1. Short overview
The purpose of the demonstration is to show the capabilities of the int.eu.grid middleware
and services deployed on top of glite. We have prepared an I2G on-line Demo Package, consisting of a set of applications targeting different research areas: Physics, Environment and Medical Science.
If demonstration is requested please explain what visual or interactive aspects of the contribution necessitate a demonstration rather than a presentation or poster?
Visualization and interactive steering of the ongoing simulation in real time is achieved using Gvid and i2glogin. The user platform and visualization capabilities embedded in the Migrating Desktop make it an ideal demonstration from the point of view of visualization. The point about the presentation is precisely to show graphical output and steering capabilities coming in on real time from the grid.
4. Conclusions / Future plans
This demonstration and the oral presentation we have submitted will help us to stablish a discussion framework with the users present in the meeting. The idea is to have a well defined document for what are the requirements for Quality of Service from the user point of view.
We will translate the results of our discussions into the exploitation path of the project.
The purpose of the demonstration is to show to the researchers that the grid can be used as an everyday working tool also for advanced applications, meaning MPI parallel applications or those requiring from graphical or interactive capabilities, and in general, going beyond the serial batch job submission supported already by glite middleware.
