EGI Community Forum 2015 - Bari


EGI 2015 - Lisbon

A global meeting took place in Lisbon, along the EGI Conference:

Notice the session on monday afternoon introducing the Competence Centers, where a presentation from LifeWatch CC by Jesus summarized the CC aims, framework and resources [1]. Notice also that there was a meeting of the EU Brazil Cloud connect project that same day.

There were "All hands" afternoon sessions for Competence Centers on tuesday, wednesday and thursday, oriented to the general framework components that will be available. In particular the session on Open Data on Thursday.

There was also an specific session on Citizen Science on Tuesday 15.30-17h, co-chaired by Fermin Serrano from BIFI, including two presentations on biodiversity: Citizen Science Initiatives in the Mediterranean Basin[2] by Emmanouela Panteri, and BioDiversity4All by Patricia Tiago.

and, most important, we had the two specific LW sessions:

  1. Lifewatch CC Session 1: Monday 18th, 17:00 - 18:00
  2. Lifewatch CC Session 2: Thursday 21st, 17:00 - 18:00

For Monday the objetive was that we know each other "requirements" and the "global framework" (FedCloud, etc).

For Thursday the idea was to continue the presentations and then re-cap: what we learned, discussed, etc, and plans for next steps.
