2nd International Workshop on High Performance Grid Middleware, Bucharest, Romania

Grid Middleware refers to resource management, execution management, data management, security, monitoring and discovery, accounting, and other functions required by Virtual Organizations to operate effectively a shared services environment. Obtaining high performance Grid Middleware through new, innovative solutions is a challenge of today research, due to the strong requirements imposed by the dynamic behavior of the user and resource communities that compose the Virtual Organizations.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide an open forum for researchers from the Grid middleware community to present, discuss, and exchange research-related ideas, results, and experiences in the area of high performance grid middleware. Establish further subject for cooperation and common project is also at the aim of this workshop.

International Supercomputing Conference, Dresden, Germany

ISC has evolved into a high-powered international conference and exhibition that gives its attendees a global perspective on the cutting edge of HPC. As always, our conference program tackles hot HPC topics; this year, for example, we will have a panel session on “Green Computing”, a topic that was almost unknown just two years ago. ISC’s focus on future trends and developments can also be seen in this year’s keynote presentation by Prof. Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, who will discuss “Everybody Supercomputes in the Next Generation Cyber-Science Infrastructure”.
I look forward to seeing you in Dresden.

GOLEM - Grid On computationaL Electro-Magnetics

The goal of this project is to produce a Beowulf claster of modular computational infrastructute especially designed for Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) . Initially in GOLEM we would like simply a cluster skeleton which could be applied to any preexisting computational code with a minimum effort. Making sure that the code is as portable as possible will hopefully increase the usefulness of the package. Beowulf Cluster widely-used term meaning independent computers combined into a unified system through software and networking based on commodity hardware, on a private system network. One of the main goals of GOLEM project is Design of the advanced PC cluster of Beowulf type and its integration with local and European Grid Network for solving of large system of linear equations by direct (sparse matrices solvers) and iterative methods. The infrastructure will support industry and also other research projects.

The application of graph theory and high performance computing medical diagnostics and nanotechnology

The commercial application is the integrated system for detection of new regulatory elements located in the non coding genome parts. Until now many human disorders have been found to be connected to some of the noncoding RNA’s. Detection of new noncoding elements and correlation with SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphysm) databases may allow help to detect and explain cause of other types of cancer and diseases.
Computational prediction of ncRNAs in genomic sequences would also allow experimental testing of expression levels, functional assay by deletion or mutagenesis, structural analysis and identification of protein or nucleic acid interaction partners.
Another application is so called RNA nanotechnology. It is designing of nanoparticles, which are assembled mainly from ribonucleic acid which possess both the right size and ability to gain entry into cells and halt viral growth or cancer's progress or deliver drugs. Some of those nanoparticles has been successfully tested in mice and lab-grown human cells
