Final report of the Solid Proof of Concept for the CERN-Solid collaboration

by Jan Schill , Maria Dimou (CERN)




Solid is Sir Tim Berners-Lee's project that aims at giving back to the users ownership of their data, choice on the storage where these data reside and control over who has access to them.

In this talk, we'll explain the status of our input to Solid, after six months of experience with Solid Servers and pods - see also point 1 below (Maria).

The output of the Solid Proof of Concept via two  Indico extensions will be demonstrated and the challenges met will be explained - see also point 2 below (Jan).

A discussion on how to proceed will follow - see also points 3 and 4 below.
