What is the status of e-Infrastructures high speed connectivity across India and with Europe and with the Asia-Pacific Region? How fundamental is global computing connectivity for the full deployment of existing Grid computing e-infrastructures?
The “CHAIN - EU-IndiaGrid2 Workshop on Research Applications of High Speed Connectivity Across Europe, India and the Asia-Pacific Area” will offer some answers to these questions presenting the best showcases for the network exploitation for research applications in domains where international collaboration and sharing of e-Infrastructures have been most valuable. Presentations will include use cases highlighting the benefits of such connectivity in cases of High Energy Physics - data transfer to and from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN; Protein Crystallography – remote use by scientists at BARC, Mumbai, of an FIP beamline in Grenoble, France. The workshop will also highlight the potential of India – EU – Asian grid collaboration for simulations and realtime classroom applications.
With the far-reaching potential of Indian – European and Asian grid collaboration including climate change/weather simulations and realtime classroom applications, the status and perspectives of NKN-GEANT connectivity through TEIN3 will also be examined during the workshop. The impact on Euro-India collaboration in Research activities, and the contribution of EU-IndiaGrid2 support to collaboration between researchers from Europe and India in a wide range of scientific areas will be discussed, as well as the possibility offered by the gateway the Asia-Pacific e-Infrastructures offered by the TEIN3 connectivity.
