Announcement - New workflow for fusion applications on the grid

The fusion community has a new tool to make its work a little more simple and more accurate.

“When we run simulations of fusion reactors we have different codes to describe different fields and these codes are run on different architectures,” sais Paco Castejon of CIEMAT. One code may be best suited for high performance computing, another might be best for grid. However, the output of one code often is part of the input for another. Since the problems are connected the solutions should be as well.

“We’d like to run these codes on the same architecture. Their results would be better blended, giving us better answers and making the work simpler.”

With this in mind, collaborators from EGEE, EUFORIA and DEISA (with the coordination of CIEMAT, Spain and Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center, Poland) built a new complex workflow for fusion applications that run both on grids and HPCs. The main tool to establish the workflow was Kepler, a standard middleware in the European Fusion community.

This information was presented at the 5th EGEE User Forum in Uppsala, Sweden. Click here to see a demonstration of the workflow.
