The European consumption of plastics increased from 24,6 Mtons in 1993 to 39,7 Mtons in 2003 and its growth rate exceeds that of the economy as a whole. At the same time, polymer recyclers and manufacturing industries have a problem buying feed materials and secondary polymers of sufficient volume and quality, as a result of the pull of China and India on all raw material...

DEISA2, funded under the European Commission's FP7 programme, continued to develop and support distributed high performance computing infrastructure by consolidating the existing infrastructure established during the first phase of the project, DEISA1, and extending the collaborative environment for capability computing and data management. The resulting infrastructure was unmatched in the...

At the time of designing this project, the adoption of multi- and many-core chips as the architecture-of-choice for mainstream computing will undoubtedly bring about profound changes in the way software is developed. In particular, the use of fine grained locking as the multi-core programmer's coordination methodology is viewed by most experts as a dead-end. The transactional...

The objective of the ELIXIR preparatory phase was to produce a memorandum or memoranda of understanding between organisations (government agencies, research councils, funding bodies and scientific organisations) within the member states, with the purpose of constructing a world class and globally positioned European infrastructure for the management and integration of...

The overall objective of the XtreemOS project was the design, implementation, evaluation and distribution of an open source Grid operating system (named XtreemOS) with native support for virtual organizations (VO) and capable of running on a wide range of underlying platforms, from clusters to mobiles.

The approach proposed in this project was to...

The main aim of this project was to extend DEISA (Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications), an existing FP6 I3 Grid empowered research infrastructure. Rather than being a new I3 initiative, eDEISA should therefore be understood in the context of the existing DEISA supercomputing grid research infrastructure.

DEISA...

DEISA (Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications) brought together a consortium of leading national supercomputing centres aiming to support pan-European, world-class computer-science research.

The aim of the first phase of the DEISA project, funded under the European Commission's FP6 programme, was to implement and operate a...
