Hi Systems group!
We have a first contact with CERN :)
The European people had on and off a few contacts with CERN people in various meetings and grants
and we had the idea to contact them and establish a better connection.
Our main motivation was:
So we created a list with all people we know, contacted them and presented them the Galaxy project on a high level.
They seemed to be interested and surprised by the scope of and diversity of our users. They also presented these slides to us:
Now we have got this invitation:
As proposed in our December meeting, I followed up on a potential
presentation about big data in life sciences, Elixir and Galaxy
in the regular WLCG Grid Deployment Board (GDB) series:
The first opportunity would be Feb 9: could that work for you?
We would envisage a 30-minute slot with a talk of ~20 minutes
and ~10 minutes for questions: how does that sound?
You can check a few recent GDB meetings to see what kinds of topics
are presented there in which ways:
Nov - https://indico.cern.ch/event/876795/ Dec - https://indico.cern.ch/event/876796/ Jan - https://indico.cern.ch/event/1096026/ (under construction)
What do you all think about this. Could you put this on your next agenda?
What would you interest be in such a collaboration? Do you want to join? Should we offer them to have a cross
Galaxy-CERN Matrix channel ... please add all crazy ideas :)
Thanks for reading!
