Globus update for IT professionals in NZ

In this webinar Kyle Chard and Ian Foster will share what new/ exciting things you can expect from Globus. This will be part presentation and part Q&A session and is designed for people who are the 'Globus contacts' at their respective institutions.

Globus is a research data management service developed by the University of Chicago, and used by thousands of researchers at institutions around the world. In this webinar we will provide a brief description of Globus, describe progress on Globus Connect Server v5, and present new and upcoming Globus platform services including Globus Automate, Globus Search, and funcX. The webinar will be targeted at system administrators who have deployed (or are planning to deploy) Globus at their institution, developers building applications for research, and anyone who is interested in learning more about using Globus for research data management.

About the presenters

Kyle and Ian co-lead the Globus Labs research group and are interested in a broad range of research problems in distributed systems, data-intensive computing, learning systems, and research data management. They are particularly interested in exploring theoretical concepts in systems and developing implementations that are usable by a wide range of people.

Kyle Chard - I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago and a researcher at Argonne National Laboratory. My research focuses on developing new systems to address various computational and data-intensive problems.

Ian Foster - In my research, I seek to develop tools and techniques that allow people to use high-performance computing technologies to do qualitatively new things. This involves investigations of parallel and distributed languages, algorithms, and communication; and also focused work on applications. I am particularly interested in using high-performance networking to incorporate remote compute and information resources into local computational environments.
