EGI Annual Conference 2021: Submit your abstract now!

Call for Abstracts Deadline extended until August 9th!

#EGI2021 will take place from October 19th until 21st. The conference theme is: “Beyond the Horizon: Shaping the Digital Future”.

This year, we’re looking at how EGI Federation is contributing to shaping the digital future: with EOSC growing more mature, the new EU research funding programme Horizon Europe on its way, and an exciting range of advanced services and innovative computing models supporting research, a new landscape for research is being shaped.

At the same time, the challenges we face at a global level – climate change, health crises and the fight against inequality – force researchers, service providers, funders, institutions and policy makers to rise above the status quo.

At this edition of EGI Conference, we invite the community to work together in shaping the  digital future with advanced computing services. Together, we will showcase new services and tools, investigate technical innovations, explore business opportunities and strategic and policy-related initiatives. As always, it will be a great event to present your own work and ideas, and to meet your peers and colleagues from all over the world.

We’re looking for submissions (presentations, posters, demonstrations or sessions/workshops) in line with the following themes:

  • Delivering services and solutions: We are looking for use cases and proven solutions related to services for distributed computing and data analytics. We also welcome submissions related to services and policies for federating data and computing infrastructures
  • Innovating services together: Do you want to share ideas, concepts, prototypes for joint innovation activities and bring them to maturity for use? Are you eager to share your latest invention and receive feedback from the community? Let’s advance innovative services and solutions together
  • Collaboration across boundaries: We’re looking for ideas to enhance collaborations and establish new partnerships in a distributed ecosystem. We are eager to listen to success stories on how scientific excellence has been enabled through the federation of national, regional and international e-infrastructures and in particular the EGI Federation
  • Envisioning the future: Are you developing specific strategies in compute ecosystems that can be relevant to the EGI community? Or are you eager to discuss and brainstorm about evolving the way we support open science or other policy topics? We look forward to sharing and absorbing knowledge that will support us to shape the digital future together.
