FireGrid project

RAPID-ly Adding Domain-Specific Job Submission and Provenance Systems onto a Demonstrator e-Science Project

NeSC Research Seminar Series
Speaker: 
David Bacigalupo

Rapid is software for rapidly creating domain-specific portlet interfaces that allow jobs to be submitted to resources (e.g. Grid resources), including a wide range of features to "give computational science a friendly face".

In this seminar I will demo the results of my work on the FireGrid project since 1st Jan. in which I have been:

Planning Emergency Movement for the Built Environment

Student: 
Thomas French

The goal of this project is to investigate methods for finding emergency movement plans in dynamic and uncertain environments, specifically buildings. Current techniques used to solve these problems, like (Opasanon, 2004), make unrealistic assumptions about human behaviour during emergency movement. For example, they assume that occupants travelling through a building do not directly interact, and, therefore, provide instructions that presume people who arrive at a decision point at the same time will split up if told to do so.

Topic of this submission: 

FireGrid Cluster for Next Generation Emergency Respond Systems

The goal is to establish a cross-disciplinary collaborative community to pursue fundamental research for developing real time emergency response systems, using the Grid, beginning with fire emergencies.
