Thursday, January 10th
09:30—10:00 registration

We will provide a summary review of Globus features targeted at those new to Globus. We will demonstrate how to transfer and share data, and install a Globus Connect Personal endpoint on your laptop. This introduction will provide important context for subsequent sessions - please make every attempt to attend if you are new to Globus or have limited understanding of the capabilities of the service.

11:15—11:30 break

We will review the process for creating a Globus endpoint on your HPC cluster, lab server, or other multi-user storage system. We will provide more detailed reviews of administrator features such as integrating institutional identity providers for streamlined user authentication, as well as performance tuning, monitoring and managing endpoint activity via the management console. You will experiment with installing Globus Connect Server, and configuring a number of common options on the endpoint.

12:30—13:15 lunch

We will demonstrate how you can incorporate Globus capabilities into your own data portals, science gateways, and other web applications that support data-intensive research.


We will review common use cases where Globus can facilitate collaboration, and demonstrate how the Globus command line interface (CLI) and API may be used to scale research flows by automating repetitive data management tasks. We will also provide specific examples to instruct users how to automate scripted transfers to/from endpoints, and how to have a script return an inventory of data stored on an endpoint.

15:15—15:30 break

We will demonstrate how Globus may be used in conjunction with the Jupyter platform to open up new avenues in interactive data science. We will walk through sample use cases and provide examples and resources for using Jupyter notebooks with Globus. We will explore the various capabilities provided by Globus for assembling, describing, publishing, searching and discovering data sets, and learn how to integrate Globus services into your institutional repository and data publication workflows.


Participants will learn how to use Globus Auth to provide authentication and fine-grained authorization for accessing your own services.
