We explain how new e-science technology can be used to make modern seismology analyses available via web browsers. These analyses will be run on local compute clusters. The users of the analysis packages do not have to be aware of any of the underlying e-infrastructure; they focus on the domain-specific task at hand.

Medical imaging acquired primarily for patient diagnosis is also of value for research and teaching. The Data Protection Act (1998), which regulates the use of personal data, indicates that only the identifying data that is required for a purpose should be held. At this moment, no commonly accepted solution exits because the amount of personal data that is required by research and teaching changes case by case.

Rapid is a cost-effective and efficient way of designing and delivering portal interfaces to applications that require remote compute resources. The aim of Rapid is to make completing these tasks as simple as ordering a DVD or booking a ﬂight on the web.
Rapid is a unique approach to quickly designing and delivering web portal interfaces for applications that require large amounts of computing resources or that need to run on specific servers. The approach consists of defining the resources, application use and user interface in one XML file. This file is then validated and translated directly into a live portlet that can be inserted into a portal container. The whole process can be performed without any conventional programming. Rapid provides all the necessary components for handling compute-jobs.
The National e-Science Centre coordinates the e-Science effort for the UK. It has a number of activities, one of which is research. This research is interdisciplinary, where Informatics is applied in the context of solving large and complex scientific problems. Such problem solving requires much computational effort and often involves large amounts of data. In this talk I will show the two major components of our research by providing examples of our research projects: 1. To apply Informatics to solve scientific computational problems and 2.
Rapid is a unique way of quickly designing and delivering portal interfaces to applications that require grid or high performance computing. We will demonstrate how this has been used as part of the ENGAGE initiative in the context of computational chemistry.
In this talk I will be describing my work on performance modeling, which I have been conducting in partnership with IBM Hursley and IBM Research. This focuses on making performance modeling easier to use by users with limited modeling expertise, in the domain of distributed enterprise systems.
