Special requirements other than the set up mentioned in the CfA text.

For live demo, it is better to have two screens. We need also high speed connection to Internet for two computers with all ports open.


Radiatiotherapy is one of the main tools for treatment cancer disases, alone or together with other techniques. RadiotherapyGrid demonstration shows the usage of new remote computational-based tools to help medical physicists to plan the treatments: a verification tool based on Monte Carlo method and an optimization tool to end a suitable treatment plan for the doctor's prescriptions. Both tools use computational Grid resources to speed-up the calculations and to improve the security and trustworthness of the platform. In this demonstration, the integration of four modules is shown: GridWay, which has been enhanced with a new plugin which negotiates resources using BEinGRID SLA Negotiation component; a Policy Enforcement Point (Vordel's XML Gateway)which acts as a XML security gateway to check and validate service requests; and a Policy Decision Point (Axiomatics Policy Server) as an authorization server based on XACML standard.
