A new International Consortium on sustained data management is a planning a launch event at SC12. Called E-iRODS, the consortium will be formed by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and members of the Max Planck Society with a mission to develop Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) into a sustained, production-quality technology for data management, sharing, and integration.
SC12 will be our first chance to talk to research communities about their data challenges and how they could benefit from being involved in the E-iRODS Consortium,” said Charles Schmitt, director of data initiatives at RENCI. “We invite any group looking for data solutions—whether they are current iRODS users or not—to attend this reception.”
Participants in SC12 interested in learning more about the E-iRODS Consortium are encouraged to attend the presentation “Enterprise iRODS and the E-iRODS Consortium,” in the RENCI/North Carolina booth (3640) at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, or 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14. Additionally, an informational reception about iRODS and E-iRODS will be held from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, in the Solitude Room at the Salt Lake Marriott Downtown, across the street from the Salt Palace Convention Center.
