Dr. Fabrizio Gagliardi, CERN

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN will soon be producing around 10 Petabytes – the equivalent of about 20 million CDs – of data per year in the quest to better understand the origin of matter. This huge amount of data can only be analysed with the help of distributed computing, by sharing computing and data storage resources independent of their geographic location. By linking computing centres and supercomputers "The Grid" can provide these massive computing and data management resources in a very cost-effective way.

Dr. Fabrizio Gagliardi will present the international "Enabling Grids for E-Science" (EGEE) project, which develops such a computing Grid infrastructure. Expanding from two initial pilot application domains, high-energy physics and biomedicine, the project today supports applications ranging from earth sciences to computational chemistry.
