ADCIs Workshop: Astronomical Workflows and Applications as test-beds and use-cases for different DCIs and Platforms

Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague (CZ)
17 September 2012

The workshop has been cancelled. An informal meeting will take place at the EGI TF 12 venue, close to the SCI-BUS project booth.

The Astronomical Community is now engaged in several European projects and initiatives whose goal is to provide powerful multi-disciplinary DCI platforms to be beneficial to many Scientific Communities. The main objective is to make access to them as much comfortable as possible to end users; powerful Science Gateways therefore will be put in production offering a rich set of tools and services so that end users can easily access resources of different types in a transparent way. The technological solutions used to set up such complex working environments require a strong test & validation phase to be performed against use-cases and test-beds provided by Scientific Communities. To this end, astronomical applications and workflows play an important role gven their complexity and being them highly demanding in terms of resources of different nature.

A significant harvesting effort therefore has to be spent now within the Astronomical Community aimed at selecting those applications and workflows more suitable to offer significant test-beds and use-cases to the multi-disciplinary platforms validators. The main pourpose of this workshop therefore is to meet Astronomical users and research groups able to provide such applications and workflows. If successful, this activity will imply a decisive burst for what concerns the usage of complex DCI platforms and working environments in the Astronomy & Astrophysics domain.

The workshop, organized in Prague in the same week of the EGI Technical Forum 2012, is focused on the following topics:

  • Gathering of astronomical workflows and applications to bring on different DCIs and Platforms.
  • Status of the Astronomical Heavy User Community (HUC) in EGI and activation of new astronomical VRCs.

Call for Workflows and Applications

People can propose astronomical workflows and applications to port on different DCIs and technological platforms. The proposed workflows will be briefly presented and discussed at the workshop. You can download the file containing a short introduction to the workshop and the forms to be filled in in order to contribute a specific workflow. If you have multiple workflows to contribute, please download multiple copies of the file, one for each contributed workflow.

You should try to fill in the forms and return the related files by Friday 7 September 2012 to allow organizers to have a complete list of contributed workflows at least one week before the workshop. This deadline however is not stringent, so it will be possible to send contributions also in the week preceding the event.

Files with compiled forms must be returned via email to Claudio Vuerli, as specifyied at the beginning of the file.


If you plan to participate to the workshop, please download and fill in the participation file. Once filled in, return the file via email to Claudio Vuerli


The Astro Workshop is organized at the Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague (CZ)
