Grid / e-Infrastructures: WORLDWIDE COOPERATION ON e-INFRASTRUCTURES Supporting Collaborative Research on Climate Change and Large Scale Challenges

This is a stand in the International village, located in Zone D: International Village. Stand number: D05

Shared distributed computing provides a powerful resource to help scientists deliver cutting-edge research and meet today’s challenges, from physics to climate change.

International collaborative research is dependent on the development of e-infrastructures that can connect scientists around the world. Such developments can have a huge impact on citizens globally. The work from the EGI-InSPIRE, EU-IndiaGrid2, EUMEDGRID-Support and e-ScienceTalk projects will highlight the global e-infrastructure landscape and showcase major achievements, success stories and future perspectives from around the world. This includes activities of past and future projects such as EELA, EUAsiaGrid, SEE-GRID-SCI, GISELA and CHAIN, with the emphasis on the synergy among network, grids, high-performance computing and data repositories, and their impact on large-scale applications and collaborative research.
