The European HTCondor Workshop: 4-7 September

The European HTCondor Workshop will take place this year in the United Kingdom, from 4 to 7 September 2018, hosted by Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in Oxfordshire with help from the STFC Scientific Computing Department and GridPP UK project.

The workshop will be an excellent occasion for learning from the sources (the developers!) about HTCondor, exchanging with your colleagues about experiences and plans, and providing your feedback to the experts. Participation is open to anyone interested in HTCondor.

A reduced early-bird registration fee will apply until 31 July.

Workshop: The PhenoMeNal gateway – a portal to metabolomics data analysis in the cloud

This workshop will provide an introduction to metabolomics data analysis in a cloud computing environment, based on resources developed and provided by the PhenoMeNal project. The participants will become familiar with a range of relevant open-source tools and workflows developed by PhenoMeNal. There will be a large practical component, where participants will learn through hands-on tutorials to use a workflow-based approach and compute infrastructure for data analysis and data submission, under the guidance of expert trainers and teaching assistants.

This course is aimed at researchers in metabolomics and bioinformatics who wish to learn new techniques in metabolomics data analysis using the cloud platform. Participants should have some metabolomics experience and an interest in computational data analysis.

International Workshop on Big Data Analytics

The Big Data Analytics Workshop (BigDAW18) will take place in Italy, from 8 to 10 May 2018.

Aim of the workshop

Managing and processing large volumes of data, or “Big Data”, and gaining meaningful insights is a significant challenge facing the distributed computing community. As a consequence, many businesses are demanding large-scale streaming data analytics. This has a significant impact on a wide range of domains, including health care, biomedical research, internet searches, finance and business informatics, and scientific computing.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a fertile ground for collaboration among research institutions and industries in the fields of analytics, machine learning, and high-performance computing.

Submissions

Authors are invited to submit full papers to the workshop. Full papers must be submitted through the workshop submission site and should not exceed six double-column pages in ACM conference format. This limit includes figures, tables, and references.

Important dates

Duration: 8 May to 10 May 2018

Submission deadline: 10 February 2018

Decision notification: 14 March 2018

Camera-ready copy: 28 March 2018

The 3rd CernVM Users’ Workshop

This article is posted on behalf of Catalin Condurache.

The next CernVM Users’ Workshop will take place at CERN from 30 January to 1 February 2018.

Following the successful editions held at CERN and RAL (UK), the workshop aims to bring together users and developers to discuss the current status of the CernVM ecosystem and the future directions, with a fresh look onto the landscape of technology and the evolution in virtualization and cloud computing.

This edition will also be the occasion to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the CernVM project.

As in previous editions, guests from industry will attend to speak on selected technology topics, while the third day of the workshop will be entirely dedicated to ‘hands on’ sessions.
