GridCast hooks bloggers at OGF23, 2-6 June 2008, Barcelona, Spain

03.06.2008
Bloggers are providing a sneak-peek behind the scenes of the 23rd Open Grid Forum, held this week in Barcelona, Spain.

The bloggers will be part of a GridCast that allows readers to share in the excitement of grid computing, a technology that connects computers from around the world to create a powerful, shared computing resource for tackling complex problems.

The OGF23 GridCast, coordinated by the EC co-funded GridTalk project, includes podcast interviews as well as a thriving blog, and is being produced live from the 23rd Open Grid Forum, an event at which more than 400 participants are working to accelerate the adoption of grid computing to enable business opportunities and scientific discovery.

“This GridCast gives the impression that you are meeting with people in-person, on-site,” says Wolfgang Gentzsch, OGF23 Program Chair. “It provides a more personal outlook on all the valuable information, sessions and talks taking place at OGF23.”

“We want to make readers feel as though they are here, as part of the event,” explains blogger Cristy Burne, outreach coordinator for the GridTalk project. “It’s a ‘no-holds-barred’ look at what real people at OGF23 are saying about grid computing.”

Silvana Muscella, OGF-Europe Technical Co-ordinator, says the GridCast is helping to showcase Europe’s drive towards standardization in the global grid community: “OGF23 is a key opportunity to engage with a large community of current and future adopters of grid computing,” says Muscella. “We’re aiming to understand and respond to their specific requirements, to help make grid computing more accessible for all.”

GridCast bloggers will be commenting on hot topics, highlighting innovative case studies, reporting on issues concerning interoperability and standards, and more. This is the fourth GridCast in the series.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
