The White Areas Lecture Series


Map of Turkey from 1561. The map shows the part of the
country with white areas yet unknown for the travellers
"Who asks, is stupid in that minute,
but who doesn't, will remain dumb forever..."



White areas were used to mark the unknown regions on old maps.

What is this?

White Area lectures are informal talks and discussion about services and plans of our peers that we know nothing about. They are meant to help us understand better the service internals and strategy choices in our group and provide mutual support. The audience is meant to be the group members but exceptionally, lectures could be opened to other colleagues, interested in a particular subject.

Lectures are held monthly, every last Monday of the month at 3pm in the IT CDA Social Room (building 28-1). The duration is 30'-45' minutes, with possibility, for those interested, to stay in the room and further discuss technical details.

Contact

Announcements will be done via the IT-CDA mattermost channel the Thursday before and the morning of the day. Text should be posted with "@all " to create notifications. If you have any suggestions for a White Area lecture, please contact Maria Dimou.

Information for speakers

White area lectures are ment to discover new areas interesting or necessary to IT CDA members. If you are giving a lecture about a particular service or technology, do not give many technical details but instead focus on:

  • Introduction or overview of the topic since there may be people who are new to it
  • How the topic is relevant to IT-CDA related activities?
  • How does it fit to the group strategy?
  • What is the support structure and needs?
  • What are the current challenges? What is the future work?
  • What other similar technologies exist in the market and whether they have been evaluated or considered at some point.

Lecture index - most recent first

Historical stuff: Previous lectures

White Area lectures are inspired by a regular event of the past see Indico category, on an idea of Markus Schulz at the time of Grid deployment. Maria Dimou was organising them during the 2013-2015 period.
