The three-day event organised this week from June 3 to 5 in Barcelona, BEinGRID Industry Days, is showcasing the innovative Grid applications that have been applied across a wide range of targeted sectors including finance, supply chain management, media, leisure and engineering, among others. These success stories are complemented with keynotes, live demonstrations and roundtables by internationally recognized experts in Grid who have a clear business approach.
The objective of the BEinGRID Industry Days is to show that Grid technology is by far ready for further uptake. This will be done through the results of the project's pilots, each with specific business processes addressing current customer needs and requirements. The involvement of the end users and service providers in each pilot has lead to genuine and practical solutions that balance each actor's needs.
As an example, the 'Virtual Reality for Architects' application, has been developed to allow architects to provide customers with highly realistic models through which they can navigate in real time. Allowing clients to explore the building is an added value as they can better appreciate the design. Most innovatively, the application has been developed to allow the architect to work remotely - perhaps at the clients' site, and access the service on an on-demand basis - allowing greater financial flexibility.
"Thanks to this application, we now benefit from unused resources in a simple way. This implies reduced processing time. Saving time during the processing phase, actually enabling us to increase and concentrate more on the test phase and reducing post-production related issues. We raise the customer's satisfaction and avoid a delay which, at the end, makes it a really cost-effective solution" confirms Isidore Zielonka, Partner, Art & Build.
In addition to the live demonstrations from the pilots, speakers from Forrester, Amazon.com, AXA, BT, eBay, IBM, Logica, Univa UD and the European Commission, as well as our sponsors Atos Origin, Platform Computing, GridSystems, Axiomatics and Layer 7 Technologies, will be addressing key representatives from SMEs, big industries and research organisations. The BEinGRID Industry Days is thus a unique opportunity to access high-quality content, real-world business scenarios and best practices of Grid adoption.
Project Coordinator Santi Ristol from Atos Origin commented "I am very proud that the first phase of BEinGRID has produced such outstanding results. This event will be a great opportunity for business to appreciate that Grid technologies are a viable and cost effective solution to numerous different business needs. Our many innovative end users, around whom we have developed these solutions, illustrate that Grid is business-ready".
The event, 3-5 June is held in parallel to the OGF23 and attendees have access to both events.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
