|Description:|| In October, the AENEAS (Advanced European Network of E-infrastructures for Astronomy with the SKA) project had the first all-hands meeting in Granada, Spain. The project runs for three years and started January 2017. The objective of the AENEAS project is to develop a concept and design for a distributed, federated European Science Data Centre (ESDC) to support the astronomical community in achieving the scientific goals of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). AENEAS brings together all the European member states currently part of the SKA project as well as potential future EU SKA national partners, the SKA Organisation itself, and a larger group of international partners including the two host countries Australia and South Africa. Aeneas is funded by a EU H2020 grant.|
At the meeting first results were shown on requirements survey from astronomical users and potential resource providers (networking, storage and compute). Also initial testing of data transport methods were shown.
