Grid and Cloud Computing Meet at GlobusWORLD 2011

Annual conference will showcase new Globus technologies and user successes.

Researchers, software developers, and cyberinfrastructure providers will convene at GlobusWORLD 2011 to see and experience new technologies at the intersection of grid and cloud computing.

GlobusWORLD 2011, to be held April 11-13 at Argonne, near Chicago, will feature Globus user success stories, expanded software-as-a-service capabilities in Globus Online, updates on Globus Toolkit development, and sneak peeks into new features in the pipeline. For more information and to register, visit the GlobusWORLD web site (

The conference will reinforce the dual themes that define Globus: “Use the Grid” and “Build the Grid”. For researchers that want to improve their access to high-performance computing (HPC) resources, the file transfer software-as-a-service (SaaS) provided by Globus Online offers an easy way to start using the grid without requiring installation and configuration of complex, costly IT. For HPC resource owners, and scientific communities that want a grid customized to their particular needs, Globus Toolkit components provide the foundation for building robust, scalable grid solutions.

GlobusWORLD 2011 will showcase:

New Globus Online features that solve the "last-mile" problem of moving data between GridFTP-enabled resources, such as HPC data centers, and users’ local machines

Native packaging in the new Globus Toolkit 5.2 release that greatly simplifies installation and configuration on common operating systems

SaaS-based file transfer capabilities delivered to users of HPC facilities, such as the NERSC and ALCF supercomputer centers

Creative applications of Globus within distributed research communities, such as the caBIG cancer grid, Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN), Earth System Grid, and the Initiative for Globus in Europe (IGE)

User success stories about research progress catalyzed by Globus technology

New and enhanced Globus Toolkit components, including a major update to jGlobus 2.0 that simplifies Globus integration with modern Java applications

Presentations and demonstrations will also introduce, and provide opportunities for feedback on, new Globus features in the pipeline, such as Globus Online support for data sharing.

A day of tutorials after the conference provides an opportunity for hands-on interaction with both Globus Online and Globus Toolkit. The tutorials are designed for users at all levels, and include introductory sessions as well as in-depth discussions of selected topics. This is a unique opportunity for end-users to learn how they can use Globus in their research activities, and for developers to explore how to integrate Globus capabilities into their IT infrastructure.

“This year’s conference promises to be even more engaging than past events, as we see existing Globus Toolkit users, and many researchers that are new to grid and cloud computing, starting to adopt software-as-a-service for their data management needs”, said Ian Foster, director of the Computation Institute, and Globus co-inventor. “We have a highly engaged set of users that are actively helping to shape the future of Globus, and we look forward to continuing these collaborations at GlobusWORLD”.

GlobusWORLD is a conference by users, for users. While the core Globus team has much to communicate, community involvement is what has made the event successful in the past. If you would like to present at this exciting event, visit GlobusWORLD 2011 is co-located with the Cloud Computing and Applications 2011 Conference (CCA-11), providing a forum for attendees at both events to make connections with their peers. Social events and contests throughout the conference will provide more opportunities for fun interaction among Globus users and developers.

Globus technology supports thousands of research projects worldwide in disciplines ranging from high-energy physics and imaging based science, to health informatics and social sciences. Globus development and operations are supported by funding from the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, Argonne, the University of Chicago, and the EU-sponsored Initiative for Globus in Europe.

About the Globus Team
The Globus Toolkit and Globus Online are collaborative efforts of a community led by a team housed at the Computation Institute (CI), a joint initiative between the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory. Globus contributors span the globe, and include the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, Initiative for Globus in Europe, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: Transparente Beschichtung für Alltagsanwendungen

Sport- und Outdoorbekleidung, die Wasser und Schmutz abweist, oder Windschutzscheiben, an denen kein Wasser kondensiert – viele alltägliche Produkte können von stark wasserabweisenden Beschichtungen profitieren. Am Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) haben Forscher um Dr. Bastian E. Rapp einen Werkstoff für solche Beschichtungen entwickelt, der sowohl transparent als auch abriebfest ist: „Fluoropor“, einen fluorierten Polymerschaum mit durchgehender Nano-/Mikrostruktur. Sie stellen ihn in Nature Scientific Reports vor. (DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15287-8)
