JASMIN Conference 2020



The JASMIN2020 conference will showcase how the JASMIN facility is supporting and advancing environmental science research. This free event will be held at JASMIN’s home institution, the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory at the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire, on Tuesday 16th June 2020.

The one day event will be an opportunity for users to share experiences of using JASMIN and see how others have solved problems with the available tools/applications. The conference aims to help users get the most out of JASMIN’s facilities by learning from others' experiences. It will also allow for users to engage with the JASMIN team (and our funders) and express how using JASMIN for their research has had a positive benefit on the environmental science community or wider society.

The event will allow for networking and knowledge sharing so that attendees can leave with ideas for improving their work on JASMIN. The conference will be a mixture of user presentations, updates from the JASMIN team and poster sessions. The JASMIN team will share information about existing and new services that are of interest to the community.

The conference will be preceded by a hands-on training workshop on Monday 15th June covering the topics detailed here (training workshop spaces will be limited and registration is separate).

Abstract Submission

JASMIN users are invited to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations - abstract submission is now open as of 5th Feb 2020 and will close on 8th March 2020.

Submit abstracts here

In your abstract, please include a brief overview of your science and research, but focus on how JASMIN is helping you to achieve your technical objectives. Ideally, your contribution should be aimed at a diverse audience of JASMIN users with the aim of sharing best practice!

We specifically want to hear about how you use JASMIN - what worked well, what didn’t, and any advice for other users. We therefore would like a technical focus on the JASMIN facility e.g. how you have used the various tools/services that JASMIN offers to deliver your research. Some examples could be;

  • How LOTUS helped you solve a processing problem
  • What you used JASMIN’s fast transfer network for
  • Building an application on the Community Cloud
  • Best practice for working on a shared group workspace

Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words and should be understandable to a non-technical audience. We will let you know whether you have been successful in your abstract submission by the end of April 2020.

Summary of what we want to hear about:

  • The science question you’re addressing (top level overview)
  • How you’ve used JASMIN for your work
  • What particular features of JASMIN enabled your work
  • Solutions that could be shared with other users

It would also be helpful if you could add in some keywords at the bottom of your abstract submission. These may be to do with the JASMIN service you use, the science themes your research addresses, and anything else you think may be relevant.
