INSTRUCT training course: Advanced methods for the integration of diverse structural data, Florence IT

Monday, February 19, 2018 - 12:30 to Friday, February 23, 2018 - 14:30

This Practical Course co-organized by INSTRUCT and West-Life will introduce and make extensive use of user-friendly e-Science portals to facilitate the adoption of the methods and techniques by the participants in their everyday work. In particular, we will exploit the web-based, cloud-enabled services of the WeNMR and West-Life e-infrastructures, also in collaboration with the European Grid Initiative (EGI). West-Life is a H2020 EU project.

The hands-on sessions will allow the students to try the methods on either pre-packaged or their own research data.

The course will address state-of-the-art tools and facilities.
