A Rapid Approach to Enabling Domain-Specific Applications

Presentation Type: 

The philosophy of our system, which we call Rapid, is to deliver customised graphical user interfaces that allow a domain specialist to achieve certain tasks. These tasks make use of domain-specific applications that require much computational resources; a requirement which is satisfied by translating the task into one or several computational jobs to be performed on Grid Computing infrastructures and HPC facilities. The customised interface will allow the task to be performed without referring to terminology about the underlying computational infrastructure. Moreover, the system allows to expose particular features of applications as not to overwhelm the user. The intention is to allow the completion of these tasks as simple as ordering a flight using any compliant web browser.
