9 JRA-3 / EMDAF  Each of 5 Working Tasks of JRA-3 / EMDAF has 2 responsible leaders and a team (group of scientists / labs);  Coordination of EMDAF, as a distributed RI, will be performed by the Board of Experts (leaders of Tasks);  To reach its goals on establishing dedicated modelling and data analysis services, JRA3 / EMDAF will develop and provide: - Specialized user services within particular Tasks; Flexible schedules - Topic oriented tutorial teams + communication - Broad advertising of the available services  Collaboration of many laboratories and individual scientists will be ensured by 1) Joint authorship of papers and the inclusion into mission teams; 2) strict & clear copy right policy; 3) Reimbursement of compu- tational service and software R&D work on a sub-contract basis;  Cooperation with other activities in EUROPLANET (NA1, NA2, JRA-IDIS). ● Organizational principles & management :

10 Planetary Object (phenomenon) To be observed Set of observing tools: -- g.-based telescopes, -- space missions Observers Supprot staff Coordinated observations ● General similarity with coordinated observations: Scientific research discipline N2 DWGs Research scientists Numerical problem; Simulation or data analysis task Set of numerical tools: -- Comp.facilities -- Num.codes/algorithms Computer scientists Simulation experts Support staff Coordinated simulations JRA-3 / EMDAF

11 EMDAF within EUROPLANET FP7 will gain and foster the syner- gies of coordinated and coherent use of available computational modelling and data analysis RIs (computational resources and services, data bases). It will serve as a prototype of a new kind of pan-European inter- national Research Infrastructure which will provide the scientific community with the dedicated services in the field of computa- tional modelling and data analysis. ● European/International Perspectives:

12 ♦ Community Coordinated Modeling Center - Goals:  provides, to the international research community, access to modern space science simulations and supports the transition of modern space research models to space weather operations : by an automated request system for model runs by modern, online, visualization and analysis tools by standard data formats for simulation data downloads  tests and evaluates models: against standard metrics through event studies, and through real-time calculations in support of the needs of science users and space weather forecasters  supports Space Weather forecasters : through transitioning of research models to operations through model evaluations through the provisions of forecasting tools JRA-3 / EMDAF ● Similar activities world-wide :

13 ♦ Variety of Model Runs in CCMC:  Runs on Request: is a free service open to any scientist interested in running a space weather model that resides at the CCMC. You have to register with name and and are allowed to make up to 4 different submissions per day. Outputs of all runs are archived on the CCMC's data storage systems and are publicly accessible by means of CCMC tools.archived Possibility of costumized runs via a « special request » manually treated by the CCMC staff, including extending run duration, creating a new simulation grid, modification of standard boundary conditions and other minor code modifications. CCMC staff is always available to answer questions regarding model results and their applicability to specific science problems. Furthermore, CCMC staff will assist users in the interpretation of simulation results if requested.  Instant Run: models are available for instant execution and results viewing through an online interface.  Real Time Run: periodically executed real time simulations and its results viewed online.
