Funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and hosted by the UK National Grid Service (NGS), the United Kingdom Pavilion will feature continuous demonstrations of cutting edge applications of HPC and Grid Computing. The auditorium in the centre of the Pavilion will highlight particular projects from the UK e-science programme and allow for in-depth audience questions and discussion.
Projects to be demonstrated at the United Kingdom Pavilion include:
•AstroGrid which has created and deployed the UK's Virtual Observatory (VO) representing the world’s only unified and deployed VO operational service. This gives astronomers a 'one-stop' access to all the worlds’ astronomy data from their desktop, significantly speeding their rate of research.
•National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM) who are investigating solutions to the data deluge problem. With an overwhelming amount of knowledge recorded in texts, there is a need for techniques to discover new, hidden or unsuspected knowledge using High Performance Computing (HPC).
•GridPP who will be demonstrating the Real Time Monitor which shows the world’s largest scientific grid, as it happens. Computing jobs in disciplines from biomedicine to particle physics fly to hundreds of sites worldwide and can be followed from your desktop in real time.
The United Kingdom Pavilion can be found at booth number 571.

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...
