HNSciCloud at EGI Conference 2017 and Indigo Summit 2017

The EGI Conference 2017 will be the EGI Community's main event of 2017 and will be the last meeting organised in the context of the EGI-Engage project. The programme will focus on the technical roadmap of EGI, with days dedicated to authorisation and authentication, compute services both HTC and cloud, as well as storage and data services. Sessions on e-infrastructure governance, procurement and business models will also be included in the programme.

The INDIGO Summit 2017 will be the flagship event of the INDIGO-DataCloud project, with a focus on user engagement and the INDIGO service catalogue. This event will be centered on exploring the solutions provided by the INDIGO software, applying them to concrete use cases brought forward by scientific communities and resource providers. Demos, training and hands-on implementation sessions will also be included in the programme.

The conferences will be hosted by INFN-Catania, part of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics.

HNSciCloud will be represented by Bob Jones, which will hold a procurement session to analyze the current trends within the European eInfrastructures. In this session, a number of current initiatives that have hands-on experience of procuring commercial cloud services for research communities will be presented. The session will be also an occasion to highlight their best practices and outline a scheme by which these can be combined to create a procurement model for the European Open Science Cloud.
During the session, updates on the progress of HNScicloud initiatives will be given, together with an overview of the contents of the EGI-Engage D2.11 deliverable (which promotes the work of PICSE and HNSciCloud).
