Realizing virtual research environments for the agri-food community: the AGINFRA PLUS experience
Assante M., Boizet A., Candela L., Castelli D., Cirillo R., Coro G., Fernández E., Filter M., Frosini L., Georgiev T., Kakaletris G., Katsivelis P., Knapen R., Lelii L., Lokers R. M., Mangiacrapa F., Manouselis N., Pagano P., Panichi G., Penev L., Sinibaldi F.
The enhancements in IT solutions and the open science movement are injecting changes in the practices dealing with data collection, collation, processing, analytics, and publishing in all the domains, including agri-food. However, in implementing these changes one of the major issues faced by the agri-food researchers is the fragmentation of the "assets" to be exploited when performing research tasks, for example, data of interest are heterogeneous and scattered across several repositories, the tools modelers rely on are diverse and often make use of limited computing capacity, the publishing practices are various and rarely aim at making available the "whole story" including datasets, processes, and results. This paper presents the AGINFRA PLUS endeavor to overcome these limitations by providing researchers in three designated communities with Virtual Research Environments facilitating the use of the "assets" of interest and promote collaboration.Source: Concurrency and computation (Online) 33 (2020). doi:10.1002/cpe.6087

Blue Cloud - D4.2: Blue Cloud VRE Common Facilities (Release 1)
Assante M., Candela L., Pagano P., Dell'Amico A., Coro G., Cirillo R., Frosini L., Lelii L., Lettere M., Mangiacrapa F., Panichi G., Sinibaldi F.
The Blue-Cloud project plans to pilot a cyber platform bringing together and providing access to multidisciplinary data from observations and models, analytical tools, and computing facilities essential to support research to understand better and manage the many aspects of ocean sustainability. To achieve this goal, Blue-Cloud is developing, deploying, and operating the Blue-Cloud platform whose architecture consists of two families of components: (a) the Blue Cloud Data Discovery and Access service component to serve federated discovery and access to 'blue data' infrastructures; and (b) the Blue Cloud Virtual Research Environment (VRE) component to provide a Blue Cloud VRE as a federation of computing platforms and analytical services. This deliverable presents the Blue Cloud Virtual Research Environment constituents by focusing on both new services and revised existing services that have been developed in the reporting period to serve the needs of the Blue Cloud community. In particular, this deliverable describes a total of 11 services and components. These services and components contribute functionalities to the Blue Cloud VRE Enabling Framework (Identity and Access Management, VRE Management), Collaborative framework (Workspace and Social Networking), Analytics Framework (Software and Algorithm Importer, Smart Executor), Publishing Framework (Catalogue Service) and improved support for RStudio, JupyterHub, ShinyProxy, and Docker Applications. The services are described below by reporting their design principles, architectures, and main features. The deliverable also describes the procedures and approaches governing services and components released by highlighting how Gitea (as Git hosting service), Jenkins (as automation server), and Maven (as project management and comprehension tool) are used to guarantee continuous integration processes. Services and components discussed in this deliverable contribute to 11 gCube open-source software system releases (from gCube 4.16 up to gCube 4.25.1) and are in the pipeline for the next ones. They have been used to develop and operate the Virtual Laboratories of the Blue Cloud gateway https://blue-cloud.d4science.org and its underlying infrastructure. At the time of this deliverable (November 2020), the gateway hosts a total of 8 VREs and VLabs, including five specifically conceived to support the co-development of some of the Blue-Cloud demonstrators (namely, the Aquaculture Atlas Generation for Demonstrator #5, the Blue-Cloud Lab for several demonstrators, the GRSF pre for Demonstrator #4, the Marine Environmental Indicators for Demonstrator #3, the Zoo-Phytoplankton EOV for Demonstrator #1). This gateway and its tools serve more than 400 users that (since January 2020) performed a total of more than 5000 working sessions, more than 1700 accesses to the Workspace, and more than 750 analytics tasks. These exploitation and uptake indicators are likely to grow in the coming months thanks to data updates and continued use, further development of existing VLabs, and finally, the creation of new ones.Source: Project Report, Blue Cloud, D4.2, 2020

The gCube system: delivering virtual research environments as-a-service
Assante M., Candela L., Castelli D., Cirillo R., Coro G., Frosini L., Lelii L., Mangiacrapa F., Marioli V., Pagano P., Panichi G., Perciante C., Sinibaldi F.
Important changes have characterised research and knowledge production in recent decades. These changes are associated with developments in information technologies and infrastructures. The processes characterising research and knowledge production are changing through the digitalization of science, the virtualisation of research communities and networks, the offering of underlying systems and services by infrastructures. This paper gives an overview of gCube, a software system promoting elastic and seamless access to research assets (data, services, computing) across the boundaries of institutions, disciplines and providers to favour collaboration-oriented research tasks. gCube's technology is primarily conceived to enable Hybrid Data Infrastructures facilitating the dynamic definition and operation of Virtual Research Environments. To this end, it offers a comprehensive set of data management commodities on various types of data and a rich array of "mediators" to interface well-established Infrastructures and Information Systems from various domains. Its effectiveness has been proved by operating the D4Science.org infrastructure and serving concrete, multidisciplinary, challenging, and large scale scenarios.Source: Future generation computer systems 95 (2019): 445–453. doi:10.1016/j.future.2018.10.035

