E-Infrastructure Collaboration
   Abstract         This session will focus on giving an update on the status of the major European e-infrastructure initiatives, and also report on the collaboration possibilities that have been identified, both between the different e-infrastructure initiatives and between user communities and these initiatives. Sharing information and working towards interoperable services benefits the whole European research community as it results in more efficient service development and provision, and also better utilization of the available e-infrastructure. The presentations will be given by four European initiatives. Two of these initiatives, PRACE and EGI, have now been established as legal entities. The other two initiatives, Helix Nebula and EUDAT, have only been running officially for about a year and still have project status.

EUDAT Services: Safe Replication and Data Staging
   Abstract         The objective of this session is to present the two preliminary core services that the EUDAT Infrastructure will offer to its scientific communities. The first service, “Safe Replication”, enables communities to easily create replicas of their scientific datasets in multiple data centres for improving data curation and accessibility. The second core service, “Data Staging”, enables communities to stage stored data onto external computational facilities, such as HPC resources.

EUDAT Services: metadata
   Abstract         Cross-community access to data requires a "Joint Metadata Domain". This must include a common understanding of catalogue metadata, as well as the ability to bridge different ontologies and social name spaces. This session will focus on projects dealing with issues of this kind and look at examples of some of these projects. In addition, the EUDAT plans for solving these metadata-related problems will be introduced. There will also be a discussion comparing these plans to the inhomogeneous metadata situation currently existing among the EUDAT partners and other interested institutions.
