Supporting Large-Scale Data-Intensive Computation for Seismology in VERCE

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

One of the objectives of the VERCE project (Virtual Earthquake and Seismology Research Community in Europe –
http://www.verce.eu/) is to provide scientists with a unified, Europe-wide, computing environment able to support
data-intensive scientific computation. The term “data-intensive” is used to characterise computation that either
requires or generates large volumes of data, or that its data access patterns are complex due to algorithmic or

Gary McGilvary selected as an CERN openlab summer student 2013

Gary McGilvary has succeeded against considerable competition in obtaining a position on the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme.

CERN openlab is a unique public-private partnership between CERN and leading ICT companies. Its mission is to accelerate the development of cutting-edge solutions to be used by the worldwide LHC community. The openlab Summer Student Programme gives students the chance to work with some of the latest hardware and software technologies and see how advanced IT solutions are used in high energy physics.
