Workshop Data infrastructure for data management

Primary tabs

Utrecht, The Netherlands
Tuesday, 28 April, 2015 to Wednesday, 29 April, 2015
On 28th and 29th of April 2015, SURFacademy organises a two-day workshop on "Data infrastructure for data management".
The meeting provides an introduction to the tools for setting up a data management infrastructure, such as iRODS and PIDs, features lectures on existing services and infrastructure and offers a hands-on training session. Particularly the first day of the workshop will focus on data and iRODS management while the second day will be dedicated to the demos of the EUDAT services (namely B2SHARE, B2SAFE and B2FIND) and to hands-on on persistent identifiers.
The workshop is aimed at  ICT department employees and scientific programmers and support staff. 
Participants will be given cases with the aim of gaining a better understanding of the technology. Time has also been reserved to give participants some hands-on experience with the introduced technologies using virtual machines. The workshop will also include a presentation and demonstration of the data management services developed as part of the EUDAT, a European initiative for developing a quality system for this type of infrastructure.

More information and registration is available here.
