SLALOM workshop on Cloud SLA Contracts and Procurement in collaboration with PICSE (Brussels, 7th March 2016, one day before Cloudscape 8th March)
The European Open Science Cloud envisages a trusted, open environment for storing, sharing and re-using scientific data and results and supporting Open Science practices. How procurement practices, cloud contracts and SLAs affect the establishment of such environment? The PICSE (Procurement Innovation for Cloud Services in Europe- www.picse.eu) and SLALOM (Legal & open model terms for cloud SLA and contracts) H2020-funded projects have been working to answer this question.
The workshop will consist on two sessions: a morning SLALOM session and afternoon SLALOM/PICSE public workshop. The workshop will be the opportunity to present to public procurers and policy makers the advances made in the cloud procurement and contract field and to establish a set of call for actions for the next 5 years.
Venue: European Commission CNECT unit premises (meeting room still to be confirmed). 25 Avenue de Beaulieu, 1160 Brussels.
