ERN Architecture and Federation Virtual Workshop

December 2, 2020 December 4, 2020

The vision of the federated collaboratories will require the development of many layers of abstractions ranging from hardware, networking, federation architecture, scientific workflows, and domain-specific models and tools to enable collaborative discovery.  The ERN Architecture and Federation working group are focused on gathering information and discussing what the “federated collaboratory” might look like from both a hardware and software perspective as well as what federation should look like as we strive for a seamless collaborative sharing experience. 

As a member of the ERN community,  or attendee of the ERN All Hands Meeting in July, we invite you to participate in the Eastern Regional Network’s Architecture and Federation workshop December 2nd – 4th. The workshop is currently scheduled to cover the following topics: 

  •  authentication, authorization and access
  • data storage and transfer
  • network connectivity
  • federated infrastructures
  • science driver use cases  

Discussions following each session’s presentations will help in the understanding of how best to model the federated instrument promoting collaboration and scientific advancement. To participate in the workshop, please register here.
