Global Lambda Integrated Facility

Research & Applications Working Group

Co-Chairs: Maxine Brown, UIC & Larry Smarr, UCSD


The primary goal of the working group is to train a new generation of scientists on the use of super-networks. The following work items have been identified:

  • User applications [Maxine Brown (UIC) and Larry Smarr (UCSD)]: generate more users and develop a taxonomy to define classifications of LambdaGrid applications.
  • Infrastructure [Jason Leigh (UIC)]: interconnect GLIF sites with HD videoconferencing, tiled displays etc..
  • Research [Cees de Laat (UvA)]: advocate funding agency roadmaps and research programmes, and industry hardware/software development.
