iRODS workshop

Organizers: Agnès Ansari (CNRS/IDRIS), Tom Langborg (SNIC/LIU)

from Wednesday, 26 September 2012 at 01:30 PM to Friday, 28 September at 01:00 PMat Linköping, (Sweden), Linköping University, Campus Valla, Galax building, NSC conference room

This open workshop aims to gather people from a large range of disciplines interested in data management. Users needs and requirements on data management in the HPC field will be discussed, with focus on the iRODS data management system. Participants will thus have the opportunity to understand iRODS features and applicability. It will include an iRODS tutorial, demo and hands-on training sessions, presentations on users applications and will tackle the iRODS strategy and future. Participants bringing laptops will have the opportunity to leave the workshop with an operational data management system.
