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.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
