An ESA funded project with the following objectives: 1.The identification of the common and generic technology elements essential for the establishment of a collaborative environment that supports web-based domain-specific vertical organisations; 2.Identification of common interface mechanisms for data, applications and service establishment, including “exchange languages” for the interaction and exploitation of available resources; 3.Implementation of prototypes, i.e. the implementation of collaborative environments with representative applications and services for domain-specific vertical organisations involving the Earth science domain.

4 THE VOICE KO403/03/2004 Introduction to THE VOICE Who is composing the Consortium? Industrial partners with good basic technological competence and complementary excellence, with strong complementary backgrounds in application disciplines, already involved in several on-going activities on e-collaboration environments at National and EU level.

5 THE VOICE KO503/03/2004 Introduction to THE VOICE Why? Partners’ traditional focus is on innovation, with a long record of international RTD projects The new enabling technologies such as GRID, Web Services, Workflow, Wireless, P2P are shaping the future of ICT market, paving the way to concept of ambient intelligence, a fundamental gap in information society foundations, as WWW was in the 90’s Collaborative environments are a typical application field where a merge of these technologies is required and may be profitably transferred towards several complex thematic disciplines

6 THE VOICE KO603/03/2004 Introduction to THE VOICE Which focus?

17 THE VOICE KO1703/03/2004 eCollaboration Technology Survey Goals To identify technologies helpful for VOs To identify [emerging] Standards for those technologies To identify the [emerging] tools To identify (a) suite(s) of such tools for a generic infrastructure

18 THE VOICE KO1803/03/2004 Generic, but not too much so needs to be focussed... Target Vertical Organisations (i.e. borderlines) User Segments EO / Earth Sciences (only?) Sources within and outside ESA – all integrated Researchers (s.a. Universities) and Commercial (e.g. Products) Products and Services – all integrated and offered eCollaboration Technology Survey

19 THE VOICE KO1903/03/2004 Technology areas include GRID (both data access and processing) Webservices Wireless, mobile and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Conferencing and established “offline” communication methods (s.a. newsgroups and forums) Document sharing (centralised + distributed) and configuration management eCollaboration Technology Survey

20 THE VOICE KO2003/03/2004 GRID Data access (s.a. ESA’s OpenGRID or DataGRID) Large numerical processing (shared infrastructure) Resource management and scheduling “Standard” middleware – Globus and Unicore Points to be addressed by the survey GRID seems ideal for us – but is it? What Standards are emerging (e.g. OGSA, OGSI) What extras does {GRID + webservices} provide? Security eCollaboration Technology Survey

21 THE VOICE KO2103/03/2004 Webservices WSDL XML and SOAP COM, CORBA and.NET Points to be addressed by the survey XML is CPU and volume costly  metadata only for large EO products?

26 THE VOICE KO2603/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Definition – Step 1 Analysis of ES domain requirements, classification according to main functionality and different layers of the reference infrastructure:

27 THE VOICE KO2703/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Definition – Step 1 Applications Layer will contain any useful high-level functionality that is needed for ES domain eCollaboration. Connection Layer will contain requirements related to connectivity like for instance the ones related to network performance requirements, connection topology, storage and computational resource, security issues.

28 THE VOICE KO2803/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Definition – Step 1 Middleware Layer will contain requirements split according to the main basic functionality: User Management, the ones related to single user management, like enrolling, authentication, accounting, rights and priorities handling, and group management; Data Management, the ones related to data representation, archiving, registration, access, sharing, search, retrieval; Service Management, the ones related to service providing, registration, search, invocation, composition enabling; Workflow Management, the ones related to complex and integrated service/data access and any other kind of service composition.

29 THE VOICE KO2903/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Definition – Step 2 Selecting for each functionality the most effective technology This mapping must be performed taking into account well defined parameters already analysed in the eCollaboration Technology survey: availability, easiness in integration, maturity and standardisation are among the most important to be considered Collaborative Elements definition will result from mapping functionality and related technology

30 THE VOICE KO3003/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Definition – Step 3 Integration and harmonisation of identified Collaborative Elements will provide the ES Collaborative Environment design SpaceGRID outcomes on defining technological hints for providing seamless access to data, application and resources in the EO domain will also be taken in due account

31 THE VOICE KO3103/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Definition – Ph2 Plan Definition of a detailed plan for providing ESA with an effective testbed for the Collaborative Environment where the proposed prototypes will be developed and deployed in the Phase 2 In order to prepare for the prototype design and development activities of Phase 2, during Phase 1 each of the Consortium partners involved in these activities will suitable tailor the proposed prototypes

32 THE VOICE KO3203/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Definition – Ph2 Plan For each prototypes the following information will be identified and reported: Actual actors that will be involved in the prototypes Collaborative Elements needed to enable required interactions Required interfaces mechanisms between Collaborative Elements, either they are already available or they have to be developed Workflow Management mechanisms that will be used to rule the Vertical Organisation activity

33 THE VOICE KO3303/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Definition – Ph2 Plan In practice, starting from: ES Collaborative Environment design; detailed description of the prototypes that will be deployed; a significant subset of the environment will be selected and a detailed plan for setting it up and make it operable will be provided.

34 THE VOICE KO3403/03/2004 ES-generic Collaborative Environment Set Up Set up at ESRIN premises a possibly generic Collaborative Environment infrastructure for ES domains that: is compliant with the Collaborative Environment definition provided in Phase 1 fulfils the purpose of the proposed prototyping activities in Phase 2 within the ESRIN available resources and infrastructure
