A Software Management Plan (SMP) model have been developped in the PRESOFT (Preservation for REsearch SOFTware) project.
This model is now available in French and in English via the DMP OPIDoR platform run by INIST. You now can use it in a collaborative way with different access rights for the team members.
To access the model in DMP OPIDoR, ask for an account, then create your plan, click on “Not applicable/not listed” at the funder choice level and then select the “PRESOFT projet” organisation.
Your have now the choice between the French speaking version “Plan de
Gestion de Logiciel de la Recherche (Projet PRESOFT)”and the English speaking version
“Research Software Management Plan template (PRESOFT project)” template.
Please do not forget to export the successive finalised versions in your local workspace in your laboratory as the archiving functionality is currently not provided by DMP OPIDoR: you can “Export your plan” in a document format such as pdf or docx for example.
The 8th DIRAC User Workshop, will take place May 22nd-25th in Lyon, France. CC-IN2P3 will host the event. A preliminary agenda will be set up in https://indico.cern.ch/event/676817/. The registration to the event is already open. We will try to keep participation to the workshop free of charge.
The workshop will start in the late morning of Tuesday, May 22nd (May 21st is holiday in France) and at least the last day, of Friday 25th will be fully dedicated to hacking sessions, and Q&A.
The workshop will be devoted to information exchange between DIRAC developers, service administrators and users. New users, as well as experienced administrators and developers are welcome in the workshop.
As for previous years, communities will be asked to report about their use of DIRAC. Tutorials on administration and development, as well as a public hacking session will be part of the program.
As always, we encourage everybody to suggest items to the workshop agenda.
