The workshops’ origin

In August 2013 IT Services chatted with their colleagues from CERN at the ownCloud-Workshop in Berlin. Likewise, CERN evaluated ownCloud as ‘Sync & Share Memory’ and has been offering this ownCloud based solution as a service since 2014. As well as at CERN, this memory has been successfully developed at ETH Zurich and the users’ reactions were enthusiastic. In November 2014 CERN invited for the first ‘Cloud Services for Synchronisation and Sharing’ (CS3) workshop. Due to the huge international interest of IT-colleagues a continuation of the workshop was taken into consideration. Soon the idea of ETH Zurich being the next venue came up. And it was realized: On Monday, January 18th and Tuesday, January 19th the second CS3 – Workshop is going to take place at ETH Zurich. We are looking forward to talking about this interesting topic with our IT-colleagues at the workshop. The program offers a lot of captivating lectures. (Registration required)
