        Second ESCAPE citizen science workshop on Sept 15-17, with remit expanded to include EOSC-Future areas. We welcome registrations from anyone who would like 100000 volunteers to help with their data analysis:


      • CTA 2m
        Speaker: Dr Matthias Fuessling (CTAO gGmbH)

        Work basically continued as reported in previous meetings, mainly in:

        • WP2:
          • preparation for DAC21
          • further implementation and testing of rucio-based data lake instance for CTA (PIC, LAPP)
          • first investigations of a DIRAC-based workload management instance using a (already running) CTA DIRAC instance (LAPP)
        • WP3:
          • software onboarded to support basic analysis use cases (gammapy, agnpy), software for data processing (as e.g. used in  the DAC21, ctapipe) missing (to be discussed how and when this would happen)
        • WP4:
          • preparation on a meeting to discuss links with IVOA (potentially enlarging the circle) in Sep
          • work continued on provenance
        • WP5:
          • preparation of progress workshop
        • General:
          • continued work on use cases (with more details and test cases to support the DAC21 and the project close-out)
          • link of use cases to TSPs still needs to be established


      • EGO 2m
        Speaker: Antonella Bozzi
      • ESO 2m

        Speaker: Rosie Bolton (Square Kilometre Array Organisation)

        At SKA we continue to engage predominately with WP2 and WP5, as per our funding. Our current main areas of focus are on rucio (specifically looking at how rucio can use metadata to manage data replica placement), and assessing binderhub as a technology to support the science platform.
