Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: Information Technology Center 105A/B
Speaker: ITS-CI and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC)

 ITS-CI and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) will be co-hosting
a hands-on workshop and a public seminar on the AGAVE
science-as-a-service platform for supporting collaborative, computation
and data intensive research projects.

Workshop: Wednesday 4/13 9:30 - 4:30PM - ITC 105A/B
Public Seminar: Thursday 4/14 11AM - 12PM - ITC 105A/B

The Workshop is targeted at users (and those who manage data and compute
for others) who wish to deploy scripts and software within one or more
iPlant/CyVerse ( platforms for doing computation
to further their research. We will use a hackathon-style approach to
using the Agave APIs, and will adapt to the interests and use cases of
the attendees.


Agave is an open source, platform-as-a-service for virtualized cloud
computing and data management that is powering a number of current
community science gateways including:

  * CyVerse, ( which provides life scientists
    with powerful computational infrastructure to handle huge datasets
    and complex analyses that enable data-driven discovery,
  * the Arabidopsis information portal , Araport (
  * BioExtract ( open, web-based system
    designed to aid researchers in the analysis of genomic data by
    providing a platform for the creation of bioinformatic workflows.

"We are currently partnering with TACC on an NSF Grant for Agave
