WP3 report and session Péter Stefán Date: 8 November, 2006 Place: Oslo, Norway
WP3 in general WP purpose: standards and interoperation 5 tasks, all of them are running. Participants: Oxana, Daniel, Balázs, Steffen, Alex Konstantinov, Kosice, Copenhagen, Uppsala, Ferenc, Zsombor, Gábor, Péter Stefán. Results so far: concept justification feedback from gLite ARC interoperability, standards roadmap (D3.3-1), interface survey work, interoperability dissemination events: GGF18, EGEE06, SC06, e-IRG, local media.
T3.1 - interoperation survey Purpose: survey interoperation-capability of different pre-standard grid middleware solutions Challenges: OGF-GIN, read middleware documents and raise unclear questions to authors, comparison table, test-bed, D3.1-1 due on the end of 2006! document content. urgent work is needed!!!
T3.2 - grid gateways Established gLite ARC middleware (non- KnowARC result! Michael’s and Christian’s work). Purpose: establish ARC gLite direction. Ongoing challenges: determine the scope of interoperability (GIS, GSI, data transfer, JM), input from T3.1 (data models, protocols, transformation), activity breakdown. Related work: EUChinaGrid - gLite interoperation work (e-mail list subscription).
T3.3, T3.4 - standards Purpose: T3.3. to build a software that matches standards, T3.4. to initiate standards improvement, iteration D3.3-1 deliverable: standards conformance roadmap OGF, OGSA, WEB, hopefully emerging RTE standards, commonly accepted practice Ongoing challenges: standards implementation feedback, who represents this work on which forum? which are the most important forums for us?
T3.5 - policies Purpose: mutually represent interests in KnowARC - EUGridPMA, KnowARC - TERENA, KnowARC - e-IRG and other European policy making groups. Challenges: get known by each other, scanning for new policy-making groups? e-IRG recommendations on e-infrastructures: generic services replacing project results, application neutrality, interoperability and conformance to standards.
Remarks about the future work My personal expectation: better coordination from myself, higher activity from participants, better communication (say, to establish communication policy within tasks and the WP), keep deadlines (I know it is hard). EU and project expectations: know what’s going on in other tasks, deliverables on time. Next WP meeting? Action items: who does what?
