Feasibility study on running Computational Chemistry HTPC skeletons on EGI and XSEDE

EGI and XSEDE are major research infrastructures, providing access to high throughput computing (HTC) and high-performance computing (HPC) resources and services to the research community in Europe and the US, respectively. This teleconference was setup to discuss the use case application that have been submitted from the computational chemistry domain to the joint call of the EGI and XSEDE e-infrastructures. See the computational chemistry application document attached to this agenda below. See the text of the XSEDE-EGI call at http://www.egi.eu/community/xsede-egi_cues.html.

The activities outlined in the computational chemistry application document aim to "perform a feasibility study on running HTPC skeletons by exploiting the two infrastructures...For this purpose we propose a set of use cases that provide real life requirements to this activity."

During this teleconference the use cases, the skeletons and the support required for these from the EGI and XSEDE e-infrastructures will be discussed. Expected outcome of the meeting are: 
  • Clarification on the resource levels required to support the skeletons and use cases (computing, data, software, support and other types of resources).
  • A description of the patterns of usage of EGI and XSEDE resources and services by the HTPC skeletons.
  • Identification of the most significant limiting factors to using these resources and services by the HTPC skeletons. These factors could include barriers that are currently hindering your work or issues that need to be addressed to make the collaborative use of resources easier.

The teleconference will be hosted in the EGI Webex system. Details of the booking:
