EGI at the OGF 23 event: Shaping the future European Grid infrastructure

03.06.2008
The European Grid Initiative Design Study (EGI_DS) project represents an effort to establish a sustainable grid infrastructure in Europe.

The preparation work is carried out by the EGI Design Study, which develops a model for the interaction between the new EGI organization and the National Grid Initiatives (NGIs).

The organization is expected to evolve over time to take on board new technologies and changed user needs. EGI should become the driving force of tomorrow’s European research and technology, enabling science to remain at the cutting edge and industry competitive while ensuring sustainable service provisioning to the users.

The Open Grid Forum (OGF) and OGF Europe play central roles in influencing the drive towards global standardization efforts and bringing best practices back into the European computing environment. The EGI_DS Project Director Dieter Kranzlmüller stresses the wide collaboration among the European grid efforts.

“It is clear that EGI on the one hand and OGF on the other hand need to collaborate on shaping the future European Grid infrastructure. Mastering the landscape of standardization is a key element in the future sustainable European grid infrastructure. In fact, standardization is essential to the further distribution of grids as well as to interoperability between different grids, such as National Grid Infrastructures”, he states.

The European Grid Initiative is strongly involved in the OGF23 event in various ways by the EGI Design Study. Dieter Kranzlmüller holds a presentation about EGI and its latest status as well as the role of middleware and standardization in EGI on Tuesday, 3rd of June during the morning plenary. Additionally, members of the EGI_DS project team are present during the whole event at an information stand for discussions and material distribution.

EGI Geneva Workshop, June 2008

The EGI Design Study project is currently drafting the Blueprint for the future European Grid Initiative Organization. The next EGI Workshop at CERN in Geneva will fully concentrate on discussion of the EGI Blueprint. It will be held at CERN, Geneva, on 30th June, 2008. The registration for the event is open until 20th June at www.eu-egi.eu/events/workshops.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
