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."

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...

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...
