Securing Research Data

Securing Research Data - Santa Clara, CA

Researchers, computer scientists and data scientists from a range of disciplines are working with increasingly large, multi-dimensional datasets in the context of complex networks and computing infrastructure. Data generated by these advanced applications are often subject to an evolving landscape of protection requirements, due to the involvement of human subjects or critical physical infrastructure. At the same time, collaborative research projects and teams drive demand for large-scale distributed platforms that can move data and compute securely over high-speed networks and cyberinfrastructure. How do we secure the data, the network, and the computer to meet this challenge? This one-day workshop will convene researchers from a variety of disciplines who are leading these trends through their work in biology and medicine, public health and the social sciences, and other fields. In addition, IT service providers and security architects will describe new services and platforms being developed to provide secure research data management and computation capabilities at scale, while managing challenges of authentication, access control, and privacy protection. We will also present advanced theory on the tradeoffs between engineering systems for complexity and robustness, and how this tradeoff in itself can create fragility.

GRP Workshop 2019

The Global Research Platform Workshop - La Jolla, CA

Registration is now open for the Global Research Platform (GRP) Workshop, to be held 17-18 September 2019 at University of California San Diego. The website provides detailed information on the program, the venue and hotels in the vicinity. Registration is US $200 through August 15, 2019, and is US $300 starting August 16. The GRP Workshop has a number of informed keynote talks and panel sessions to stimulate discussions among attendees on a variety of topics, including application drivers, cyberinfrastructure, distributed data fabrics, data movement services, programmable networking, next-generation optical networking developments, and introductions to some of the evolving research platform initiatives taking place worldwide. The goal of this Workshop is to bring together network researchers, engineers and managers as well as application scientists to share best practices and advance the state of the art.

3NRP Workshop 2019

The Third National Research Platform Workshop - Minneapolis, MN

Building on the success of last year’s Second National Research Platform Workshop, the Third NRP Workshop will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on September 24-25, 2019 at the Renaissance Downtown Minneapolis – The Depot.

The NRP workshop will be co-located with the NSF PI workshop (9/23-9/25) and the Quilt meeting (9/25-9/26) with some shared sessions. A Global Research Platform (GRP) Workshop will be held the week prior to the NRP workshop and it will focus on international Research Platform topics. Information about the Third NRP Workshop, hotel/travel information and the co-located events can be found here.
