SEE-GRID eInfrastructure for regional eScience (SEE-GRID-SCI)

eInfrastructure in Europe has reached a mature state where the GÉANT network forms a backbone on top of which a distributed computing infrastructure – the Grid – provides processing and storage services for eScience research. The South-East European eInfrastructure initiatives are committed to ensuring equal participation of the less-resourced countries of the region in European trends. SEEREN initiative has established a regional network and its GÉANT connection and the SEE-GRID initiative the regional Grid. Hereby proposed SEE-GRID-SCI will leverage the SEE eInfrastructure to enable new scientific collaborations among SEE user communities. SEE-GRID-SCI will stimulate widespread integrated eInfrastructure uptake by new cross-border user groups extending over the region, fostering collaboration and providing advanced capabilities to more researchers, with an emphasis on strategic groups in seismology, meteorology and environmental protection. The initiative thus aims to have a catalytic and structuring effect on a variety of user communities that currently do not directly benefit from the available eInfrastructures. In parallel, it will enlarge the regional eInfrastructure to cater for demands of the communities: a number of new Grid clusters and countries will be added, engaging a wider range of players and expanding the provider pool. Finally, SEE-GRID-SCI will help mature and stabilise the National Grid Initiatives in the region, allowing them to join the new era of longer-term sustainable Grid infrastructure in Europe. In this context, SEE-GRID-SCI will aim to attract political and financial support for materializing the eInfrastructure vision. In longer term, SEE-GRID-SCI aspires to contribute to the stabilisation and development of South-East Europe, by easing the digital divide and stimulating eInfrastructure development and adoption by new user communities, thus enabling collaborative high-quality research across a spectrum of scientific fields.


Filtering of satellite images in geological lineament analyses: an application to a fault zone in Central Turkey
Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi (1998-04-01)
Lineament extraction and analysis is one of the routines in mapping large areas using remotely-sensed data, most of which is the satellite images. In this study, we aimed to test different lineament extraction techniques including single band, multiband enhancements and spatial domain filtering techniques. A fast algorithm has been developed for time and cost limited surveys in an area with known dominant and/or any selected orientation of lineaments. During the study for single band analysis, histogram equ...
SCIentific gateway Based User Support (SCI-BUS)
Şener, Cevat(2014-9-30)
SCI-BUS will create a generic-purpose gateway technology as a toolset to provide seamless access to major computing, data and networking infrastructures and services in Europe including clusters, supercomputers, grids, desktop grids, academic and commercial clouds. SCI-BUS will elaborate an application-specific gateway building technology and customisation methodology based on which user communities can easily develop their own customised gateways. SCI-BUS will use the gateway technology and customization m...
Design and development of an ontology based multi-agent virtual enterprise system /
Sadigh, Bahram Lotfi; Akkök, Metin; Kılıç, Engin; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2015)
Major developments in computers and information technologies, enable industrial and mechanical engineers to establish new net based, virtual collaboration platforms for enterprises. Benefiting from virtual enterprise platform enterprises will be able to combine their resources and capabilities on project based collaborations meanwhile protect their independent mainstream policies and secure their secret information. This concept is called virtual enterprise(VE). Virtual Enterprise (VE) is a collaboration mo...
Carrier Phase Shift Method of SPWM for Concurrent Wired and Wireless Power Transfer Systems
Ayaz, Enes; Altun, Ogün; Keysan, Ozan (2022-01-01)
IEEEThis paper presents an approach for concurrent power transfer to wired and wireless systems using just a single inverter. The approach utilizes a novel carrier phase-shift (CPS) method that independently controls the inverter output voltages at the fundamental and switching frequencies. This proposed method can be a cost-effective solution to wireless power transfer (WPT) systems used in contactless slip rings (CSR), which transfer power to auxiliary loads such as sensors, radars, and IoT devices. There...
An End-to-End Security Auditing Approach for Service Oriented Architectures
AZARMİ, Mehdi; BHARGAVA, Bharat; Angın, Pelin; RANCHAL, Rohit; AHMED, Norman; SİNCLAİR, Asher; LİNDERMAN, Mark; BEN OTHMANE, Lotfi (2012-10-11)
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is becoming a major paradigm for distributed application development in the recent explosion of Internet services and cloud computing. However, SOA introduces new security challenges not present in the single-hop client-server architectures due to the involvement of multiple service providers in a service request. The interactions of independent service domains in SOA could violate service policies or SLAs. In addition, users in SOA systems have no control on what happens...
