Collaborative Technologies for Distributed Science

Full Title: Collaborative Technologies for Distributed Science: Fusion Science and High-Energy Physics
Date & Time: 17 Oct 2006 at 11:00
Event Location: FCC1
Event Info: This presentation will state the case that (1) both Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) and High-Energy Physics (HEP) in the US are and will by highly reliant on scientific collaborations, and (2) the overlap between the requirements for FES and HEP are substantial and justify joint research which will increase the benefits to both programs. The goal is to significantly enhance scientific collaborations. This can be accomplished through the development and deployment of new tools and technologies into the working environments of Fusion Energy Sciences and High-Energy Physics. There are two main elements to the foreseen need, collaborative workspaces and secure computational services. Experimental and theory/computational programs will greatly benefit through the provision of a flexible, standards-based collaboration space, which includes advanced tools for ad hoc and structured communications, shared applications and displays, enhanced interactivity for remote data access applications, high performance computational services and an improved security environment. The technologies developed should be prototyped and tested on the current generation of experiments and numerical simulation projects. At the same time, the effort should maintain a strong focus on the needs of the next generation of mega-projects, ITER and the ILC.

Speaker: David P. Schissel, General Atomics, DIII-D National Fusion Facility
