Cutting edge UK e-research showcased at major international HPC conference

06.11.2007
The UK’s e-science programme will be showcased through a selection of presentations and demonstrations from a wide range of application areas at SC07 in Reno, Nevada. Over 6000 delegates are expected to attend SC07 and there will be over 300 academic and commercial exhibitors.

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.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
