ESCAPE - The European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle Physics ESFRI Research Infrastructures has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement no. 824064.
We are pleased to announce that the ESCAPE Final Event will take place between 25 and 26 October 2022, at the Royal Belgium Institute of Natural Sciences, located in Brussels (Belgium). The event is open to all and free of charge.
The 21st edition of ACAT will bring together computational experts from a wide range of disciplines, including particle-, nuclear-, astro-, and accelerator-physics as well as high performance computing. Through this unique forum, we will explore the areas where these disciplines overlap with computer science, fostering the exchange of ideas related to cutting-edge computing, data-analysis, and theoretical-calculation technologies.
There are numerous opportunities for impressive global science, but more and more of these opportunities require the worldwide interoperation of digital infrastructures that deliver compute, storage, and network services and scientific environments designed to deposit and exploit digital assets.
The European Astronomical Society (EAS) Annual Meeting (formerly known as EWASS, and earlier JENAM) has more than 25 years of tradition and it has imposed itself as the largest conference for European astronomy.
The VO (Virtual Observatory) is set of standards and tools for data interoperability within astronomy. In the scope of the ESCAPE, the ESCAPE VO connects the data published on ESFRI to the EOSC using the VO.
Stephen Serjeant, Astronomy Professor at Open University and leader of ESCAPE Engagement and Communication Work Package, was invited as ESCAPE representative to chair roundtable discussions on both open science and citizen science.
After the ESCAPE kickoff meeting in February 2019, a 1st Progress Meeting in February 2020, and a 2nd in September 2021, this one-day General Assembly only, taking place on 25th May 2022, will bring together the ESCAPE General Assembly members and ESCAPE External Expert Advisory Board members.
