The Grid 2006 Conference, which features keynote talks, panel, peer reviewed papers presentations, and posters, serves as both the premier conference presenting best Grid research and a forum where new concepts can be introduced and explored. This year the Conference will be co-located with the 2006 Cluster conference.... Read more
Funded by the European Commission, the Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE) project is the flagship Grid infrastructure project of the EU. The second two-year phase of the project started 1 April 2006 and includes:
The gives an idea of the power of EGEE by displaying all jobs submitted through the Resource Brokers displayed. These Resource Brokers are being monitored directly through a mySQL database connection. Since this information is continually updated, job movement around the world map is seen in real time, along with changes in status. You can also see the
through the LCG Grid Operations Centre GIIS Monitor
As well as the enormous processing power available, a series of applications have been successfuly deployed and used on the EGEE Grid infrastructure, initially from the fields of High Energy Physics (HEP) and Biomedicine.
EGEE now also supports applications from many other scientific domains, such as Astrophysics, Computational Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Finance, Fusion, Geophysics, Multimedia. In addition, there are several applications from the industrial sector running on the EGEE Grid, such as applications from geophysics and the plastics industry.
Geocluster, the leading industry seismic processing solution, is the first industrial application successfully running on the EGEE Production Service, within the Expanding GEOsciences on DEmand (EGEODE) Virtual Organisation.
EGEE also supports the OpenPlast Project, an industrial application project using a computing grid, focused on the specific needs of plasturgy companies. The first phase of this project is to work on the simulation of thermoplastic material injection processes.
