CESSDA Expert Seminar & CESSDA Trust WG Workshop
26 – 27 September 2018, Faculty of Social Sciences, Ljubljana, Slovenia
The CESSDA Expert Seminar 2018 (CES2018) will take place on 26 September and cover two different topics, linked by the theme of ensuring common standards:
- The first half-day of the seminar focuses on CESSDA Technical Infrastructure and cloud computing.
- The second half-day then examines developing, testing and deploying CESSDA Tools and Services.
The seminar will focus on the CESSDA Technical Infrastructure, the development, testing and deployment of tools and services within the CESSDA Technical Infrastructure and trust support. It will do this by looking at the main features of the CESSDA Technical Infrastructure, the architectural guidelines and quality standards, the testing and deployment pipelines and the implementation details of some existing tools, such as the Data Catalogue, European Question Bank and/or Vocabulary Manager.
The CESSDA Trust WG Workshop will take place on 27 September and will be focused around a round table of technical implications of the CoreTrustSeal requirements, with special attention to requirements 15 (technical infrastructure) and 16 (security).
