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: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
