The Open Science Grid, a nationwide community grid built by research groups from United States universities and national laboratories, will showcase advanced grid technologies and innovative scientific applications at SC|05, the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking and storage.
Presentations and demonstrations at 13 booths will show how scientists from diverse fields contribute manpower and resources to the OSG and benefit from easy access to local and remote resources, testing and production environments for middleware and applications, and a common computing infrastructure. Over 20 member organizations representing more than 50 institutions and hundreds of researchers contribute to the OSG and benefit from access to shared resources worldwide, including over 10,000 CPUs and many terabytes of data storage.
The U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford Linear Accelerator Center exhibit, Booth 302, is dedicated to the OSG as well as the high-performance networking, computing and scientific advances from the two national laboratories. OSG-related demonstrations and presentations at SC|05 will include:
- Astronomy and astrophysics: Sloan Digital Sky Survey astronomers are running several applications on the OSG, including a search for near Earth objects and the processing of tens of thousands of spectra to determine the properties of quasars. LIGO physicists use the OSG to search for gravitational waves from the binary inspiral of neutron star systems.
- Physics: The CMS experiment uses the OSG for computing and data-intensive particle physics simulations, and will use the grid for data analysis when the Large Hadron Collider begins operating at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. OSG collaborators from the CMS and ATLAS experiments participated in the LHC Service Challenges, which earlier this year sustained a continuous data flow of 600 MB/s on average for 10 days f
