European e-infrastructure for space weather

Booth 3, 06/11/2013 (16:00-17:30)

Space Weather has become a widely recognized and very important discipline throughout the world with well-documented societal and economic impacts. Reliable prediction depends on the access to multipoint and multisensor real-time data and their on-line processing based on physical models. European consortia formed around space scientists, ICT and e-science experts took over just a first step, developing ICT platforms for improving the access to heterogeneous space data. The session will discuss how a second step can be approached, that concerns the operation of a virtual environment where researchers can find and confidently use computing resources and software to mash up real-time data exploring multidisciplinary knowledge. The session will address one of the basic ICT themes concerning the access to information for excellent science, maximizing connectivity of existing e-infrastructures and adopting solutions that are based on open standards, best practices and agreed policies.
