“Bring your science to the web and the web to your science”


Overview and objectives

The e-Research Summer Hackfest will be held at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Catania on July, 4-15, 2016.

The event is co-sponsored by the Sci-GaIA, INDIGO-DataCloud, and COST ENeL projects.

The main objective of the event is to integrate scientific use cases through a pervasive adoption of web technologies and standards and make them available to their end users through Science Gateways (entities connected to distributed computing, data and services of interest to the Community of Practice the end users belong to). Promoting and fostering open and reproducible research will be the ultimate goal of the hackfest.    


The following topics will be tackled during the eResearch Summer Hackfest:

  • Big Data analytics;

  • Distributed computing services;

  • Distributed storage services;

  • Programmable access to Open Data repositories;

  • Semantic federation of Open Access repositories;

  • User interfaces (web, desktop, mobile, etc.);

  • Workflows.

Tools and technologies

The following tools and technologies will be showcased at the e-Research Summer Hackfest and used to implement the proposed use cases:
