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: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
