Report of the second FAIRDOM foundry

  1. 1. Systems Biology Data Management Foundry Workshop ERASysAPP – ERA-Net on Systems Biology Applications Monday, October 6, 2014, 11:00 h –19:15 h Tuesday, October 7, 2014, 9:00 h – 17:45 h @ Studio Villa Bosch Heidelberg Schloss-Wolfsbrunnenweg 35 69118 Heidelberg
  2. 2. FAIRDOM • Findable • Accessible • Interoperable • Reusable • Data • Operations • Models
  3. 3. Organisers & Participants Organisers: • Carole Goble (U Manchester, FAIRDOM) • Wolfgang Müller (HITS Heidelberg, FAIRDOM) • Bernd Rinn (ETH Zürich, FAIRDOM) • Dagmar Waltemath (U Rostock) Participants: 35 people based in 5 nations: UK, USA, Germany, Switzerland, Slovenia
  4. 4. Topics • Improve collaboration of Data Management (DM) practitioners • Look at opportunities in current landscape – ESFRIs – Large projects – Move from systems bio to synthetic bio and systems medicine • Move towards establishment of foundry
  5. 5. Concrete goals for the WS • Better understanding of >1 systems you‘ve never seen before • Generate ideas for cross-integration • Share ideas about sustainability • Form group of developers supported through FAIRDOM • Contribution to ESFRI ISBE – Needs? – What can the community provide?
  6. 6. Day 1: Talk by Neil Chue Hong Software is • everywhere • long-lived • hard to define All these matter: • Context • Reasons • People Hugely inspirational talk. Large set of surprising examples and solution approaches. Software carpentry, cultivating contributors for long-term maintenance. Hiring hard for old projects...
  7. 7. Day 1: Show and tell sessions Everybody sees systems presented by everyone else Starting point for collaborations Big topics: Docker, Galaxy + other workflow systems, data management adapting to changing data, semantics
  8. 8. Day 2: Discussions about landscape • Highlight ESFRI infrastructures as central entry point for infrastructure as well as software/legal/business model/security advice • ISBE as data integration facilitator, enabler, support broker • People as community and problem solvers • Teaching: Towards common certificates
  9. 9. Outcomes & suggested improvements • Outcome – Positive echo, participants report • having seen new software • seeing new collaboration opportunities – Public wiki for communication – Plan for next meeting (possibly Slovenia) • Suggested improvements: – More time for overall workshop‚ – Fewer, longer presentations in roughly same interactive format – More breaks for follow-up discussions – More information about other presentations up-front – Means: More selection of talks
  10. 10. Next meetings • We have funding for meetings held in Germany or UK. Foundry meetings can be part of this. • To internationalize Foundry it would be desirable if we could use that funding in other countries, e.g. Slovenia. • Very desirable would be funding for travel grants
