IDCC24, Dataverse Community Meeting, and 2024 MOC Alliance Workshop!

2024 MOC Alliance Workshop

The MOC Alliance provides a structure for a set of interrelated projects that have grown up around the Mass Open Cloud (MOC) and Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC).  These projects include production cloud services (NERC, NESE, OSN) for domain researchers that are operated and facilitated by university research IT, a national testbed for cloud research (OCT), projects to enable scientific and medical researchers (Biogrids, ChRiS), projects to engage the open source (OI labs) and system research (Red Hat Collaboratory, i-Scale) communities.

The workshop brought together the unique community of Research IT, researchers, users, and industry to celebrate what has been accomplished and help define the MOC Alliance strategy moving forward. In addition, it showcased how the Alliance is so much more than the sum of its parts. Sessions covered research that was motivated by experience with a real cloud, the impact research has already had on upstream open source projects, and how some of these projects are starting to impact services that are part of the Alliance.

Dataverse Community Meeting 2024

The Dataverse Community Meeting 2024's key aims are reuniting as many of its members as possible, as well as stimulating newcomers to get interested in this repository and to start collaborating towards a stronger Community. Stronger relationships and commitments within the Community were developed, with an emphasis on Latin American institutions, and enhancing their participation in this Community!

Check out Rory and Vaida's presentation on "Using IGSN IDs in sample management: RSpace& Dataverse Use Case" linked above.


The 'International Digital Curation Conference' is presented by the DCC, and this year has the main theme of Trust Through Transparency. The conference featured a variety of talks categorised under several pathways including Managing DMPs and Data Stewards, Curation Processes, Sharing and Discarding and Trust and Transparency: Standards and Sustainability, along with many more.
