The D4Science e-Infrastructure is a distributed network of service nodes designed to exploit the EGI Federated Cloud, residing on multiple sites, and managed by one or more organizations. It allows scientists to collaborate and offers a multiplicity of facilities as-a-service: data sharing, transfer, harmonization, Cloud processing and storage. D4Science has been used to support communities in several domains and it hosts models and data contributed by several international organizations. This tutorial will give attendees an overview of how to access and share data, how to execute either simple scripts or complex methods implemented in different languages, e.g. Fortran, R, Java, etc, on FedCloud overcoming technical boundaries not so often hidden in the exploited technologies.

- The D4Science e-Infrastructure and Virtual Research Environments
- Practice with the D4Science e-Infrastructure through web interfaces: sharing, social networking, interaction with applications
- Geospatial data visualization and representation
- Playing with specific domain models to familiarize with D4Science
--- Biological Science: (1) Accessing and representing large heterogeneous biological data, (2) Production of biodiversity trends, (3) Cloud computing and modelling with biological data
--- Environmental Science: Federation and visualisation of environmental data
