Conference

The format of the conference will be dynamic and interactive, engaging the audience and ensuring lively and animated discussions. The opening day includes plenary sessions on e-Infrastructure for high-energy physics, digital humanities, and cloud computing, some sessions will include panel discussions.

The second and final day includes sessions on data services and technologies, and bio- and medical sciences.

Workshops

In the days before the conference, workshops on center operations, data services, science gateways, security, and services for bioinformatics will be hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

Below you will find the programme for both the workshops held on 13 - 14 May and the conference which will run on 15 - 16 May.
