LAS PALMAS DE GRAN CANARIA, Spain, Aug. 26 -- This year's CoreGRID Symposium marks the end of CoreGRID as a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission. Most important, it corresponds to the re-launch of CoreGRID as the self-sustained ERCIM Working Group covering research activities on both Grid and Service Computing while maintaining the momentum of the European collaboration on Grid research.
After four years of existence, CoreGRID has indeed carved out a place for itself in the international Grid research arena. With 330 researchers from 46 European research institutions, it has become one of the largest research centres in Grid computing, encompassing a vast range of research topics such as knowledge and data management, programming models, middleware, resource management and scheduling, workflow, service infrastructures and peer-to-peer systems, just to cite a few. It has now reached its ideal objective: to become the European Grid beacon.
CoreGRID's significant and promising research results in Grid computing are largely promoted at the occasion of the CoreGRID Symposium. This successful event, jointly organized with the Euro-Par 2008 conference on August 25-26 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, gathers hundred key researchers and industrials from European and Member States initiatives in Grid research, as well as from international projects in the field.
According to Dr Thierry Priol (INRIA) in charge of CoreGRID's scientific co-ordination and of the Symposium's organization, "The objective of this event is to definitely demonstrate CoreGRID leadership in Grid research."
Having been active for four years, CoreGRID has now reached a highly visible position: it is recognized worldwide. It is really satisfying for the CoreGRID researchers to see that their work has been influential in the development of new technologies and products and has contributed to the European economy's growth. It is also an enthusiastic determination for all CoreGRID partners to continue to work together and address new research challenges under this new status of ERCIM Working Group.
CoreGRID is more than ever committed to involving further industrial stakeholders in making determinant contributions to Europe's Next Generation Grid vision.
In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

Supercomputers at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have worked on important computational problems such as collapse of the atomic state, the optimization of chemical catalysts, and now modeling popping bubbles.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
