Background and motivation: PRAGMA

  • PRAGMA (Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware)

    • an open organization in which Pacific Rim institutions and universities will collaborate more formally to develop grid-enabled applications and will deploy the needed infrastructure throughout the Pacific Region to allow data, computing, and other resource sharing.

    • Led by Dr. Peter Arzberger, UCSD

    • Working groups

      • Resource & DataGrid Working Group

        promoting resource sharing

      • Geo Science Working Group

        developing data grid technology and its application

      • Bioscience Working Group

        developing grid technology useful and practical for

        biology eg. Grid portal for life science

      • Telescience Working Group

        sharing scientific measurement device such as

        tiled display and high-volage microscopy

Background and motivation prime l.jpg
Background and motivation: PRIME

  • PRIME

    • Started at University of California, San Diego in 2004

    • An educational project which provides an international research and cultural experience to better prepare students for the global workplace of the 21 st century

    • Undergraduate students are supposed to engage in the research and development work set in advance by mentors in UCSD and the accepting institution.

      • Through the collaboration with with researchers, scientists, and students in institutions and universities in the Pacific Rim (PRAGMA members), students are expected to learn the importance of international collaboration for their future.

    • Until today, the following institutions have

      accepted students from UCSD.

      Australia: Monash University

      China: CNIC, CAS

      Taiwan: NCHC (National Center for High-Performance

      Computing)

      Japan: Osaka University

Background and motivation of prius project l.jpg
Background and Motivation of PRIUS project

  • Osaka University (the Graduate school of information science and technology and Cybermedia Center) has been collaborating in R&D activities for a long time through PRAGMA community.

    • PRAGMA (Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware Assembly)

      has been promoted since 2002.

    • Researchers and scientists in pacific rim countries has participated

      in R&D activities under the leadership of UCSD.

  • Also, Osaka University has a role of importance in PRIME project, an educational program for undergraduate students in UCSD.

    • PRIME project allows UCSD students to stay in host countries

      for about three months for skill building and cultural experience.

    • Osaka University is an institution that has accepted

      ten students since 2004.


Background and motivation l.jpg

Maturity of PRAGMA R&D network

Stimulating the movement toward

the establishment of PRAGMA Educational network

Background and Motivation

  • Success of PRAGMA community

    • Accumulated Expertise and practice of building Highly advanced Grid applications and middleware

    • Formation of Human network of researchers and scientists in pacific rim

  • Activation of Educational activities

    • PRIME: Providing UCSD students with an opportunity of experiencing, studying, and learning highly sophisticated technology and cultural background through practical R&D with PRAGMA partners.


What is prius project l.jpg
What is PRIUS Project?

  • A selected project for University Education Internationalization Promotion Program promoted by MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology)

    • This education program is expected to be promoted to improve Japanese advanced education in international compatibility and commonality as well as enhance the international competitive power in Japanese advanced education.

  • Just 15 of total 104 proposed projects have been accepted in 2005.

    • As to national universities, only 9 universities started their own projects in the year

  • Osaka University started “Fostering of Globally-leading Researchers in Integrated Sciences”

    • The project is expected to be a 4-year project from 2005.

    • The budget estimated is 30 millions yen (280 thousand dollars) each year.


Purpose of prius l.jpg
Purpose of PRIUS

  • Taking maximum advantage of both R&D and educational networks brought by the existent PRAGMA framework, we aim to establish an consistent educational infrastructure that provides graduate students with the opportunities to widen their international perspective.

  • Through the established educational infrastructure, PRIUS aims to produce the students who have the ability to take a leadership in this recent “globalized” world.

    • Language

    • Cultural background

    • Knowledge in cutting-edge technology

    • How to “team-play”
