The EGI-LifeWatch Competence Center has organized a workshop in Santander to analyze the progress in the Esfri construction, as well as to discuss the next actions that might be taken in the next months. The meeting will take place from 2nd to 4th September at the Instituto de Física de Cantabria. It will adress in particular four topics:
1-Pattern recognition tools for Citizen Science
2- Data flow handling, from the instrumentation to the repositories
3 -Use of R-tools
4- Workflows: Galaxy and TRUFA
The objective is sharing and learning about the activities that have been developed over the current year.
