e-Research Summer Hackfest: The Onedata platform - part 2

Krzysztof Trzepla & Konrad Zemek
In this set of four videos we will give an overview of Onedata concepts such as spaces, user groups and providers. We will then discuss onedata system's internal architecture with a focus on scalability, fault tolerance and remote data access. onedata's implementation of CDMI protocol will be briefly discussed along with features for metadata management. To conclude, we will present broadly some of our plans for the close future, focusing on Opendata integration in the...

A Near Real-Time Meteorological Data Depository for Atmospheric Research in Africa

&
Development of a remotely accessible meteorological data depository from an online server located at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU). Using resources based on existing RENs this facility will allow researchers anywhere in the world to download reliable atmospheric data (in near real-time) from an array of low-cost automatic (and autonomous) weather stations to be deployed across Nigeria. This online database will be useful for the study of the atmospheric phenomena (regional climate modelling, aerosol loading and...

This lecture presents the Sci-GaIA project and introduces the hackfest. The video is the recording of one of the lectures given at the EthERNet e-Research Hackfest (http://www.sci-gaia.eu/ethernet-hackfest).

EthERNet e-Research Hackfest - Patterns in e-Science Applications

B Becker
The hackfest brings together researchers and infrastructure service developers, in order to bring new applications to bear in scientific research. But what resources will be available to deploy these applications on in a production environment ?And what aspects of applications make for good practice, and for bad practice? Using Design Patterns as an analogy, we investigate patterns in grid and cloud infrastructure usage, data management and application development - but also patterns in research, such...

EthERNet e-Research Hackfest - The FutureGateway framework

R Bruno
In this lecture will be first introduced the FutureGateway (FG) framework, described each of its components and explained how they work together. During the presentation will be also covered some security considerations related to the Science Gateway membership handling using as point of reference the standard baseline AAI mechanism provided by the standard FG installation and how to modify it to switch between already existing AAI mechanisms. The FutureGateway provides also a complete set of...

EthERNet e-Research Hackfest - Science Gateway - Overview and Internals

M Torrisi
Science Gateways are playing an important role in scientific research. They provide powerful interfaces that allow reserachers and Communities of Practice (CoPs) to seamlessly access and exploit various kinds of distributed computing and storage resources. This lecture aims to show what Science Gateways are and the technologies "behind" them. In particular, it will presented the frameworks adopted by the Sci-GaIA project to develop Science Gateways: the Catania Science Gateway Framework (CSGF) and its heir, the...

EthERNet e-Research Hackfest - Scientific use cases supported by the Sci-GaIA project

R Barbera
In this lecture we will report on the implementation status of each of the use cases selected for the past hackfests and supported thereafter. We will underly their scientific and social relevance and briefly describe the tools and the technologies adopted. The video is the recording of one of the lectures given at the EthERNet e-Research Hackfest (http://www.sci-gaia.eu/ethernet-hackfest).

EthERNet e-Research Hackfest - Education e-Library and MOOC Platform for Ethiopian Research and Education Communities

Ethiopian Education Roadmap Project is a research project that studies about the current education system ranging from pre-school to the tertiary education. Until now, comprehensive literature reviews are conducted and hundreds of artifacts have been analyzed. The huge documents collected during this study process need to be turned into an e-library that will eventually be utilized as an African Education Library comprising of research publications, books, journals and other related materials. This lecture reports on...

Training the Future ICT Innovators on Open Science Platform

A. Kondoro, D Rwegasira, I Ben Dhaou, A Kelati, S Naiman, H Tenhunen, N Mvungi & V Taajamaa
Due to changes in the market positions of old companies caused by innovation in technologies,services, business concepts and global challenges faced by nations in terms of climate and safety, academic systems in Europe have started to look into new pedagogical models and strategic partnerships. The new systems that connect research, education and innovation can offer unique opportunities to explore different solutions that were not possible before. In this paper, we present concrete experiences and directions...

The Sci-GaIA project: final results, lessons learnt and opportunities for the African Communities of Practice

R Barbera & The Sci-GaIA Consortium
Sci-GaIA (www.sci-gaia.eu) is an EU funded project that ran from May 2015 to April 2017. Initially set out to create sustainable training to support scientific endeavour through Science Gateways and e-Infrastructures in Africa. To better motivate and to establish a clearer route to impact, the project shifted focus to embrace Open Science to better open up scientific achievements in Africa across the world. Overall, the Sci-GaIA project has made thousands of people made aware of...
