Embrace is a network of excellence coordinated by the European Bioinformatics Institute which aims at enabling the integration of life sciences data using the grid technology. The workshop will be the opportunity to review the progress accomplished in the development of web services interfaces to the bioinformatics data bases and tools. It will also be used to evaluate the evolution of the grid technology in the last 2 years in the perspective of a new technology recommandation to be produced by Embrace Work Package 3.
Note that this workshop is organized outside the main User Forum program. Attendance do not cost anything but registration is mandatory on a first-come first-served basis.
This workshop does not include training. For more information visit: the workshop web site
There is no charge for attending this Workshop, but intending participants are asked to register here.
OMII-Europe was established to re-engineer a small number of key components from the dominant grid platforms in use across Europe, namely gLite, UNICORE and Globus. These components have been produced to open-standards in order to provide users with a level of useful interoperation across multiple platforms.
Over the last few months OMII-Europe has been working closely with the WISDOM project to implement a viable architecture for interoperability. The WISDOM project was established to demonstrate the relevance and impact of the grid approach to address drug discovery for neglected and emergent diseases such as malaria and avian flu. The process of conducting /In Silico/ docking requires that scientists are able to bridge the gap between massively parallel HPC systems and embarrassingly parallel cluster grids.
This OMII-Europe workshop will provide interested participants with an overview of the research goals being addressed at a level that will be of interest beyond Bio-Informatics. It will also present an in-depth look at the OMII-Europe components themselves and their role in the proposed interoperability architecture. The workshop will also explain how users will be able to obtain the components and access the related support documentation, services and classroom-based and web-based training.
The workshop will cover:
The workshop is addressed at e-Scientists, developers and infrastructure managers and participants will also have an opportunity to influence future development work in OMII-Europe as wider interoperability issues are considered
Following the successful first session given at the EGEE Conference 2007 in Budapest, we propose a follow-up workshop entitled "Users' Requirements, Data Integration and Archiving in Healthgrids: A comparison of European experiences", to take place at the EGEE User Forum in Clermont Ferrand, 11th to 14th February 2008. The workshop is proposed and will be organized by the European FP6 SHARE project in conjunction with HealthGrid, the European association for healthgrid computing, the European FP6 Health-e-Child project and Maat GKnowledge. It will include presentations from leading experts in the field and will aim to trigger discussions in Europe toward the convergence and identification of sustainable means to crystallize research results and improve their successful dissemination/adoption in Industry and up-coming projects for supporting the i2010 strategy. The aim of the workshop is to give an opportunity to all stakeholders to review the status of various International initiatives addressing the development and deployment of healthgrid applications for medical research and health care.
