    Publicado em October 14th, 2011News

    Vinicius Garcia, professor at CIn-UFPE, will attend the kick-off meeting of the EU-Brazil Open Data and Cloud Computing e-Infrastructure for Biodiversity (OpenBio) project at Microsoft Executive Briefing Center for European Innovation building, Brussels (Belgium) in the period of October 17-19. During this meeting, a workshop will take place and Vinicius will give a talk on the use of gCube and P2P technology to implement an e-Infrastructure to Data as a Service in the context of CRIA (Centro de Referência em Informação Ambiental) scenario. This work is in collaboration with Rodrigo Assad, Ph.D. candidate at UFPE and System Engineer at CESAR and others institutions: CRIA (Brazil), BARCELONA SUPERCOMPUTING CENTER – CENTRO NACIONAL DE SUPERCOMPUTACION (Spain), CONSIGLIO NAZIONALE DELLE RICERCHE (Italy), TRUST-IT SERVICES LTD (United Kingdom), UNIVERSIDAD POLITECNICA DE VALENCIA (Spain), Species 2000 (Spain), CESAR (Brazil), RNP (Brazil), UFF (Brazil) and UFPE (Brazil).

    The OpenBio project is the first large-scale effort in order to specify, design, implement, deploy and test the theory and practice of Social Machines, as can be stated in the project S.Ma.R.T – Social Machines Research Team. OpenBio is also an opportunity to raise more funds for the projects of Social Machines and Cloud Computing from the INES.

    The main goal of EUBrazilOpenBio is to deploy an e-Infrastructure of open access resources (data, tools, services), to make significant strides towards supporting the needs and requirements of the biodiversity scientific community. This data e-Infrastructure will result from the federation and integration of substantial individual existing data, cloud, and grid EU and Brazilian infrastructures and resources across the biodiversity & taxonomy domain namely Catalogue of Life, OpenModeller, D4Science-II and Venus-C.
