portfolio Management as a key and highly strategic process. The structure of the EOSC Service Portfolios will be also presented.
