Desktop Grids can be categorized as a successful type of distributed infrastructure that is widely used in science and industry; both the largest Grids for science and in industry are based on this technology. The presentation provides an overview of Desktop Grids and their place in the infrastructure world.
15:30 Working with a BOINC based Grid (1h30') Nikolay Khrapov (MSU)
Presentation and hands-on experience with installing a BOINC middleware based Desktop Grid, developing and deploying a sample application.
17:00 Integrating Desktop Grids with Service Grids (30') Robert Lovas (MTA SZTAKI)
This presentation provides an overview of the results achieved in the frame of EDGeS project about integrating different infrastructures, especially from the view of EGEE /EGI users.
The presentation with examples will show that how to add EDGeS bridged Desktop Grid resources to a Virtual Organisation, and how to manage the applications for that infrastructure.
18:20 Porting applications to the Grid using the EDGeS Application Development Methodology (45') Robert Lovas (MTA SZTAKI)
This part of the tutorial introduces the EDGeS Application Development Methodology. So far more than 20 applications from fields of bio-science, chemistry, physics, engineering, e-market, etc. have been ported to EDGeS. Case studies of tools that make the application development easier and examples for applications that have been ported to EDGeS using the EADM are presented.
19:05 P-GRADE portal as high-level front-end for developers and users (45') Robert Lovas (MTA SZTAKI)
The last part will demonstrate the P-GRADE portal Desktop Grid related facilities with applications that can be executed on the integrated EDGeS infrastructure.
