Session Collaborative Workshop / Tutorial


Steven Newhouse (CERN)

Session Description (include details of proposed agenda, potential speakers and expected outcomes)

The focus will be the exchange of information on ICT requirements of ESFRI research infrastructures as well as the services and future directions of Europe's e-Infrastructures. Closer interaction between the groups will help understand how the needs of the future Research Infrastructures can be accommodated by e-Infrastructures so that they can part of the computing models. It is expected that common themes and potential joint-plans can be concluded from this session and recorded in a report.

Project(s) or EGEE activity presenting the demo or poster (project or activity names only)



The European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures Roadmap states that Research Infrastructures “often require structured information systems related to data management, enabling information and communication. These include ICT-based infrastructures such as Grid, computing, software and middleware.” and continues with “e-Infrastructures are critical to all projects in this roadmap”.

A dialog has started between individual ESFRI projects and existing ICT-based infrastructures, such as EGEE, to understand how best they can make use of e-Infrastructures. This session aims to push forward this dialog by bringing together the relevant experts to elaborate suitable ICT architectures for ESFRI projects and guide the e-Infrastructures in their priorities for the future.

Please indicate your preferred day to give a demo.


Special requirements other than the set up mentioned in the CfA text.
