96. Tsunami Wave Propagation Forward and Inverse Simulation and Scientific Gateway Building for Disaster Mitigation
Eric Yen (AS)
Manila trench and Ryukyu trench are the two hazardous subduction zones which might cause disaster tsunami to South East Asia countries if a megathrust earthquake caused by any of the two trenches. This EGI-Engage Disaster Mitigation Competence Centre aims to develop novel approaches of real-time tsunami simulation over the Grid and Cloud by COMCOT-base fast forward tsunami wave propagation...

The focus of structural biology is shifting from single macromolecules produced by simpler prokaryotic organisms, to the macromolecular machinery of higher organisms, including systems of central relevance for human health. Structural biologists are expert in one or more techniques. They now often need to use complementary techniques in which they are less expert. Instruct supports them in...
80. User needs, tools and common policies from PARTHENOS, a E-research networking in the field of linguistic studies, humanities and cultural heritage
Sara Di Giorgio (Central Institute for the Union Catalogue of Italian Libraries)
PARTHENOS (Pooling Activities, Resources and Tools for Heritage E-research Networking, Optimization and Synergies) is an European project funded within Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The project started in May 2015 and has a duration of 48 months. PARTHENOS aims at strengthening the cohesion of research in the broad sector of Linguistic Studies,...

Life sciences in general, and medical research in particular, have increasing needs in terms of computing infrastructures, tools and techniques: research in domains such as genomics, drug design, medical imaging or e-health cannot be undertaken without the adequate computing and data solutions. Yet generalizing the use of large scale and distributed infrastructures requires time and effort,...
From 1970 to 2012, about 9000 high impact weather events (HIWE) were reported globally: all together, they caused the loss of 1.94 million lives and economic damage of US$ 2.4 trillion (2014 UNISDR report). Storms and floods accounted for 79 per cent of the total number of disasters due to weather, water, and climate extremes and caused 55% of lives lost and 86% of economic losses. These...
