ELIXIR AAI Engagement Meetings Materials

ELIXIR AAI is an ELIXIR Compute Platform service that other services can use to authenticate their users and manage their access rights.
In the ELIXIR AAI Tas, we are preparing regular Community engagement meetings where we would like to share and discuss together new AAI needs, requirements and ideas collected from the community, as well as share success stories with other infrastructures. Topics will be selected based on needs and interest and also in regard to future migration to LS AAI.
Here you can find information about previous and future Engagement Meetings' Agenda and links to presentation and documentation.
