Wednesday, April 24th
08:30—09:00 registration (breakfast provided)
09:00—10:00

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.

10:00—10:15 break
10:15—11:30

We will review the process for creating a Globus endpoint on your HPC cluster, lab server, or other multi-user storage system. You will experiment with installing Globus Connect Server, and configuring a number of common options on the endpoint.

11:30—12:15

We will present various use cases that illustrate the power of Globus data sharing capabilities, and provide hands-on experience with the Globus file sharing API.

12:15—13:15 lunch break (lunch provided)
13:15—14:00

We will review common use cases and demonstrate how the Globus command line interface (CLI) and API may be used to automate 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.

14:00—15:15

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.

15:15—15:45 snack break (refreshments provided)
15:45—16:30

Need to manage HIPAA-regulated data? Working with PII or CUI? No problem. Globus supports management of Protected Health Information (PHI) including data regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). With higher assurance levels for managing restricted data, researchers can easily work with this data and share it securely and appropriately with collaborators, while meeting compliance requirements.

16:30—17:00
