www.gisela-grid.eu Grid Initiatives for e-Science virtual communities in Europe and Latin America WP2 - Dissemination and Outreach Achievements Herbert Hoeger (WP2 Manager) - ULA (Venezuela) Ysabel Briceo (WP2 Deputy Manager) - ULA (Venezuela) Final Project Review Brussels, 11/10/2012 Slide 2 www.gisela-grid.eu 2 Reminder WP2 Objectives Achievements & Perspectives Organisation of events Dissemination Material Web-site / Internet-based outreach Answers to Reviewers recommendation Handover Status Conclusions Outline GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 Slide 3 www.gisela-grid.eu The main purpose of WP2 is to publicise and disseminate the scope of the project and the grid technology. In parallel, work will be done to identify communities of researchers who can benefit from joining/creating virtual organisations and from the GISELA grid e Infrastructure and encourage/aid them to use it. WP2 will closely cooperate with other GISELA activities, in particular with WP3, WP4 and WP5. (from the DoW) Dissemination accomplishments (see D2.2 & D2.3) Organisation of events Decision Makers meetings, Conference, Workshops, Training events, Virtual meetings Production of Dissemination material Bulletins, Flyers, Factsheets, Poster, Briefings, Press articles Web site / Internet-based outreach Hot News, Publications Menu, Press Room and Citations Event announcements (GISELA and related events) Twitter & Flickr accounts to report and illustrate all events linked to GISELA Contacting users Contribution to the GSG 3 WP2 Objectives GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 Slide 4 www.gisela-grid.eu Decision Makers Meetings The purpose of these meetings was to promote and make the Project known to Decision Makers with the view to get their future support By videoconference, with the Directors of Information Technologies in LA in November 2011 At the plenary sessions with RedCLARA partners (Montevideo, Uruguay, in November 2011) At the Joint GISELA-CHAIN Conference (Mexico City, 27 th to 29 th June 2012) during which the Mexico Declaration was signed At TICAL 2012 (Conference of Directors of Information Technology and Communication of Latin American Universities), where Costa Rica joined the Mexico Declaration (Lima, Peru, 2 nd and 3 rd July 2012) GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 4 Slide 5 www.gisela-grid.eu Virtual Meetings The purpose of these meetings was to raise awareness of, and inform on, the different opportunities that Advanced Services can bring to LA Research communities and to detect and contact potential beneficiaries of the e-Infrastructure La e-ciencia como propuesta para resolver problemas regionales Sesin con redes acadmicas nacionales de Amrica Latina (October 27 th, 2011) Sesin con expertos (October 28 th, 2011) Sesin con Directores de Tecnologas e Informacin de Amrica Latina (November 1 st, 2011) Sesin con comunidades de gestin e investigacin en prevencin de riesgos y temas ssmicos (November 3 rd, 2011) Da Virtual de Cultura (March 28 th, 2012) Da Virtual de e-Infraestructura (May 8 th, 2012) WP2 helped WP3 to disseminate the GISELA Science Gateway (GSG) Virtual Meetings GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 5 Slide 6 www.gisela-grid.eu Dissemination Material Abundant Dissemination material has been produced to advertise the Project progress, results, publications, etc. Edition of the GISELA Bulletins Five editions: February and October 2011 April, July and August 2012 that have been released during the 2nd project-year (PDF - English and Spanish). The last one being a Goodbye to the project Special edition (February 2012): Environment 2.0 for access to Advanced Computing Resources Production of Promotional Material Portfolio for the Advanced Computing Services model Flyers About GISELA; On the use of the Science Gateway; On the Joint GISELA-CHAIN Conference. Publications 78 publications are reported in the GISELA Web site GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 6 Slide 7 www.gisela-grid.eu GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 7 Web site / Internet-based Outreach The GISELA Dissemination has been widely based on Web sites (General & Specific) and other Web-2 Services Active Web sites: Main Site: http://www.gisela-grid.eu/http://www.gisela-grid.eu/ Hot News, Publications, Outreach, Web statistics Document