IBERGRID 2018: Towards the European Open Science Cloud - EOSC

Dates: 11th - 12th October.

Place: Lisbon

The 9th Iberian Grid Conference will take place in Lisbon from Thursday 11th October to Friday 12th October. The conference will be held at the  University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL).

Following the spirit of the IBERGRID series of conferences, the 2018 edition is a timely opportunity for networking and fostering cooperative projects at the Iberian level, with a focus on the upcoming European Open Science Cloud (EOSC): challenges and opportunities for the Iberian region.

IBERGRID 2018 will run partially in parallel with Digital Infrastructures for Research - DI4R that takes place from 9th to 11th of October, hosted as well by LIP, and jointly organized by EOSC-Hub, GEANT and PRACE.


The list of topics of interest is:

  • Research communities at the Iberian level: examples of collaboration.

  • ESFRI projects in the Iberian area: LIFEWATCH, EMSO,SKA,...

  • Development of innovative software services oriented to the EOSC.

  • R&D for computing services, networking, and data-driven science at the Iberian level.

The event will consist of plenary, thematically oriented presentations by ESFRI / International Research communities in the landscape of the Iberian cooperation level, and key technology and infrastructure providers in the framework of the project EOSC-hub. The thematic presentations will be followed by a number of “lightning talks” by the participants.
