Last chance to register for Developers' EuroCAMP on Research Infrastructure and Collaboration Environments
Register now for the Developers' EuroCAMP taking place in Utrecht on 13-14 December

Registration is open until Friday 2 November for a Developers' EuroCAMP on 13-14 December 2011. The event targets developers and implementers in organisations and campuses who are focused on supporting research infrastructure and are looking for solutions to manage identity and group collaboration issues. Areas covered at the event will include OpenID Connect, group management APIs (application programming interfaces) and their implementation, virtual organisation solutions and their integration into existing products, and practical 2-factor authentication.

The event is being organised by TERENA and SURFnet and will be held at the SURFnet offices in Utrecht, Netherlands.

This EuroCAMP is also of interest to federation operators and NRENs wanting to enrich the collaboration environments available to their institutional, research and industrial users. Developers and software architects working with new and emerging federation and research infrastructure solutions would also benefit from this meeting.

Desired outcomes include:

  • developing virtual organisation and group management lifecycle requirements for projects, products and frameworks;
  • recognising opportunities for collaborative solutions;
  • identifying opportunities for extending group management to a range of collaborative and research environments;
  • setting the direction for research infrastructure roadmaps focused on supporting federated access.

Participants should:

  • be engaged in solving identity, access, virtual organisation and group management problems important to their environments;
  • be prepared to collaborate with peers and leverage their participation in solving similar problems and identifying common integration solutions;
  • be prepared to develop requirements, solutions and use cases for areas of continued work;
  • examine a range of new and emerging technologies within the federation and research infrastructure space;
  • continue to advance the issues identified at this event throughout the coming year.

Featured topics and guests include:

  • Interoperable Global Trust Fabric - David Groep (EUGridPMA)

Collaborative Environments in MPI and CLARIN - Willem Elbers (Max Planck 
Institute for Psycholinguistics)

  • OpenID Connect - Don Thibeau & John Bradley (OpenID Foundation)

SURFconext & OpenConext - Maarten Kremers (SURFnet)
