JASMIN Conference 2016

Thanks for coming to the JASMIN user conference!

A big thank you to all who attended and contributed to our first JASMIN User Conference, held at RAL on 27/28 June 2016. Over two days, we shared information about the current scale and capabilities of JASMIN, heard about some of the data-intensive science going on right now, and learned about other environmental science challenges which could be helped by using JASMIN.

Workshop sessions helped new and existing users learn how to get the best out of JASMIN's processing and data transfer capabilities, and how scientific collaborations might go about managing their own computing infrastructures within the JASMIN Cloud. Discussions focussed on how scientific software might be managed by a community for its own and wider benefit, and learned about particular software tools developed around the JASMIN platform which help distil best practice and enable efficient scientific workflows.

We are currently analysing feedback from the event and will be posting further details here shortly. Based on that feedback, we hope to plan a variety of future events of different formats which we hope will encourage closer enagement with and among our user community and ensure that JASMIN continues to be a world-leading facility for data-intensive environmental science.
