GridChem partners announce access grid event

October 04, 2005

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The GridChem partners announced today their upcoming Access Grid (AG) event, GridChem: An Application Oriented Computational Grid, to be held on October 10, 2005, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. EST, at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus.

With the computational chemistry community's growing demand for grid computing, the GridChem project is responding to the needs of these researchers by enhancing the cyber-infrastructure. An easy-to-use interface now lowers the usage barrier far beyond anything imagined to date, and provides that interface to the entire community ( The environment consists of a three-tiered architecture including a client, grid middleware server, and distributed high-end computational resources.

"With this architecture we have created an environment that will revolutionize grid computing for computational chemists," said John Connolly, GridChem principal investigator. "We are pleased to have the opportunity to showcase the Computational Chemistry Grid (CCG) during our Access Grid event, as well as in our various activities at Supercomputing 2005 (SC05). We invite researchers from all disciplines to see how CCG makes grid computing more accessible."

General topics for the workshop include:For detailed information about the event, see the general announcement at under announcements.

In addition to the AG event on October 10, GridChem will host a "Birds of a Feather" meeting on November 15, 2005 at 5:15 p.m. and a workshop on November 18 at 8:30 a.m. at SCI05 in Seattle. The GridChem partners with SC booths will display posters and give demonstrations of the GridChem client.

GridChem partners include the Center for Computational Sciences / University of Kentucky, Center for Computation and Technology / Louisiana State University, National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) / University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, OSC, and Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) / University of Texas. The project is supported by the National Science Foundation NMI Program under Award #04-38312.
