At SC'06 last week, the worldwide science grid community launched International Science Grid This Week, a weekly publication reporting news and information about grid computing projects and collaborations, and the scientific research that uses grid computing technology.
International Science Grid This Week is available online and emailed free to subscribers. The publication is the result of a collaboration between the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE and Open Science Grid projects.
“Just as the world’s grids are working more closely together, sharing jobs and data, so too the people working on grid technology are becoming increasingly integrated,” said Bob Jones, Enabling Grids for E-sciencE Project Director. “Efforts such as iSGTW only reinforce this integration, showing the close ties within the global grid community.”
International Science Grid This Week, or iSGTW, builds on the success of its predecessor, Science Grid This Week, which focused on grid projects in the United States and their use in scientific research. The new publication will use articles, images, links and multimedia content to tell the story of scientific grid computing around the world.
“Scientists use grid computing today to fight disease, develop new semiconductors and study the origins of the universe,” said Open Science Grid Executive Director Ruth Pordes. “We’re proud to support a newsletter that will tell the story of the people and projects building grids around the world, and the scientists using them for discovery.”
International Science Grid This Week is funded jointly by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science through the Open Science Grid; and by the European Commission’s Information Society and Media Directorate-General through the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE project.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
