Agenda for the 31 August meeting
- Nick Jones introduces the NZ eResearch Symposium, 26-27 October 2010
- Jonathan Flutey describes how Victoria University is rolling out the new KAREN Video Conferencing Service
- Aaron Hicks from Landcare Research presents service ideas
- Purpose of future KSWG meetings/brainstorming KAREN promotion
Outline of Aaron’s presentation
A document repository or web application portal similar to Google Docs (i.e. KAREN Docs). Many members of BeSTGRID/KAREN have their own internal repositories, but each institution has its own solution and are often closed to external access (esp. for those of use forced to use SharePoint due to Microsoft licensing restrictions which require extra license fees for external users, and prohibit implementing a ‘competing’ solution).
A code repository similar to GitHub, Gitorious or Google Code. We have some projects where scientific models have external contributors (and consumers) who are wary of using public repositories.
The assumption would be that these services would use the BeSTGRID authentication systems, or the services put up by the MoRST IAM project.
