The UK e-Science Programme has won a prestigious international award in the inaugural GRIDtoday Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards which are presented at the GridWorld conference in Washington DC today.
A panel of international leaders in grid and service-orientated IT voted UK e-Science the "research organisation demonstrating the most innovative grid implementation in government research". The panel comprised contributors and editors of GRIDtoday, the weekly online publication covering developments in grid computing and service-orientated IT.
Malcolm Atkinson, UK e-Science Envoy from the National e-Science Centre at the University of Edinburgh says: "The UK e-Science Programme is delighted to receive this recognition for its innovative research, especially from such an influential community in the grid world. Since its start in 2001, the UK e-Science Programme has invested more than $450 million on grid R&D and deployment alone. Now we have a National Grid Service and users from virtually every research discipline."
The GridWorld conference, which runs from 11-15 September, is featuring several leading developments from the UK e-Science Programme including: Open Source software from OMII-UK (Open Middleware Infrastructure Institute); data access and integration software developed in Edinburgh; a session to explore pooling of educational and training material in grid computing; and a session on the UK's Knowledge Transfer Network, Grid Computing Now!.
The GRIDtoday Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards are determined through a survey of thousands of GRIDtoday readers, and will be a permanent annual feature of the publication. The UK e-Science Programme has won an Editors' Choice Award.
"We are very excited about this opportunity to articulate the views and opinions of our readers to recognize the accomplishments that are being made in advancing the development and adoption of grid, service-oriented IT and virtualisation," said Tom Tabor, publisher of GRIDtoday. "These industry recognition awards send a strong message to the recipients that the many global contributors working in or watching this important computing segment recognise their work, and consider their efforts meritorious. Our congratulations go out to all the winners."

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
