EGI-INDIGO workshop on community application support

This interactive workshop support scientific communities in the integration and development of domain-specific applications with e-infrastructure services. The event brings together representatives of scientific communities, projects, Research Infrastructures with the developers and providers of EGI & INDIGO-DataCloud e-infrastructure software and services.

The workshop is dedicated to resource providers and researchers from all disciplines, all around Europe. Researchers working in Biological and Medical science, Social science and Humanities, Environmental and Earth science and Physics and Astrophysics will have the opportunity to also learn about the uses cases already developed by the project.

The event is also been the opportunity for service providers or service integrators to understand how the INDIGO solutions and services are appealing for industry, and to which extent they might be beneficial for service offerings and business adoption.
