Having been active for three years, CoreGRID is now committed to move further towards sustainable integration and to enhance the economic fall-outs of Grid research progress. In particular, the growing involvement of industry representatives will be essential to exploit the full potential of the latest Grid research results.
CoreGRID is a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development through a grant of €8.2 million assigned for a duration of four years.
Operated as the European Grid Research Laboratory, the CoreGRID Network is conducting research in the field of Grid and peer-to-peer technologies by integrating expertise and promoting scientific and technological excellence both within and beyond the Grid community. The Network gathers more than 340 world-class researchers and PhD students into an ambitious joint programme of activities, which is structured around six strategic and complementary research areas, organised as Institutes: Knowledge and Data Management; Programming Model; Architectural Issues: Scalability, Dependability, Adaptability ; Grid Information, Resource and Workflow Monitoring Services; Resource Management and Scheduling; and Grid Systems, Tools and Environments.
Through the organisation of this Symposium, CoreGRID definitely took the lead in presenting academic research results from EU initiatives and international projects in Grid research and technologies, and in promoting commercially relevant and promising research in Grid computing.
Held in conjunction with the Euro-Par 2007 event, the CoreGRID Symposium covered the following topics:- Service Level Agreement and Quality of Service
According to Dr Thierry Priol (INRIA) in charge of CoreGRID’s scientific co-ordination and of the Symposium’s organisation, “Through this initiative, CoreGRID increases the visibility of Grid research and is more than ever aiming at integrating and coordinating Grid research efforts in close cooperation with industry, aligning both research and industry towards the construction of a sustainable European-wide Grid research lab.”
As CoreGRID now enters its fourth year of activity, it has substantially enhanced the dissemination of Grid research results, with a view to foster its scientific excellence and sustainability.

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...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
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...
