    Caverdock 2.x: Multi-receptor approach
    Abstract: The receptor-ligand interactions are an essential part of many biologically relevant processes. The small ligand molecule needs to pass via a tunnel into a receptor before the interaction of interest begins. Both receptor-ligand interaction and ligand pathway need to be studied. CaverDock is a computational tool that simulates the transport of the ligand in a tunnel. CaverDock 1.0. works with one receptor’s conformation.
    Since then, we have made several improvements. CaverDock 2.0 can work with multiple receptors and, therefore, can better simulate natural receptor behavior. However, when implemented naively, the multi-receptor approach may break continuous movement. I will present the definition of the problem, its possible solutions, and the computationally lightweight solution we have implemented.

    Building services to enable world-class research
    Abstract: With over 100 thousand lakes, the most metal bands per capita and one of the world’s best education system Finland has a unique state owned enterprise CSC – IT Center for Science Ltd that is responsible for developing and operating services for Finnish research. This insider view gives an insight to some of the successes and challenges of data management and compute service development in Finland in the past 10 years. Unique national setting has enabled significant contribution to European research infrastructures and services, such as ELIXIR, EuroHPC LUMI and European Open Science Cloud.

    Internship in the US: Is It Better Across the Big Pond?
    Abstract: It is compulsory to participate in at least one monthly internship abroad during doctoral studies. There appeared an opportunity to spend a semester at Carnegie-Mellon University (CMU), PA, USA, in a Cloud Computing lab led by Prof. Majd Sakr. CMU is a prestigious university ranked (in the US) #2 in the undergraduate CS program and #4 in the graduate CS program and has high expectations both from students and faculty members. I will present my impressions of the faculty, lab, university, working environment, approach to doctoral students, and overall style of education. Moreover, internships are meant to broaden cultural horizons, so I will present the city of Pittsburgh, the living standard in the US in the year 2023, and places I visited across the country. Lastly, I will state not only whether I was able to fulfill the expectations of CMU but also if CMU and the United States of America met mine.

    EOSC — what is actually planned?
    Abstract: While starting with a short overview of the Europan Open Science Cloud and FAIR data initiatives, the presentation will mainly focus on the specific components of the planned implementation of EOSC in Czechia. The expected architecture of the National Metadata Directory (NMA), the National Repository Platform (NRP) concept, the role of AAI, and the actual repository platforms to be provided and managed will be presented and discussed. The technology challenges, visions, and expectations will also be commented on.
