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."

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
