Virtual Infrastructure for Scientific Analysis (VISA) Workshop https://pan-training.eu/materials/virtual-infrastructure-for-scientific-analysis-visa-workshop We invite you to view our workshop – hosted jointly by ExPaNDS and PaNOSC! VISA provides remote data analysis services giving access to experimental data, analysis software, compute infrastructure and expert-user support (IT and Scientific). The online half-day Workshop is open to all external stakeholders (especially scientists and IT staff but not limited to). We aim to demonstrate to beamline scientists the possibilities offered by VISA for data analysis and gathering IT staff around the table to discuss about the development and further deployment of the platform. VISA has been developed at a critical time (during the COVID-19 crisis) to answer data analysis needs and allowing remote instrument control. It provides simplified access for scientists to data analysis tools, offers remote support to users from experts and allows them to remotely control their experiments with the assistance of on-site instrument scientists. VISA allows a user to use the Remote Desktop as if they were sitting in front a data treatment workstation at the host institute and embeds JupyterLab directly accessible from the same platform interface. Initially developed at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France and further deployed in the context of PaNOSC, VISA enables the PaN research infrastructures (PaN RIs) to work together on further scientific collaborations to solve 21st century challenges. The first session of the workshop showcases the implementation of VISA at the PaN RIs through ExPaNDS and PaNOSC partner’ demos and illustrate its use for scientific users and others. The second session in the afternoon focuses on presentations on VISA development and deployment (on OpenStack and other infrastructures), paving the way for a roundtable discussion on the future of VISA: sustainability and future collaborations. Video recording (direct link to vimeo) will be available soon. VISA, expands, PaNOSC, remote data analysis services
Final recommendations for FAIR Photon and Neutron Data Management

Final recommendations for FAIR Photon and Neutron Data Management https://pan-training.eu/materials/final-recommendations-for-fair-photon-and-neutron-data-management The present deliverable pursues the work initiated in ExPaNDS deliverable 2.2, which established a common metadata framework for FAIR data generated in Photon and Neutron (PaN) facilities. The modalities of implementation of this framework across facilities are examined and current practices and tools for metadata capture, storage and exposure are highlighted. This work is also the occasion to examine the commonalities of the framework with other initiatives developed inside and outside ExPaNDS such as the common search API, the data catalogues (ExPaNDS WP3), the EOSC discovery platforms B2FIND and OpenAire as well as the NeXus data format. It also provides the reader with guidelines on current tools and schemata available to record provenance and digital preservation information. The essence of these discussions is summarised as a list of practical recommendations at the end. expands, wp2-ExPaNDS, FAIR, data management PaN Community
Advanced infrastructure for PIDs in Photon and Neutron RIs

This deliverable accumulates results of ExPaNDS works on the topic of persistent identifiers (PIDs) in facilities research. It refers to the substantial effort of persistent identifiers adoption in facilities and in a larger research ecosystem, and provides a general guidance, as well as...

Advanced infrastructure for PIDs in Photon and Neutron RIs https://pan-training.eu/materials/advanced-infrastructure-for-pids-in-photon-and-neutron-ris This deliverable accumulates results of ExPaNDS works on the topic of persistent identifiers (PIDs) in facilities research. It refers to the substantial effort of persistent identifiers adoption in facilities and in a larger research ecosystem, and provides a general guidance, as well as prioritised recommendations for research information practitioners who consider going beyond the current levels of persistent identifiers adoption by photon and neutron research infrastructures. persistent identifiers, wp2-ExPaNDS facility staff scientists
