Meet ETH Scientific IT Services

ETH Scientific IT Services (ITS SIS) will hold two information events in November. These events will give an overview of how SIS supports modern research through the provision of scientific computing services such as computing clusters, data management and software development.

Events

  1. The first event is on Wednesday the 15th November 2017 in the ETH central campus (Zentrum):

Subjects and topics

Attendees will be able to hear first-hand how SIS has helped a number of researchers in a one-hour session of flash talks that will give a flavour of what SIS is and what it does. It will include the following presentations:

  • Introduction on ITS SIS
  • High Performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data Analytics
  • Data Visualisation
  • Research Data management
  • Custom software development
  • Support for scientific code
  • Personalised health
  • Data Pipelines (e.g. using software containers)
  • Bioinformatics co-analysis and workflows with HPC

Following these presentations, there will be an informal booth-style coffee break. The booths will be a mix of live demos and information points, and are an ideal opportunity for attendees to chat freely about their scientific computing and research IT challenges in a relaxed environment with members of the SIS team.

The booths will be centred on the following topics:

  • Data Visualisation and High Performance Computing
  • openBIS Electronic Lab Notebook live demo
  • Live demo on a web service we built for a systems biology project
  • Training, consulting and easy access to scientific computing
