Description
This is the first meeting of the e-infrastructures User Forum through which the end-users themselves, in a cross-disciplinary body collaborate to define requirements and policies for the services that they use.

The meeting is organised in two sessions (Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning).

The first will focus on "setting the scene" - i.e. defining what the "problem" or situation is, as seen from the various communities.

  • As there will be limited time and as it is important to reserve plenty of time for discussions, it would help if this could be based on brief documents that are submitted beforehand - e.g. by end October. In many cases suitable documents probably already exist. Then each group could summarise what they see as the main issues and how they might be addressed.

The second session will focus on "setting the direction" - answering some of the points ("deliverables") listed below, plus how often we should meet etc.

Draft deliverables of the User Forum are expected to include:

  • Prioritising and publishing issues facing the scientific communities in the areas of infrastructures;
  • Maintaining a database of contact information.
  • Providing an estimation of the impact of the e‐infrastructures on the research communities;
  • Providing information on the potential for a service in terms of market size and likely adoption;
  • Organising representative input from the scientific communities through workshops and polls;
  • Participating in strategic discussions with e‐infrastructure providers and projects;
  • Participating and providing input on strategic directions from the scientific community for the e-IRG, European Commission and national funding agencies.
