Tuesday 9th September 11:00 - 11:30
An overview of OMII-UK’s Campus Grid Toolkit software showing the ease of installation and operation of the easy-to-use interface.[return to demonstration programme]


Tuesday 9th September 13:40 - 14:00
Giving computational science a friendly face.[return to demonstration programme]

National Grid Service Showcase

Tuesday 9th September 13:45 - 14:00
Hear about the latest developments within the NGS and the range of research being carried out on NGS resources.[return to demonstration programme]


Tuesday 9th September 14:00 - 14:20
Mount the National Grid on your desktop.[return to demonstration programme]

Speed up MATLAB and Simulink algorithms using Parallel Computing

Tuesday 9th September 16:00 - 16:20
Introduction to the parallel computing tools from The MathWorks, focussing on decreasing computation time using the parfor keyword.[return to demonstration programme]


Wednesday 10th September 11:00 - 11:30
The Glueing Service exposes SAGA as a web service, thus allowing high-level grid services to be decoupled from specific Grid middleware backends.[return to demonstration programme]

Taverna 2.0

Wednesday 10th September 11:30 - 12:00
An overview of the new features of Taverna 2.0 including pipelining and new security features. We will also show Taverna 2.0 working in conjunction with myExperiment.[return to demonstration programme]

Handle larger data sets with MathWorks Parallel Computing Tools

Wednesday 10th September 12:00 - 12:20
Introduction to the parallel computing tools from The MathWorks, focussing on handling large data sets using distributed arrays. [return to demonstration programme]


Wednesday 10th September 13:50 - 14:10
Manage your microarray data more effectively. [return to demonstration programme]

PAG - Access Grid Anywhere

Wednesday 10th September 16:30 - 17:00
The Portal Access Grid project has developed a fully-functional portlet client for the Access Grid Toolkit (AGTk). This also enables automatic and transparent switching to unicast when multicast becomes unavailable, allows the use of Access Grid behind restrictive firewalls and from low bandwidth connections, and significantly simplifies the installation procedure for users. We will be demonstrating the new implementation designed for roll-out through Janet to allow open access within GridSphere portal. [return to demonstration programme]

Network Performance Monitoring for the Grid

Thursday 11th September 10:00 - 10:30
Short introduction to Network Performance Monitoring and demo of an OGF standards based monitoring tool.[return to demonstration programme]

GENIUS: Grid Enabled Neurosurgical Imaging Using Simulation

Thursday 11th September 10:30 - 11:00
The GENIUS project brings together a number of techniques and processes to realise its goal of pulsatile blood flow simulation of the entire brain vasculature. The clinical drive is to provide surgeons with patent-specific information on haemodynamics which can be used in surgical planning and patient management, all provided within clinically relevant time frames.
A new lattice-Boltzmann code, HemeLB, has been developed and optimized for distributed grids so that it can be run efficiently across multiple, geographically distributed resources. While running, the simulation is steered by the clinician using the RealityGrid steering library to alter parameters as it progresses, as well as seeing real-time simulation feedback through the ray tracer built into HemeLB. To facilitate the setting up of such complex jobs on multiple machines we have integrated the Application Hosting Environment (AHE) with the Highly Available Resource Co-allocator (HARC) to run jobs on the UK National Grid Service and the US TeraGrid.
The demonstration will show how this environment can be used within a clinical setting through the GENIUS Toolkit - the interface which controls each step of the workflow: From collecting and processing the MRA scan data, through creating the co-reservations for the simulations and staging the jobs to the machines, to steering the running simulation and observing the results.
