Workshop: FAIR Data Principles in Physical Sciences in NFDI

Next workshop on use cases in the NFDI, presented by Physical Sciences in NFDI (PSinNFDI)

While different disciplines experience different challenges in establishing the FAIR principles for research data, there are also many similar approaches and solutions. In this workshop, we will present examples of use cases highlighting those common concepts, tools, and software that exploit workflows to achieve FAIR data across scientific disciplines. FAIR data does not start in a repository, but needs to be established already during the data generation within a research process. Hence, we invite you to join us in exploring tools and approaches to create FAIR workflows with fascinating use cases from:

  • PUNCH4NFDI: Curating Data Flows: Leveraging REANA for Reproducible Analyses of Dimensionality Reduction Workflows
  • NFDI-MatWerk: Creating and running automated workflows for material science simulations
  • DAPHNE4NFDI: Overarching Data Management Ecosystem HELIPORT

European Coalition for AI in fundamental Physics

EuCAIF is an European initiative for advancing the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Fundamental Physics. Members are working on particle physics, astroparticle physics, nuclear physics, gravitational wave physics, cosmology, theoretical physics as well as simulation and computational infrastructure.

The JENAA site was established after the Joint ECFA-NuPECC-APPEC Seminar (JENAS) at Orsay, that allowed astroparticle, nuclear and particle physics researchers to peek into each other’s activities. The identified
overlapping challenges might transform via joint programs into stronger opportunities to further our understanding of both the smallest and the largest structures in nature.

 

Past Events:

The first „European AI for Fundamental Physics Conference“ (EuCAIFCon) was held in Amsterdam, from 30 April to 3 May 2024. The aim of this event was to provide a platform for establishing new connections between AI activities across various branches of fundamental physics, by bringing together reserachers that face similar challenges and/or use similar AI solutions. The conference was organized „horizontally“: sessions were centered on specific AI methods and themes, while being cross-disciplinary regarding the scientific questions.

The first JENA Computing Workshop was held on June 12 – 14, 2023, in Bologna.

Continued discussion led to the Executive Summary and next steps, featuring the formation of five Working Groups described in the document including the possibility to sign up – see below.

Working Groups

The mandate from the 3 ENA Chairs for the Working Groups can be found here.

At the JENA Symposium in May 2022 in Madrid, both the plenary presentations and the closed session of funding agency representatives revealed that there is an increased need for discussions on the strategy and implementation of European federated computing at future large-scale research facilities.

The status, needs and plans on a European level for large infrastructures are diverse and not coherent, e.g.,

  • In particle physics the concept for HL-LHC computing is being discussed, in particular how the WLCG concept can be adapted to cope with the increased demands
  • in nuclear physics the computing is currently organized mainly facility based and the community has limited access to the national computing centers
  • in astroparticle physics various totally different computing models for the distributed large-scale infrastructures exist

For all these research areas, issues of scaling will be the challenge of the next decade. Within JENA, synergies and commonalities will be of utmost importance in this scaling.
