Working Package List
  • WP1: System Architecture – Overall system architecture. Definition of the QoS parameters needed for a network infrastructure where real time and interactive services are used.
  • WP2: Real-time and Interactive web services middleware – Extending web service based middleware into interactive and real time computing.
  • WP3: Grid-Enabled Instrumentation - Development of generic Virtual Instrument Service (VIS). Development of the all Supporting Services needed to catalog, configure, monitoring, analyze errors, fixing automatically problems and finally read out the Grid-enabled instrument resources.
  • WP4:Brokering access to existing Grid resources - Controlling access to gridified resources according agreed levels of service and providing mechanisms for determining and organising complex workflows.
  • WP5: Cooperative Environment - Design and development of a multiuser cooperative environment (i.e. a groupware software) that will be a common component of the various GRIDCC applications.
  • WP6: Integration and Pilot Applications - System integration and deployment of a small number of pilot applications on existing Grid testbeds.
  • WP7: Information dissemination and exploitation– To ensure that the results of the project are widely disseminated and that the results are exploited by existing (e.g. EGEE) and future Grid development projects
  • WP8: Management - To ensure all objectives are realised and all deliverables are completed according to schedule and within budget. Management and resolution of conflict within the project, including the redefinition of WP deliverables. Protection and exploitation of the IP arising from the project.
pilot applications i
Pilot Applications (I)
  • Power Grid
    • In electrical utility networks (or power grids), the introduction of very large numbers of ‘embedded’ power generators often using renewable energy sources, creates a severe chal­lenge for utility companies. Existing computer software technology for monitoring and control is not scalable and cannot provide a solution for the many thousands of generators that are anticipated. GridCC technology would allow the generators to participate in a VO, and consequently to be monitored and scheduled in a cost-effective manner
  • Meteorology
    • Ensemble Forecasting” has been used at large meteorological centers worldwide (e.g. ECMWF, NOAA/NCEP, UK-Met Office, METEO France) with promising re­sults. However “Ensemble Limited Area Forecasting” is still in its infancy. The main reason for this is the demanding requirements for computing resources. These resources are nowadays both available and manageable on the GRID. With real-time extensions, Limited-Area Forecasting can become a common tool.
  • Analysis of neurophysiological data
    • An exciting medical application of real-time operations and analysis on the Grid comes from the diagnosis of migraines. Migraine is an incapacitating disorder of neurovascular origin, which consists of attacks of headache, accompanied by autonomic and possibly neurological symptoms. The attacks, if left untreated, typically last from 4 to 72 hours. During acute migraine, sensitisation phenomena occur. These lower the pain threshold at peripheral and central levels. An estimated 4-5% of the world population suffers chronic daily headache. Prompt pharmacological treatment can stop sensitisation, thus avoiding the chronicity of the illness, while an incorrect analgesic drug overuse may by itself precipitate migraine. Since chronicity is the main cause of invalidity it is important to find the correct treatment and implement it, especially on patients with frequent attacks.

Pilot Applications (II)
  • Device Farm for the Support of Cooperative Distributed Measurements in Telecommunications and Networking Laboratories
    • Focusing on the telecommunication systems and networking area, the goal of this application is to design and implement a “device farm” demonstrator. The demonstrator will be based on the GRIDCC features that will allow the necessary physical (or software-emulated) resources that are involved in a specific experiment to be found and cooperatively used independently of their location.
  • High-Energy Physics: control and monitor of experiments
    • This application involves the use of the Grid in a real-time environment to control and monitor remote large-scale detectors. This application will make use of a High-Energy Physics (HEP) experiment, the CMS detector which is currently under construction at the future LHC collider at CERN. CMS consists of 20,000,000 electronics channels that will be read out by a complex distributed data acquisition (DAQ) system feeding a large processor farm charged with filtering an input rate of up to 100 kHz down to only ~100 Hz of physics events. The DAQ system involves a very large number (a few thousand) of intelligent modules and computers, data throughputs of ~100 Gbytes/s. These characteristics, along with the selectivity of one event in 1,000, are unprecedented in the field, and introduce requirements on the control and monitor of the experiment’s data-taking.
  • Geo-hazards: Remote Operation of Geophysical Monitoring Network
    • Electromagnetic techniques have found a wide spectrum of significant applications in the framework of geophysical explorations. Nowadays, new tomographic techniques can be applied to obtain high-resolution “electromagnetic images” of the interior of the earth inte­rior at different scales. The use of active and passive electromagnetic techniques, the possi­bility to select multiple sources and multi-frequency energizing systems discloses the ge­ometry of complex geological environments (fault systems, landslides, etc.) in depth. It is now possible to obtain in-field temporal sequences of 3D electromagnetic images (4D to­mography). The ability to obtain real-time 4D high-resolution images of subsoil pave the way for a wide spectrum of applications in geo-hazard and environmental monitoring. Some notable examples of such applications include the monitoring of fluid and gas migra­tion processes in volcanic areas, the monitoring of diffusion processes of contaminant plumes and the study of groundwater circulation system in landslide bodies.

Pilot Application III
  • (Far) Remote Operation of Accelerator Facility
    • Far remote operation of an accelerator facility (i.e. the Elettra Control Room in Italy) in­volves the planning of accelerator operations, the maintenance of the accelerator and its trouble­shooting, the repair of delicate equipment, understanding and pushing performance limitations, performing studies, performing commissioning and set ups and rou­tine operations. All these activities are based on large amounts of information, which are at present accessible only at the accelerator site. Remote control of an accelerator facility has the potential of revolutionising the mode of operation and the degree of exploitation of large experimental physics facilities. Far remote operation combines elements of immersive (i.e. providing the feeling to be present at the remote location) communication and cooperation technology. This includes video and audio pres­ence, allowing the simultaneous operation of the same instruments, having access to the same accelerator controls and the relevant data, meeting easily and sponta­neously and providing full awareness of the presence of the collaborators.
stato della negoziazione
Stato della negoziazione
  • Buon giudizio tecnico della proposta
  • I Referee esterni hanno proposto un finanziamento di 4 MEuro contro i 4.7 richiesti
  • Primo incontro con la commissione fatto il 8 marzo
    • Vari problemi di forma nella proposta tecnica
    • Problemi di sostanza nel come fare il taglio del budget
      • Referee esterni propongono un taglio mirato del 25 % su wp4 e wp6
      • Noi vogliamo farlo un po’ piú’uniforme in quanto wp3 e wp6 sono il core del progetto (e INFN ha puntato tutto su questi)
  • Secondo incontro il 23 marzo
