    Data Subscription Big Data – Coordinator: Aleksi Kallio - Room: "JAZZ" (download materials)
    This is an interactive session for discussing the need of user oriented data subscription service. We will describe the Euro-Argo use case from ENVRI+ collaboration, where data from marine floats is made efficiently searchable with big data technologies (Apache Spark). The next challenge is to allow users to submit offline searches and to allow them to subscribe to changes in search results when new data is added to the main dataset. Participants are encourage to present related use cases and to suggest relevant technologies or solutions.

    EUDAT, ENVRIplus and RISCAPE present their respective efforts and plans wrt describing Research Infrastructure Landscape. The advantages of their respective methodologies will be discussed and also the possibility of using standardised classifications and terminology. All those interested are welcome.
    Libraries - Coordinator: Rob Baxter - Room: "DEBATTI" (download material)
    The session will focus on the recent LIBER research data services survey and will explore whether the current European e-infrastructure service landscape "meets the needs" and "bridges the gaps" highlighted in the survey.
    The discussion-led session will look at questions like:
    • Does e-infrastructure bridge the technical services gap?
    • Do libraries need common, Europe-wide e-Infrastructure or connected local solutions?
    • What value to libraries see in "interoperability" between themselves/third-party data services?
    • Is the current e-infra sufficiently well aligned the mandates and protocols of libraries and funders (e.g. the forthcoming Science Europe RDM policy protocols for funders)? And if not, what do we need to do about it? 
    PAIRQURS Data Pilot Meeting - Coordinator: Margareta Hellström - Room: "SOUL" (download material)
    In this session, we will summarize the current status of PAIRQURS, and discuss different scenarios for extending the project's continued uptake of B2 services. The development of new features for e.g. allowing controlled access to sensitive data, and extending data retrieval interfaces with sub-setting capabilities, will also be discussed.

    Community Requirements & Service Roadmap EXPERTS – Coordinated by Daan Broeder & Johannes Reetz- Room: "AUDITORIUM"

    Detailed discussions on specific topics with dedicated groups (corners)


    This expert session is aimed at (1) end users interested in using any of the B2 services which require authentication via B2ACCESS, (2) communities who are interested in integrating with B2ACCESS to allow their user base to access the B2 services or offer a community service to the EUDAT user base and (3) communities who are looking for an Authentication and Authorization solution which can be re-used for their purposes. 


    In this session we show (1) how communities can publish their metadata in EUDAT-B2FIND and (2) how end users can search and access research data by using the metadata discovery service B2FIND. 


    The session will cover the DataCite metadata standard used for essential metadata and will be a chance for the communities to provide their feedbacks, as well as focusing on how to add community specific metadata to B2SHARE and how B2SAFE intends to handle metadata. 


    Community representatives will be able to directly interact with the B2SHARE team and provide feedback on the expected features of the upcoming v2 release as well as on the features already implemented and available in the production instance.


    The session "B2SAFE" will focus on the last updates related to metadata and the new PID profile support.
    The session "B2SAFE-DPM" will show the Data Policy Manager in action: how to define, store, download, enforce and update a data policy.

    B2NOTE (download material)

    The focus of the session will be to demo B2NOTE to the communities and gather feedbacks as well as additional requirements.

    The objectives of this expert session are:

    1. Presenting the new pilot service B2NOTE and its first test integration with B2SHARE
    2. Gathering feedbacks, comments and feature request about B2NOTE
    3. Discussing communities’ needs for additional semantic services 
    4. Discussing the future activities of the semantic working group
    5. Providing consulting about semantic web and linked data services.


    The session will entirely revolve around B2HANDLE, and it will be a chance for customers to question and discuss about the service.


    B2DROP: Roadmap and B2SHAREBRIDGE release.

    GEF info &demo

    The Generic Execution Framework (GEF) will enable scientific users to process data close to their storage location in the CDI. It is engineered around the Docker containerization technology. This will allow users to build reusable services that perform the desired computations and to share them with their own scientific community and beyond. The GEF is currently under development and is slated to become part of the CDI. The user forum is an ideal opportunity for users to shape this development to their needs. 

    LTER DEIMS demo

    The LTER DEIMS demo will demonstrate possibilities to implement B2Share within already existing data services, e.g. LTER Europe, and provide an outlook for more generalised approaches towards service integration.
