ONLINE – Pre-Conference Session
10:00—13:30 CST Led by: TBD, Globus

For those new to Globus we encourage you to join our online session in advance of the conference. This introductory session is intended to provide you with an overview of Globus to better prepare you for the in-person sessions.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Introduction to Globus for Researchers and New Users: This is a high-level survey of the extensive research capabilities available on the Globus platform, aimed at researchers. We will describe common use cases and demonstrate how to get started with data transfer and sharing, using Globus Connect Personal on your laptop.
  • Introduction to Globus for System Administrators: We will provide an overview of the process for installing and configuring Globus Connect Server to make your storage system(s) accessible via Globus. This is aimed at system administrators who will be responsible for their institution's Globus deployment.
  • Enabling Data FAIRnesswith Globus: We will review best practices for sharing active data among collaborators and describe how the Globus platform can facilitate data description, publication, and discovery.

We will present an overview of Globus services for automating research computing and data management tasks, to accelerate research process throughput. This session is aimed at system administrators and researchers who wish to automate repetitive data management tasks (such as data distribution to collaborators), as well as those working with instruments (cryoEM, next-gen sequencers, fMRI, etc.) who wish to streamline data egress, downstream analysis, and sharing at scale. The material in this session will serve as an introduction to more advanced topics that will be covered in the deep dive session tomorrow.

Abstract coming soon

Jonathan Ozik, Senior Computational Scientist, Argonne National Laboratory

COVID-19 had an unprecedented impact on scientific collaboration. The pandemic and its broad response from the scientific community has forged new relationships among public health practitioners, mathematical modelers, and scientific computing specialists, while revealing critical gaps in exploiting advanced computing systems to support urgent decision making. Informed by our team’s work in applying high-performance computing in support of public health decision makers during the COVID-19 pandemic, we present how Globus technologies are enabling the development of an open science platform for robust epidemic analysis, with the goal of collaborative, secure, distributed, on-demand, and fast time-to-solution analyses to support public health.
