CHAIN-REDS Workshop on Supporting collaborative applications for global research (Guwahati, India - December 17, 2014) - REGISTER NOW

A workshop on Supporting collaborative applications for global research will be held in Guwahati, India, on December 17, 2014. This workshop – organised by the CHAIN-REDS EU-funded project under the aegis of the European Commission (DG CONNECT) – is organised in co-location with the NKN (National Knowledge Network) Annual Workshop 2014 and will take place at the Indian Institute of Technology, in Guwahati.

This workshop will give participants a comprehensive overview of collaborative opportunities opening to Indian researchers, including the Garuda Grid services, remote access to applications such as GROMACS, and new methodologies for better sharing and accessing trustworthy and open science data online. More generally, this workshop will give a unique overview of all solutions - supported by CHAIN-REDS - that enable sharing of scientific data and remote access to advanced research facilities. The workshop will present the advantages offered by these applications in terms of easiness of access to worldwide distributed resources and services.

The event aims also at providing a forum for discussions and debates on recent developments and perspectives in the field. This workshop is organised by C-DAC with the support of Sigma Orionis and all CHAIN-REDS project partners.

CHAIN-REDS is a project aiming at promoting and supporting technological and scientific collaboration across different e-Infrastructures established and operated in various continents, in order to define a path towards a global e-Infrastructure ecosystem that will allow Virtual Research Communities (VRCs), research groups and even single researchers to access and efficiently use worldwide distributed resources (i.e., computing, storage, data, services, tools, applications).

The NKN Annual Workshop 2014 is being held at the IIT, Guwahati, India from 15 to 17 December, 2014. The focus area for the workshop is to moot upon how NKN as the Next-Generation Network (NGN) manages multiple types of traffic (such as voice, data and multimedia). The workshop will also cover sessions on the leading practices in Cyber Security and Networking, on-going experiments and experiences on NKN by few selected user institutes which would enlighten the NKN community to explore various possibilities in the future.

The Agenda at a glance will be revealed soon. Registrations are now open. REGISTER NOW!