BlueBRIDGE - BlueBRIDGE VREs operation activity: final report
Assante M., Candela L., Cirillo R., Dell'Amico A., Pagano P.
Virtual Research Environments and Virtual Laboratories are among the key products the BlueBRIDGE project is called to develop and to deliver to serve its target communities and application scenarios. The deployment and operation of a Virtual Research Environment is a task that involves the reuse of existing technologies as well as the development of new technologies aiming at offering new facilities. The development of the technology, both the generic as well as that which is oriented to serve the specific needs of a given community/target scenario, is captured by other deliverables. This report describes the activities performed to provide the BlueBRIDGE community with the set of Virtual Research Environments (VREs) and Virtual Laboratories (VLabs) hosted by the BlueBRIDGE portal during the entire duration of the project. A total of 66 VREs / VLabs have been deployed and operated, overall serving more than 3000 users across 32 countries and 124 different organizations. Such VREs / VLabs include "private" ones (66% circa), i.e. environments whose membership is by invitation only, "restricted" ones (15% circa), i.e. environments that users can request to join yet the requests have to be explicitly approved by the managers, and "open" ones (18% circa), i.e. environments that any user can request to join and no approval is needed. The 45% circa of the served users is exploiting "open" environments, the 34% circa is exploiting "private" environments, and the 19% circa is exploiting "restricted" environments. During the project, more than 980 requests for support, incident or bug have been resolved (441 requests for support and 546 requests for incidents and bugs).Source: Project report, BlueBRIDGE, Deliverable D4.5, 2018

Science is in continuous evolution and so are the methodologies and approaches scientists tend to apply by calling for appropriate supporting environments. This is in part due to the limitations of the existing practices and in part due to the new possibilities offered by technology advances. gCube is a software system promoting elastic and seamless access to research assets (data, services, computing) across the boundaries of institutions, disciplines and providers to favour collaborative- oriented research tasks. Its primary goal is to enable Hybrid Data Infrastructures facilitating the dynamic definition and operation of Virtual Research Environments. To this end, it offers a comprehensive set of data management commodities on various types of data and a rich array of "mediators" to interface well-established Infrastructures and Information Systems from various domains. Its effectiveness has been proved by operating the D4Science.org infrastructure and serving concrete, multidisciplinary, challenging, and large scale scenarios.

Frosini L., Assante M., Dell'Amico A., Lelii L., Candela L., Pagano P.
The D6.3 Report on the implementation of the Joint Resource Registry documents the interim implementation of the Joint Resource Registry (JRR). It complements the D5.2 Report on the design of the Joint Resource Registry deliverable by providing details on how to interact with and exploit the functionalities it provides. The JRR hosts the PARTHENOS entities represented according to the PARTHENOS Entities Model defined in WP5. As such, it represents an information system for the PARTHENOS community and the PARTHENOS universe of tools and services designed for and released in the PARTHENOS infrastructure. This deliverable presents, in Section 2, the principles and guidelines that govern the implementation of the JRR which has been designed to support the persistence of the PARTHENOS Entities. The JRR is implemented as a tailored information system capable of satisfying the evolution of the model itself, the main features of which are described in section 3 since the facet based resource model is extensively referred to throughout this report. Entities, Resources, Facets and Relations are described in detail. Section 4 describes the set of technical components comprising the JRR and APIs, covering the architecture which includes the Resource Registry Service, Context Client, Schema Client, Publisher and Client. Section 5 provides information regarding how to interact with the Resource Registry Service by exploiting the Context and Schema Port Types. The REST APIs are also presented for each functionality. Section 6 covers the backend database, OrientDB, a Multi-Model Open Source NoSQL DBMS that brings together the power of graphs and the flexibility of documents into one scalable high-performance operational database. The final section provides information on the Studio GUI used by the Content Administrator for searching between the created types and inspection of their schema.Source: Project report, PARTHENOS, Deliverable D6.3, pp.1–53, 2017

Are scientific data repositories coping with research data publishing?
Assante M., Candela L., Castelli D., Tani A.
Research data publishing is intended as the release of research data to make it possible for practitioners to (re)use them according to "open science" dynamics. There are three main actors called to deal with research data publishing practices: researchers, publishers, and data repositories. This study analyses the solutions offered by generalist scientific data repositories, i.e., repositories supporting the deposition of any type of research data. These repositories cannot make any assumption on the application domain. They are actually called to face with the almost open ended typologies of data used in science. The current practices promoted by such repositories are analysed with respect to eight key aspects of data publishing, i.e., dataset formatting, documentation, licensing, publication costs, validation, availability, discovery and access, and citation. From this analysis it emerges that these repositories implement well consolidated practices and pragmatic solutions for literature repositories. These practices and solutions can not totally meet the needs of management and use of datasets resources, especially in a context where rapid technological changes continuously open new exploitation prospects.Source: Data science journal 15 (2016). doi:10.5334/dsj-2016-006

gCube Social Networking Cloud: News Feed [Release 2.0.0 , 22 July 2016]
Assante M., Perciante C.
The gCube social networking facilities manifest in a number of applications made available through a thin Web browser are conceptually close to the common facilities promoted by social networks - e.g., posting news, commenting on posted news - yet adapted to deal with large scale collaboration and cooperation on comprehensive scientific prod- ucts, data sets, theories and tools. The News Feed lists users' and applications' updates and make these available to every user according to his/her preferences. Additionally, it enables users to comment, subscribe or reshare these updates, and - in case of application posts - to make users access the subject of the post directly in the application that created it, e.g., to see a data set or an application. Moreover it allows to trigger topic search when clicking on a post containing hashtags (topics).Project(s): IMARINE via OpenAIRE
