The CoreGRID symposium – A premiere in the spreading of European Grid technologies research results

29.08.2007
CoreGRID gathered key players from European and Member States initiatives in Grid research, as well as international projects in the field, to disseminate significant research results in Grid Technologies. These results were presented at the CoreGRID Symposium in Rennes on August 27 and 28. More than 120 participants from Research and Industry had the opportunity to meet and exchange their experience on all aspects of Grid computing, including service infrastructures.

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
- Trust, Security and Virtual Organisation
- Programming with Software Components
- Communication and Networking
- Job, Information and Resource Management
- Programming Methodology
- Workflow Management
- Data Management
The relevance of the sessions and the quality of the audience reflected the joint positioning of industrial technique and academic discipline, extending not only the frontier of the state-of-the-art, but also that of the-state-of-practice.

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.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

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...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

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...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

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...
