1 Investment for the Future of PRAGMA Progress Since PRAGMA 10: PRAGMA 11 Osaka University 15 – 17 October 2006

2 PRAGMA Excitement Cyclone Larry Tropical cyclone Larry is seen striking the coast of Australia in this satellite image.

3 Magnitude OFF THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN 2006 October 10 23:58:07 UTC

4 NSF Renews PRAGMA for Five Year Thanks to the work of all of us

5 And what is expected of PRAGMA? Validate the investments in cyberinfrastructure One (not to be lost in) translation: Have scientist use the grid to do science!

6 Savannah Burn: How tightly linked are burning, vegetation, and rainfall? PRAGMA Testbed ran CSIRO climate model called CCAM in combination with Nimrod/G tool set. Executed on a maximum of 90 processors (out of a maximum 159) across 7 PRAGMA grid resources located in Australia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and the U.S. David Abramson, Amanda Lynch

7 Validation of Cyberinfrastructure Investments by the Savannah Burn experiment Science Resulted: The hypothesis that burning the Savanna can affect the strength and timing of the monsoon was confirmed. Testbed Exercised: The testbed operated for 170 days, and delivered over 1.25 million processor hours! Importantly, we were able to do a live upgrade of a number of the cyberinfrastructure components during the period. Middleware Improved: Improved Nimrod's ability to schedule computations by incorporating both data location and transport delays. –Allowing it to make a better choice of resources, improving the performance of the system as well as its fault tolerance. –We also enhanced Nimrod's ability to handle faults in the Grid testbed. Policy Impacted: The experiment shipped some 1.6TB of data across national and international networks. This exposed some interesting features of Australias network charging policy, and will lead to lasting improvements.

8 PRAGMA Overview and Approach Process to Promote Routine Use Team Science Application-Driven Collaborations ApplicationsMiddleware Routine Use Lab/Testbed Testing Applications Building Grid and GOC Multiway Dissemination Key Middleware Workshops and Organization Information Exchange Planning and Review New Collaborations New Members Expand Users Expand Impact Outcomes Improved middleware Broader Use New Collaborations Transfer Tech. Standards Publications New Knowledge Data Access Education

9 PRAGMA Continues to Experiment Expand our impact to new application areas –GEO and Geosciences*; Metagenomics* Increase emphasis on data in our routine use laboratory –Establish data grid testbed* (AIST, SDSC, Tsukuba, NCHC) –GEO and Geosciences and others Harness the potential of lambda grids –Telescience and Tile Display Walls* with demo at SC06 Work with productions grids to achieve interoperations –Grid Interoperations Now (GIN)* Broaden involvement of middleware developments from outside the Pacific Rim –U Amsterdam; UK National e-science Center, U Zurich Build the community –Develop federated approach to training and to establishing research directions* –Understand organizational aspects of how virtual organizations work* * Well already be seeing results of some of these activities
