“Where the EOSC makers & shakers meet”

The EOSC Symposium is one of the largest, yearly EOSC events. It is co-organised by the EOSCsecretariat project and the main ICT eInfrastructures initiatives, namely, EOSC-hub, GEANT, OpenAIRE and PRACE in collaboration with the EOSC Governance Board, Executive Board and its Working Groups (Architecture, FAIR, Landscape, Rules of Participation, Sustainability.) The event will see two intense and stimulating days for all stakeholders to contribute to discussion on the implementation of the EOSC. The EOSC Symposium represents a fundamental milestone in the EOSC roadmap. It builds on the legacy of the former Digital Infrastructure for Research (DI4R) event series and the EOSC Stakeholder Forum events organised by the EOSCPilot project.

Taking place from the 26th to the 28th of November 2019, in Budapest, Hungary, at the stunning Danubius Hotel Helia, the EOSC Symposium will bring together the shakers and makers in the growing EOSC community.

The EOSC Symposium 2019 will be co-located with the EOSC Coordination day (28-29 November 2019). Open only to EOSC related projects, the event is a follow up of the joint RTD - CNECT concertation meeting that took place in Brussels on 9-10 of September 2019. It will provide a platform for projects foster collaboration and address challenges together. The agenda of the EOSC Coordination day will be published soon.

Regarding ESCAPE contribution to EOSC, maybe ESCAPE members are actively involved in the EOSC Architecture Working group. Their contributions is based on the innovation of distributed computing infrastructures and new computing architectures, e.g. federated computing infrastructures in the WLCG and EGEE/EGI initiatives, as well as national integrated supercomputing facilities (i.e. HPC centres, DiRAC, PRACE, etc). ESCAPE partners have direct involvement of ESFRI and other world-class projects to bring together software, services as well as datasets from telescopes, detectors and accelerators to develop a unique multi-messenger and cross-domain repository along with a science platform for fundamental science.
