Luis C. BUSQUETS PÉREZ (European Commission)
The talk will focus on how the policy of the European Commission on Distributed Computing infrastructures and how these can address the increasing needs of research communities for processing massive amounts of data and experimenting in silico. The talk will present policies and actions expected for e-Infrastructures under Horizon 2020, how Cloud Computing becomes part of the solution, and...
Ignacio M. Llorente (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)
HPC-optimized clouds provide access to flexible and elastic scientific and technical computing to solve complex problems and drive innovation. This talk will describe the most demanded features for building HPC and science clouds. Using real-life case studies from leading research and industry organizations, the talks will illustrate how OpenNebula effectively addresses the challenges of cloud...

https://portal.futuregrid.org/ We describe our experience in providing Computing Testbed as a Service CTaaS in FutureGrid with lessons for the Future. We give an overview of the operating model as now and looking forward. We give details of partners, hardware and services offered and go through sample projects in the fore areas computer science, domain science, education and technology...
Dr Brian Wee (NEON)
The rapid pace of large-scale environmental changes around the globe has underscored the value of accessible long-term data sets for understanding the context of scientific observations, and for forecasting future conditions for societal benefit. We are also entering an era of large-scale, interdisciplinary science fuelled by large data sets that will be analysed by current and future...
Dr Niklas Blomberg (ELIXIR)
The mission of ELIXIR is to construct and operate a sustainable infrastructure for the sharing of biological information throughout Europe, to support life science research and drive its translation to medicine and the environment, the bio- industries and society. The challenges in storing, integrating and analyzing the data from modern biological experiments are real; ELIXIR meets this...
Dr Afonso Duarte (ITQB - UNL)
Structural Biology studies the molecular structure of biological molecules and the way molecules interact with each other. This information is crucial to understand how they function inside living cells and how their deregulation can lead to disease. Structures are determined by measuring distances and angles between the millions of atoms inside proteins and other macromolecules. To obtain...
Prof. Xavier Barcons (Instituto de Física de Cantabria (CSIC-UC), Santander, Spain)
Astronomy is largely an observationally-driven scientific discipline, but with a wide range of associated activities (space exploration, computing, data archiving, theory and simulations, etc.). Large observatories built and operated by European intergovernmental organisations, in particular those from ESO - European Southern Observatory and ESA - European Space Agency, drive a very...
