The EGI Conference 2017 and the INDIGO summit 2017 will take place this year in Catania, Italy from 9 to 12 May. The events are hosted by the INFN Catania, part of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics.
The EGI Conference 2017 is the EGI Community’s main event of 2017. The conference programme is focused on the technical roadmapping of EGI, with days dedicated to authorisation and authentication, compute services both HTC and cloud, as well as storage & data services. Sessions on e-infrastructure governance, procurement and business models are also included in the programme.
The INDIGO Summit 2017 will be the flagship event of the INDIGO-DataCloud project, with a focus on user engagement and the INDIGO service catalogue.
This summit explores the solutions provided by the INDIGO software, applying them to concrete use cases brought forward by scientific communities and resource providers. The event will also be an opportunity for service providers or service integrators to understand how the INDIGO solutions and services are appealing for industry.
The two events will be held in Catania and the venue is Le Ciminiere, a modern museum complex housed in a converted sulphur refinery. Catania is a delightful city, with a rich culture and history, hosting many museums, restaurants, churches, parks and theatres and it’s very well known for its street food.
The programme for both events is online on the conference’s website and includes joint sessions, for example, the EGI-INDIGO workshop on community application support.
The registration for the events is open and more information is available on the event’s site.
