VERCE

The VERCE project aims at studying and developing a working framework for running data- and computationally intensive applications in the seismology domain.

Integration versus Diversity: who wins?

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
invited

The presentation was given to the 41st Workshop of the International School of Geophysics, Erice, Italy, "A Roadmap for Earth Science in Europe: The next generation of Geophysical Research Infrastructures". The meeting was organised by EPOS, ORFEUS, COOPEUS and NERA. I was supposed to talk about massive data processing strategies, but as you will see, I saw that many other frequently occurring impediments to success with data were more dominant, so I tried to draw attention to these issues.

Supporting Collaborative Scientific Workflow Development:The Dispel Information Registry

Presentation Type: 
talk

Large-scale distributed workflow systems for science are nowadays expected to operate in a consistent, predictable way as well as to promote collaboration between researchers or within groups in a unified way. In this talk we will discuss the VERCE Information Registry, which is designed to provide a consistent view of the VERCE ecosystem for seismology along with related architectural requirements, assumptions and interactions with other components.

The VERCE Architecture for Data-Intensive Seismology

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

Typical of the digital revolution, seismology is changing rapidly: the number of deployed seismometers grows rapidly, their performance and connectivity improve and seismologists employ data from other sources, such as LIDAR, satellite images and GPS. But their computational behavior is also changing: they used to just focus on earthquakes, today the use all of the continuous waveform. Just what does this mean for the science and the computational infrastructure to support it? The VERCE project is pioneering this approach and will provide examples during the talk.

The VERCE Architecture for Data-Intensive Seismology

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

One of the main objectives of the VERCE project (Virtual Earthquake and Seismology Research Community in Europe) is to provide scientists with a unified, Europe-wide, computing environment able to support data-intensive scientific computation. This talk will be mainly about our approach to designing and building this infrastructure. More specifically, I will present the current computing environment, the rationale for designing our solutions around the workflow paradigm as well as the basic components of the architecture and their interactions.

Towards Supporting Service-Oriented Seismology Research in Europe

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
poster

Modern seismologists are presented with increasing amounts of data that may help them better understand the Earth's structure and systems. However: 1) they have to access these data from globally distributed sites via different transfer protocols and security mechanisms; 2) to analyse these data they need to access remote powerful computing facilities; 3) their experiments result in yet more data that need to be shared with scientific communities around the world.

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

VERCE WP9-JRA2: Architecture Components and Perspectives

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
invited

An overview of the achievements of the architecture and tools work package in VERCE over the last 12 months:
* the mapping of the major CPU-intensive and data-intensive use cases to he one framework,
* the provision of an integrating framework supporting both discussion and implementation,
* the support of two demonstrators: from CPU & data-intensive use cases.
The plans for the next 12 months:
* scale up and reliability
* completion of the registry and other components needed for a quality beta test of the VERCE platform

Supporting user communities with customised science gateways – The SCI_BUS project

Speaker: 
Dr Tamas Kiss,

Grids and clouds are providing robust infrastructures for scientific applications. However, the wider take-up of these technologies have been limited for a long time due to the lack of user friendly interfaces that enable e-scientists to get transparent access to these platforms.
Science gateways are frameworks (or toolsets) which incorporate applications, data and tools to enable running applications on Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs) in a user friendly and intuitive way.

Data-Intensive Interdisciplinary Research Advances

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
invited

The turbulent global digital-data revolution is delivering a bonanza of research opportunities. In most disciplines these promise significant advances in understanding, but today we have to invest unsustainable amounts of intellectual effort and energy to obtain those advances because our conceptual tools and their supporting technology have not yet grown to meet the challenge of data wealth. The talk reviews some of the ways in which we can sharpen our data-intensive tools and discuss early experiences in several application areas.
