On Wednesday 12 March , the programme will focus on data-intensive sciences, for which currently Grid, HPC-Cloud and Hadoop services are provided. Grid services are provided in collaboration with Nikhef and RUG-CIT. The current state of the services, new developments and other topics like data stewardship, data analysis, visualisation and digital repositories, will be discussed. Users from various scientific domains will present how they use the infrastructure today, what their scientific challenges are for the future, and what infrastructure services they require to meet these challenges. The day will be concluded with a discussion to get a better picture of the e-infrastructure services needed for data-intensive sciences.
Keynote speakers are Joeri van Leeuwen, ASTRON & University of Amsterdam, and Antal van den Bosch, Radboud University Nijmegen.
The other speakers include Erwin van Eijk, Netherlands Forensic Institute & University of Twente; Stephen Helms, FOM Institute AMOLF; Djoerd Hiemstra, University of Twente; Milena Ivanova, Netherlands eScience Center; Lambert Schomaker, University of Groningen; Anwar Osseyran, Axel Berg, Irene Nooren, SURFsara.
On Thursday 13 March , the programme will focus on large-scale computing, for which SURFsara has the Cartesius and Lisa facilities available, typically used for simulation and modelling. Besides new developments and new services at the SURFsara computing facilities, users will show what kind of research they conduct on these systems. Also, the winner of the Wim Nieuwpoort Award - the Dutch scaling contest - will be chosen. In the afternoon, some key Dutch users of the computing systems will kick-off a discussion on the science case for large-scale computing facilities and the computational needs for the future.
Keynote speakers are Simon Portegies Zwart, Leiden University, and Andrea Prosperetti, Johns Hopkins University & University of Twente.
The other speakers include Zoltan Bochdanovits, VU University Medical Center; Evgeny Pidko, Eindhoven University of Technology; Stefan Frijters, Eindhoven University of Technology; Frank Seinstra, Netherlands eScience Center; Henk Dijkstra, Utrecht University; Detlef Lohse, University of Twente; Anwar Osseyran, Peter Michielse, Walter Lioen, SURFsara.
