EUDAT is preparing the next phase of its common data services and is organizing a series of workshops with a view to establishing Working Groups on the following topics:
The workshops will bring together EUDAT-related community representatives, domain experts and EUDAT technologists to discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with such services. The workshops will have joint sessions and in particular parallel tracks to discuss these four topics.
The goal of the workshops is to determine the best strategy for EUDAT to reach a consensus on the "common" services and policies in these topic areas that will be of most benefit to research communities in their work.
EUDAT will start the workshops with a plenary session where the four different topic areas will be presented briefly. After that, the participants will split into four separate groups (one per topic area) to allow in-depth discussions on each topic. Finally, the participants will all come together again in a plenary meeting to report and discuss the outcomes. The intention is to create high level reports about the meeting and the group results.
For each group, there will be two co-chairs who prepare and run the session for that group. EUDAT is inviting a number of external experts, along with interested people from all the scientific communities that are collaborating with EUDAT. The number of people per group will be restricted to a maximum of 15 to make it possible to hold intensive in-depth discussions of the group topic.
If you are interested to become a member of one the Working Groups, or wish to receive additional information on a specific group, you can send your request to the following contact persons:
