ESFRI sets up Strategy Working Group on Data, Computing and Digital Research Infrastructures

ESFRI, the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures, has announced that it has decided to proceed in establishing a Strategy Working Group on Data, Computing and Digital Research Infrastructures (SWG DIGIT) to deal with the evaluation of novel proposals with a dominant, or substantial, digital research infrastructure character. This type of proposals has been proposed to the 2018 ESFRI Roadmap. In setting up this Strategy Working Group, ESFRI is completing the set of SWGs for the identified areas of Research Infrastructures of the Roadmap.

The Strategy Working Group on Data, Computing and Digital Research Infrastructures is to be chaired by Professor Ana Proykova. At its establishment, it consists of the current e-Infrastructures experts of the other five SWGs, Sergio Girona (ES), Norbert Meyer (PL), Arjen Van Rijn (NL), Francoise Genova (FR) and Panos Argyrakis (GR), and up to nine members proposed by the ESFRI Forum, as well as European Commission representatives.

Nestum Maintenance

Due to a reconfiguration of the system’s networking, the machine will be unavailable tomorrow, 24.08.2017 from 14:00 GMT+2 to 16:00 GMT+2. As of this evening (23.08) all nodes are set to a DRAIN state, meaning that existing jobs will run, but no new jobs can be started. Unfortunately, if the job does not terminate until 14:000 GMT+2 on the 24th, then your data will be lost. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Magnetism of bilayer graphene with vacancies

Research held at the HPC lab in the Sofia Tech Park has demonstrated that vacancies in bilayer graphene can be used for controllable magnetization of the material. The results will be presented at the European Advanced Materials Congress (EAMC), which is a principal annual international conference in the field organised by International Association of Advanced Materials and VBRI Sverige AB during 22 – 24 August 2017, Stockholm, Sweden.
