SEE-GRID Expanding the eInfrastructure inclusion into South-East Europe! Prof. Vasilis Maglaris GRNET - Greek Research & Technology Network Dublin, April 2004
2 SEE-GRID: Expanding the eInfrastructure inclusion into South-East Europe! Assist in the creation of Grid awareness in the SE European states by linking National initiatives to the pan-European and worldwide Grid efforts Enable smaller, less-resourced sites to access computing power & to participate in Networking & Training activities Ease the digital divide and release the scientific & productive talents of the SEE region Establish a paradigm for inclusion of non- beneficiaries of EGEE into the extended ERA Key elements: The participation of CERN and EGEE SE-Federation Members - the MoU between EGEE & SEE-GRID

Dublin, April GÉANT + SEEREN Communication Network IPv6 GRIDs Scientific/Application Areas Foundation: SEEREN
Dublin, April SEEGRID Technical Objectives Migrate and test Grid middleware components and APIs developed by pan- European and national Grid efforts in the regional infrastructure. Deploy (adapt if necessary) and test Grid applications developed by EGEE (Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid, Biomedical Grids) in the regional infrastructure. Demonstrate an additional Grid application of regional interest (e.g. earthquake prediction, meteorology/climate). Integrate available pilot Resource Centers of Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, FYR of Macedonia, Serbia-Montenegro and Turkey into the EGEE- compatible infrastructure. Expand the operations and support center of the EGEE SE Europe Federation to cater for the operations in the above countries. Establish and operate a Regional “Catch-all” Certification Authority (CA) SEEGRID is part of the EUGrid PMA as a “relying party”
Dublin, April Creation of Awareness Objectives Create a human network in the area of Grids, eScience and eInfrastructures in SE Europe and promote awareness in the region regarding Grid developments. Integrate incubating and existing National Grid infrastructures in all SEE- GRID countries. This will be accomplised by building upon and exploiting the infrastructure provided by GEANT and SEEREN in the region. Establish a dialogue at the level of policy developments for national grid initiatives and provide input to the agenda of national governments and funding bodies Pursue dissemination conferences, training material and demonstrations for hands-on experience, in coordination with EGEE, which will promote the project results to the private and public sector, ultimately reaching the general public.
Dublin, April Memorandum of Understanding Migrate and test Grid middleware components and APIs developed by pan-European Grid efforts (e.g. EGEE, etc) in the regional infrastructure - SEE-GRID WP3 / EGEE SA1 Migrate (adapt if necessary) and test Grid applications developed by EGEE (Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid, Biomedical Grids) in the regional infrastructure - SEE-GRID WP3 / EGEE NA4. Integrate available pilot Resource Centers of Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, FYRoM, Serbia-Montenegro and Turkey into the EGEE infrastructure. Expand the operations and support center of the EGEE SE Europe Federation” Promote awareness in the region regarding Grid developments through dissemination conferences, training material and demonstrations for hands-on experience, in coordination with EGEE, which will promote the project results to the private and public sector, ultimately reaching the general public.
