The SMP PRESOFT model is now available in DMP OPIDoR platform

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.

8th DIRAC User Workshop

DIRAC

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.

DIRAC system for EGI communities webinar

Logo EGI.eu
EGI.eu

On the 7th of June (next Tuesday) from 3pm Amsterdam time, Andrei Tsaregorodtsev (CNRS) and Victor Mendez (UoBarcelona) will give the next EGI Webinar, titled DIRAC system for EGI communities.

Further information and connection link is available at https://indico.egi.eu/indico/event/2978/
Event abstract:

The DIRAC Project is providing a framework for building distributed computing systems and applications with high computating and storage/data demands. Services based on this framework are available for the EGI users since 2014 (at http://dirac.egi.eu/). during the webinar the main capabilities of the system will be introduced and demonstrated.

The DIRAC4EGI service includes a powerful Workload and Data Management System that is able to handle user payloads running on any EGI grid and cloud resource, as well as on other computing resources (such as institutional clusters). The key capabilities of the system are:

– The DIRAC job scheduler uses the “pilot job” paradigm which ensures high efficiency and fast turn-around of user tasks both on local and on remote computers.
– A versatile File Catalog component keeps track of file locations and replicas and allows the description of data with user defined metadata for efficient data searches.
– Services are accessible with friendly user interfaces: a Web Portal, a rich set of command line tools and a Python API. Through these interfaces the user can ineract with distributed resources as they were a single large computer.
– A RESTful service interface is also available for the use by existing application gateways and portals.
