Below is the 2019 event. 


The 3rd edition of the Design your e-infrastructure Workshop will take place on 9 May 2019 in Amsterdam, after the EGI Conference 2019.

This interactive workshop will look into the design and setup of e-infrastructures for emerging scientific communities and their use cases.

The event will bring together 7 scientific communities, projects, Research Infrastructures with service and technology providers from the EGI community.

The workshop participants will hear short introduction talks about the EGI services, will analyse the use cases that the participating scientific communities bring to the event then, in small groups, will design and define suitable e-infrastructure setups and roadmaps to implement them using 'off-the-shelf' and customised solutions from the EGI community.  

Use cases

The workshop will focus on the following community use cases and will co-design e-infrastructure setups for them (Find further details about the use cases in the timetable below):

  1. Vincent Negre, INRA, France: PHIS plant phenotyping platform (agricultural sciences)
  2. PIN, Università degli Studi di Firenze, Italy: Access control for the ARIADNEplus services and data (archeology and cultural heritage)
  3. Zheng Meyer, ASTRON, Netherlands: ASTRON Science Data Centre (radio astronomy)
  4. Baptiste Cecconi, OBSPM, France: Data management and computing services for the NeuFAR telescope (radio astronomy)
  5. Adam Belloum, UvA, Netherlands: LOBCDER system for SKA from the PROCESS project (radio astronomy)
  6. Ingemar Haggstrom, EISCAT association, Sweden: Container computing for EISCAT_3D (athmospheric physics)
  7. Mihai Ciubancan, ELI-NP, Romania: Data and computing for the Nuclear Physics facility of the Extreme Light Infrastructure (Laser and nuclear physics)

What will we get out of the workshop?

  • Design and implementation plans for community-specific e-infrastructure use cases
  • Answers to participants' questions concerning EGI services and technologies 
  • Better understanding of the participating scientific use cases
  • Social network formed between use cases and e-infrastructure service providers
  • Gaps in e-infrastructure offerings, and service candidates to fill these gaps
  • Connections among e-infrastructure communities

The workshop is organised for

  • Scientific project, research infrastructures and research communities and groups who would like to setup, access or operate an e-infrastructure. 
  • Technology and service providers from the EGI community. The providers will present their services and will engage with the use cases through the break-out sessions of the afternoon.


Members of the EGI User Community Support Team: Gergely Sipos and Yin Chen. The organisers can be reached via the email list.

Previous events

This will be the 3rd edition of this event, following similar workshops that were organised at the EGI Conference in 2016, and at the DI4R Conference in 2017. The agenda pages of these previous workshops, the analysed use cases and the designed infrastructure roadmaps are available at and
