Workshop: Design your e-Infrastructure

WHEN: Thursday, 9 May 2019, 09:00 to 18:00 (CET).

WHERE: University of Amsterdam – Amsterdam Science Park

Chaired by Gergely Sipos ( and, Zhiming Zhao (, the 3rd edition of the Design your e-infrastructure Workshop will take place on 9 May 2019 in Amsterdam, after the EGI Conference 2019.

This interactive workshop will look into the design and setup of e-infrastructures for emerging scientific communities and their use cases. It is organised by members of the EGI User Community Support Team: Gergely Sipos and Yin Chen.

The event will bring together 7 scientific communities, projects, Research Infrastructures with service and technology providers from the EGI community.

After short introduction talks about the EGI services, the use cases brought by the participating scientific communities to the event will be analysed, and suitable e-infrastructure setups and roadmaps will be designed and defined using ‘off-the-shelf’ and customised solutions from the EGI community.

OUR USE CASE: PROCESS is working with SKA/LOFAR dataset to demonstrate its applicability, so we will present the LOBCDER system for SKA use case (radio astronomy), to explore whether the infrastructure adopted by PROCESS is easy to integrate with EGI and other existing e-infrastructures.

The other community use cases of the workshop will be:

  • PHIS plant phenotyping platform (agricultural sciences)
  • Access control for the ARIADNEplus services and data (archeology and cultural heritage)
  • ASTRON Science Data Centre (radio astronomy)
  • Data management and computing services for the NeuFAR telescope (radio astronomy)
  • Container computing for EISCAT_3D (athmospheric physics)
  • Data and computing for the Nuclear Physics facility of the Extreme Light Infrastructure (Laser and nuclear physics)

As a result of the workshop it is expected that participants will get design and implementation plans for community-specific e-infrastructure use cases, answers to questions concerning EGI services and technologies, a better understanding of the participating scientific use cases, a social network formed between the use cases and the e-infrastructure service providers, understanding of the gaps in e-infrastructure offerings, and service candidates to fill these gaps, and connections among e-infrastructure communities.
