Registration for DI4R 2017 is now open

The Digital Infrastructures for Research conference will be held this year in Brussels, Belgium, from 30 November to 1 December 2017. The event will take place at the Square Meeting Centre, and is organised jointly by EGI, EUDAT, GÉANT, OpenAIRE, PRACE and RDA Europe.

Europe’s leading e-infrastructures invite all researchers, developers and service providers for two days of brainstorming and discussions under the theme “Connecting the building blocks for Open Science”.

The 2017 edition of the DI4R conference will showcase the policies, processes, best practices, data and services that, leveraging today’s initiatives – national, regional, European and international – are the building blocks of the European Open Science Cloud and European Data Infrastructure.

The main goal of DI4R 2017 is to demonstrate how open science, higher education and innovators can benefit from these building blocks, and ultimately to advance integration and cooperation between initiatives. The event is collocated with the EOSCpilot 1st Stakeholder Engagement Event taking place on the 28 and 29 November 2017.

Online registration for the event is now open.

Early-bird rates are available until 30 October.

Call for papers: International Symposium on Grids and Clouds

The International Symposium on Grids and Clouds (ISGC) 2018 will be held at Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan from 16-23 March 2018, with co-located events and workshops. The main theme of ISGC 2018 is “Understanding open data: challenges and opportunities in the deep learning era”.

The global move towards an open science and its open data policy is bringing its first results in opening access to fast growing base of scientific data. This leads to a new set of challenges for the e-infrastructures expected to be the open science foundations. They must deal with new demands in traditional areas of their expertise: increase storage and computing capacity, simultaneous access to different pools of scientific data and strong access control for sensitive data.

The goal of ISGC 2018 is to bring together individual communities and national representatives to present and share their contributions and better understand open data and its challenges.

Please see more information and the full programme of the event.

Workshop: E-infrastructure cooperation for open science

The workshop “National and European e-infrastructure cooperation for open science” will take place on September 8, in Athens, Greece, as part of the Open Science Fair.

The workshop is co-organised by EGI, GEANT and OpenAIRE and comes in the context of coordinating EOSC-related activities across European e-infrastructures.

The event is an opportunity for national service providers and research collaborations to brainstorm and discuss topics such as community engagement, technical service provision, trainings and open scholarships.

The Open Science Fair is a 3-day event targeted at funders and policy makers, researchers, RIs and innovators to work together and design a roadmap of implementing open science in Europe.

Register now to the Open Science Fair and attend the workshop.
