E.g.: http://knowledge.eu-egi.eu/index.php/User_Requirements Carrying out a review process to integrate useful external software an extension of the EGEE RESPECT program Establishing Science Gateways that expose common tools and services (e.g.

workflow engines, web services, semantic annotation) Establishing technical collaborations with the large European Infrastructure projects (e.g. ESFRI) Providing umbrella services for collaborating projects Maintaining a European Grid Application Database e.g. http://grid.ct.infn.it/egee_applications Organising User Forum meetings and topical meetings for specific user communities. Providing services for new communities e.g. Front desk services, VO creation counseling, etc. Ensuring that the user communities and grid administrators are provided with high quality documentation and training services.

An SSC is a (physical) centre where grid-related activities are carried out, and which includes a set of UCS (User Community Services) activities 2. An SSC is a cluster of UCS activities Either way, an SSC is envisioned to have a european-level commitment, and will be represented in EGI on several levels

An SSC should have a delegate to participate in what we call the User Forum Steering Committee (see below) SSCs should interact closely with the central EGI.org UCS team (described in the EGI Blueprint) Two examples a large and a small SSC are sketched below; these are ideas to inspire some specific proposals by the user communities See also http://knowledge.eu-egi.eu/index.php/Specialised_Support_Centres EGEE-III INFSO-RI-222667 Monday 25 May 2009 - A&A Transition to EGI 7 Example of a Large SSC Enabling Grids for E-sciencE EGI general SSC X SSC Chair (UF delegate) Other UC Svces: RESPECT App DB EGI User Forum

NGIs expected to support A&A SSC (support in the sense that they will commit to provide manpower and/or other resources) At a first stage all NGIs that include A&A groups currently active in EGEE-III A&A cluster: Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Netherlands, UK, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia Current collaborating projects Planck, Magic, LOFAR, AUGER ESFRI Projects A&A SSC is expected to be working with It is expected to work at least with ELT (Extremely Large Telescope) and SKA (Square Kilometer Array) A&A projects, but also with PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) Collaborating projects are already actively involved in the EGEEIII A&A cluster Contacts have to be initialized with ESFRI projects instead EGEE-III INFSO-RI-222667 Monday 25 May 2009 - A&A Transition to EGI 1 SSC Governance Enabling Grids for E-sciencE It is foreseen to have a SC (Steering Committee) composed by one representative for each NGI that supports the SSC. A SC Chair will be nominated within

the SC. Other technical SSC bodies (GPB, UTS and Front Desk) have to be confirmed One of the main goals of the SSC is to consolidate the presence of the astronomical community in EGI, but also to expand it by progressively involving astronomical institutes/groups of all NGIs. As the SSC expands it is expected that all NGIs will support it and consequently will have a member in the SC EGEE-III INFSO-RI-222667 Monday 25 May 2009 - A&A Transition to EGI 1 SSC Technical Organization Enabling Grids for E-sciencE Will the SSC have its own Grid Planning Board (i.e. local MCB), and if so, would you be interested in having specialized representatives from the middleware consortia and operations (e.g. a development coordinator specifically assigned to your thematic area)? At present the structure proposed for the SSC includes a GPB; the SSC structure however has to be further discussed and approved by partners of the A&A cluster. If the GPB will be created within our SSC, it is expected that specialized representatives coming from the middleware consortia and from operations will be part of it .

If you are planning a scientific gateway/portal, do you expect to sustain it entirely within the SSC, or do you expect some dedicated assistance from EGI (e.g. within the Operations budget)? Some dedicated assistance from EGI is expected in this case EGEE-III INFSO-RI-222667 Monday 25 May 2009 - A&A Transition to EGI 1 Relations with other SSCs Enabling Grids for E-sciencE Which other SSCs can you envision having contact with? We plan to closely keep in touch with all SSCs of disciplinary clusters currently in EGEE-III, namely: HEP, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Grid Observatory, Computational Chemistry, Fusion EGEE-III INFSO-RI-222667 Monday 25 May 2009 - A&A Transition to EGI 2 SSC Evolution Enabling Grids for E-sciencE

Do you have a timetable for the evolution of the SSC? Yes, until April 2010 (end of EGEE-III). The related timetable is shown in the next slide How do you expect the SSC to function in 2 - 4 years? Starting from May 2010 the main goal of the SSC is to expand and consolidate at the same time the presence of the astronomical community in EGI. This implies a growing number of astronomical research groups from all NGIs that routinely use the grid to run their applications and requires: An intense training/dissemination activity The consolidation of the A&A-related VOs currently in place (in terms of contributed resources, registered users, etc.) and, when necessary, the creation of new ones Close contacts and collaborations with other disciplinary SSCs, with horizontal SSCs to exploit their tools/services and in general with EGI.org bodies and contributing NGIs EGEE-III INFSO-RI-222667 Monday 25 May 2009 - A&A Transition to EGI 2 SSC Timing Enabling Grids for E-sciencE Month
