3rd WISE Workshop - Wise Information Security for collaborating E-infrastructures

  • 27 September

The WISE community will hold an open one-day workshop on 27th September 2016 before the DI4R conference in Krakow. WISE is a global trust community where security experts share information and work together, creating collaboration among different e-infrastructures. The working groups will give an update on their work during the workshop and future plans will be discussed, together with other key issues relating to security and trust. All members of e-Infrastructures, Research Infrastructures, research/user communities, indeed anyone wishing to learn about security collaboration, best practice and trust building in federated distributed infrastructures, are welcome.

Please refer to the detailed agenda  and registration link on the WISE Wiki


Workshop: Design your e-Infrastructure

This interactive workshop is organised by EGI in collaboration with OpenAIRE, EUDAT and GÉANT. The workshop will look into the design and development of e-infrastructures for emerging scientific communities and their use cases.

The event will bring together scientific communities, projects, Research Infrastructures with the providers of European e-infrastructure services. The workshop participants will analyse the use cases that the participating scientific communities bring to the event, then - in a collaborative way - will design and define suitable e-infrastructure setups and roadmaps to implement them using and customising solutions from the participating e-infrastructures.  

Participation is limited and representatives of user communities and research infrastructures have priority, please register to participate at the workshop website.


FitSM Foundation Training

FitSM is a lightweight approach to professional service management. FitSM training and certification provides a conceptual and process model, sets out straightforward and realistic requirements and links them to supporting materials.

This one-day Foundation level course aims to provide the basic IT service management concepts and terms (based on FitSM-0), outline the purpose and structure of FitSM standards and their relationship to other standards and understand the process framework underlying FitSM and requirements defined within it.
