EOSCpilot All Hands Meeting - AGENDA


DAY 1 - 8 March 2018

8:00-9:00 Registration

Plenary session: Introduction and project management overview (20 min). Followed by report from WP 4, 5 & 6 (20 min each WP). The reports should be informative, to help build an understanding of the project as a whole.
Proposed structure is:
•       WP objectives and tasks
•       Work done so far  
•       Plan for the rest of the project.

Introduction and  project management overview

WP4 - Science Demonstrators

WP5 - Services

WP6 - Interoperability

10:30-11:00 Break - Coffee & Tea will be available in Room 29
  Room 27 Room 28  Room 30

WP8 - fine tune the EOSCpilot FAQs.

WP8 is planning to ask all WPs to provide input about the questions, WP8 will filter and prioritise them and propose initial draft answers, to be validated by all WPs. The session could be used to efficiently fine tune the FAQ before they are published.

WP5 activities for 2018 - events and high-level plans

EOSC concepts and terminology (25’ presentation)

EOSC Architecture (25’ presentation)

EOSC Portfolio Management (25’ presentation) [Convener Jos van Wezel]

WP3 Policy workshop to discuss the findings of our work on shortlisting and validating policy issues to address for the EOSC. We would like to receive input from those with policy expertise, likely to be drawn from any/all other WPs, and SDs.  Including procurement requirements relating to SDs and architecture/service.
12:30-13:30 Lunch - Lunch will be available in Room 29
  Room 27 Room 28 Room 30

WP8 Cross stakeholder engagement

WP8 would like to have one session to coordinate stakeholder engagement activities particularly with the WPs that are working on more tangible parts of the project such as WP4, WP5 and WP6 (however WP2, WP3 and WP7 would be welcome too). The idea is to share the overall engagement roadmap and refine it based on WP input, show them how WP8 can support them and how it can coordinate with them in the delivery of the engagement/communication actions

Architecture related discussion [Convener Donatella Castelli]

Portfolio Mgmt related discussion [Convener Jan Bot]

Towards a shared EOSC terminology [Convener Leonardo Candela]

[Sy Holsinger] Presentation of current work on T5.3

[ Ari Lukkarinen ] Multiple discussion topics in preparation of work in T5.3

Notes & outcomes from the session

WP7 would like a session on taking forward the training/skills requirements - potential overlap with the later sessions re EOSCHub, but it’s broader than that.

Skills landscape & framework

Skill gaps and planning for training pilots

FAIR training as a service  – workshop feedback and needs for further validation

12:30-13:00 Plenary session: Short wrap-up from the Project Coordinator, setting the scene for the next stage of the project.

                                                                                 Lunch & end of meeting

Additional extra sessions
  Room 27 Room 28 Room 30

WP6 Data Interoperability Demonstrators.

- Index EDMI metadata

- Metadata property guidelines

T6.3 technical hands-on meeting for PiCo2 - Pilot for Connection between COmputing centers

Interoperability Pilots


WP5 meeting
15:30-16:00 Break - Coffee & Tea will be available in Room 29
  Room 27 Room 28 Room 30
16:00-17:30   T6.3 - PiCo2 - meeting continues
This technical session aims at extending the capabilities to demonstrate technological interoperability on a wider scale inside EOSCpilot. The idea is to foster and work on technical collaborations between people involved in EOSCpilots technical platforms. It stemmed from an ongoing collaboration between the technical teams of DESY and CC-IN2P3 that are involved with the Photon&Neutron and Pico2 pilot project, respectively. DESY will take part in the iRODS-based storage federation (deployed for Pico2), while CC-IN2P3 will collaborate with DESY on multi-cloud containerized workflows (built for Photon&Neutron). This involves sharing technical expertise and some resources (at the proof of concept scale).This session will feature quick status updates on participants' technical platforms to induce collaboration: * their work done so far; * the challenges they encountered; * their interests for possible multi-lateral collaborations. This will be followed by an informal hands-on hacking session and discussions on the various technological aspects that will be highlighted by the previous presentations. This should interest anyone involved with pilot deployment on the technical level.
