Global Open Science Cloud Workshop - International Cloud Integration

  • Enol Fernandez (EGI.eu)


This workshop will be an extension of European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) discussion during the conference, and will provide the unique opportunity to review the global open science infrastructure development, share experiences, and identify concrete collaborations.

This is the 3rd annual Global Open Science Cloud (GOSC) workshop, a joint effort of the EGI Foundation, the Computer Network Information Center (CNIC) of the Chinese Academy of Science, and CODATA, the committee of data of the International Science Council.

The first session will focus on CODATA GOSC discussions, starting with a keynote from Simon Hodson, the CODAT executive director, who will give an overview of GOSC activities and introduce the newly funded project, WorldFAIR. It is followed by 2 well developed Case Studies -- Radar group by Dr Ingemar Haggstrom from EISCAT, and SDG-13 group by Dr Lili Zhang from CNIC, and they will present users' needs.

In order to answer the question: How can GOSC help? A second keynote will come from GOSC TI Group, and Prof Jianhui Li will present the proposed technology solutions. Further, we will dig deep into 3 technical areas: AAI, Cloud federation and Data Interoperability, and we are honoured to invite leading technical experts, Incl. Dr Nicolas Liampotis who leads the EOSC AAI discussion, Dr Enol Fernandez who leads the EGI FedCloud task force, and Dr Milan Ojsteršek who chairs the GOSC DI group.

The second session focuses on the concrete implementation cases. This time we bring in the discussions with global cloud industries, and Dr Ye Huang from China Alibaba will give a keynote on advanced Cloud technology in Alibaba and their collaboration use cases with CNIC.

The rest of the session will celebrate the success of the Cloud federation across regions and countries achieved via EGI-ACE. We will learn the challenges of connecting regional clouds of China and South Africa with EGI; we will also learn the successful stories of connecting national clouds of Hungary, Romania, Armenia with EGI.