Server: http://documents.gisela-grid.eu/http://documents.gisela-grid.eu/ Event Server: http://indico.gisela-grid.eu/http://indico.gisela-grid.eu/ GISELA Web Bulletin: http://www.cecalc.ula.ve/giselahttp://www.cecalc.ula.ve/gisela Science Gateway: http://gisela-gw.ct.infn.it/http://gisela-gw.ct.infn.it/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/gisela_gridhttp://twitter.com/gisela_grid Flickr : http://www.flickr.com/photos/gisela_grid/http://www.flickr.com/photos/gisela_grid/ Also used to inform about GISELA: e-mail lists, GridCast, iSGTW, Press Room of Partner Institutions & NRENs GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 Slide 8 www.gisela-grid.eu Supporting other Work packages WP2 contributed to the achievements of other Work Packages Organisation of GISELA events With WP1 Joint GISELA Conference, Mexico City, 27 th to 29 th June 2012 CLARA-TT f2f Meeting, Bucaramanga (Colombia), 14 th to 16 th November 2011 With WP3 Support and training for CEDIA system administrators (Ecuador, January 2012) Virtual meetings to integrate applications in the GSG (started on February 2012) Grid Computing Seminar for end-users (Mexico, May 2012) Latin America "special" 2012 - Joint CHAIN/GISELA School for Grid Site Administrators (Colombia, May-June 2012) Latin America "special" 2012 - Joint CHAIN/GISELA School for Application Porting to Science Gateway (Colombia, June 2012) Latin America 2012 - Joint CHAIN/GISELA/EPIKH School for Application Porting to Science Gateway (Mexico, June 2012) Design & realisation of the new graphic layout of the GISELA Science Gateway Interaction with Regional Communities, in collaboration with the CLARA-TT GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 8 Slide 9 www.gisela-grid.eu GISELA-CHAIN Conference (1/2) The GISELA- CHAIN Conference 27 th - 29 th June 2012 (UNAM, Mexico City) has been the culminating event of GISELA Highlights 83 on site participants; UNAM webcasted the conference (366 connexions reported during the three days) 10 Keynote talks; 8 sessions: 2 on Sustainability and 6 for presentations with 29 talks Information on the event was constantly distributed through: Twitter (@gisela_grid with hashtag #GiselaChainMX); GridCast ; iSGTW ; Mailing lists; Press Rooms of institutions and NRENs: CEDIA, CENAT, CUDI, INNOVA|RED, RAAP, RedCLARA, RENATA, REUNA, RNP, SECIU and UNAM.

Differentiate the feedback from different user groups and aim to identify ambassadors in the different communities in order to benefit from a multiplier effect. Ambassadors might be per region, per university or per application community or a mixture of all. Observation (confirmed by the WP2 survey) Users from small communities, too frequently prefer to continue working within their familiar, although limited, computing environment Reasons: The complex user interfaces and Security Infrastructure are obstacles to a larger uptake GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 12 Slide 13 www.gisela-grid.eu GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 13 Review recommendation: Interact with users (2/2) The GISELA Science Gateway as an approach to overcome the barrier (see the WP3 talk) WP2, in collaboration with the CLARA TT and WP3, has established a process for the user/partner feedback collection through Virtual Meetings to better know User groups Webinars to disseminate DCI technology This interaction, especially with Regional Communities, has given rise to the concept of Advanced Computing Services Based on the GISELA Science Gateway Responding to all Users needs as gathered from the interaction with them Result: The dissemination of the ACS model has been done, thanks to the GISELA Technical Coordinator who, personally, disseminated the model in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama and Venezuela The Dissemination was conducted via mailing lists and NREN Press rooms: http://www.gisela-grid.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=25&Itemid=29 http://www.gisela-grid.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=25&Itemid=29 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 Slide 14 www.gisela-grid.eu Dissemination Handover Mexico Declaration: CUDI, RENATA, CEDIA, RedCONARE and INNOVA|RED will care of Advance Computing Services (ACS) dissemination under the coordination of CLARA The Dissemination strategy has alr
