Science as Voyage: Ian Foster at TEDxCERN
 

Ian Foster's research for high performance distributed and parallel computing has many call him 'father of grid computing'. Ian will take us on a journey of Big Process for Big Data, with a call to action for the kind of collaborative processes we need.

New life for old metal mines
 

That is why researchers have developed sophisticated 3D models. They are aimed at helping to better understand the complex geology that envelopes the ore. What you see here in red are what we call reflective zones, underground regions whose material has a different density from the surrounding bedrock. That different density is one of the properties of the ore we are looking for. So these 3D maps help us to precisely spot those regions and calculate angles and distances for more accurate exploration drilling Diamond drilling is a very expensive business. So if you can get more robust computer models, so you need to drill less holes in order to target the mineral spots, then you will reduce the expenses needed to drill those deep holes. What we can describe in a 3D model like this is the rocks units, structures which could be important for guiding where ores are located in the crust. So it is all about chemical and physical properties of the rocks.

Maps: Colouring in the Black Sea
 

What do microscopic molecules and huge computer grids have in common? They both build up giant scientific databases of ecosystems around the World. But it is a tricky process. This is the story of how researchers around the Black Sea are struggling to get the bigger picture out of tiny details. On the shores of the Danube River there is an unusual team. Romanian and Ukranian scientists are embarking on a common research trip. Experts in computer modelling have teamed up with environmental engineers to come up with a precise picture of diverse environmental data in big rivers like the Danube or the Dnieper, but also in hundreds of small streams flowing to the Black Sea. The challenges were huge as Elham Rouhollahnejad an environmental engineer at the Eawag Institute explains: We used topographic maps to make our hydrological models. And sometimes those maps lacked resolution. In this case, for instance, this particular river is disconnected. It is the same water flow, but it looks like two different rivers. So we had to carefully, manually, correct it. Otherwise, our calculations on flow rates or water inputs would not be accurate. The effort is based on what is called Global Earth Observation, designed to use monitoring technologies to build up scientific databases.

WeNMR A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology
 

WeNMR brings together research teams in the structural biology and life science area into a virtual research community at a worldwide level, focusing on biomolecular Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS). These research communities need virtual platforms to provide user-friendly computation tools supported by an underlying high performance e-Infrastructure. The main objective of WeNMR is to establish an e-Infrastructure-based global virtual research community for structural biology in the life sciences.

Tribute to Steve Jobs
 

In this video, Torbjørn Kristoffersen looks back at the life of Steve Jobs. I found this piece to be extremely moving and he quotes some of the most influential people of our time about this remarkable man. Ive read a number of articles on Steve Jobs this week, but I would like to recommend this post by Jonathan Schwartz that was quoted in the video.

EGI and e-Infrastructures in Europe.
 

Video about EGI and e-Infrastructures in Europe. The European Grid Infrastructure, EGI, is a grid computing infrastructure based on the federation of individual National Grid Infrastructures (NGI). EGI supports a multi-disciplinary user community and is coordinated by a non-profit organisation, EGI.eu. During its first four years, EGI is co-funded by the EC through the EGI-InSPIRE project.
