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.

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...
