Robert Jenkins (CloudSigma) will present Helix Nebula - the Science Cloud at the "Cloud Expo Europe", 29-30 January 2013, London.
Ian Bird (CERN) will represent the demand-side partners of the Helix Nebula project in the same event.
Global positioning and satellite navigation systems, as well as space-based telecommunications systems and earth, ocean and atmosphere observation and surveillance, know no frontier other than those imposed by their own technological limits.
This high-level European event organised by the Helix Nebula consortium is part of an overall cloud computing initiative which aims to build a cloud computing platform offering a unique resource to governments, businesses and citizens. Participants will have the unique opportunity to interact with cloud computing experts, SMEs, representatives of the European Commission and leading research centres. Each participant will actively contribute to shaping the overall cloud strategy and provide feedback and suggestions on the results achieved during the proof of concept stage.
Maryline Lengert (ESA) will be speaking at the DatacenterDynamics on 28 November 2012 in Rome.
DatacenterDynamics Rome is specifically designed to fill the knowledge and networking needs for both those responsible for the design, build an operation of IT facilities as well as key IT decision makers responsible for strategic decisions regarding capacity planning and technology investment.
CERN will represent Helix Nebula at the EC workshop "Towards an EU strategy of Cloud computing for government and science", Brussels, 26 November 2012. The European Commission encouraged Helix Nebula to pursue the hybrid model (mixed public/private resources/services for the federated cloud) and to provide big-data related services.
