Feb. 28 — EGI and XSEDE launch an initiative to help European and American scientists to share data across the Atlantic. The call for use cases is open until 8 March.
Scientific research is at the top of its game when it pools talent and resources in international collaborations. But sharing data and resources can be a challenge for teams scattered across Europe and the United States.
Recognising the challenges involved, EGI and XSEDE invite European and American researchers to submit their Collaborative Use Examples (CUEs) of the resources and services provided by both infrastructures until March 8.
"This call provides a way to report the issues communities experience in sharing their data to both the European and American infrastructures, to try and get these problems solved," says Steven Newhouse, director of EGI.eu. "Our aim is to help international science collaborations to share data and resources across the Atlantic easily and efficiently."
The Collaborative Use Examples will help EGI and XSEDE to better understand the breadth of research activities underway on both infrastructures and the requirements of international collaborations. This will lead to stronger collaborative relationships across all levels (e.g. operations, policy, user support) and an improved EGI and XSEDE service offer.
How to submit your CUE
Collaborative Use Examples should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org before March 8. They should be no longer than two pages and should address the following points:
