e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Mass production of event simulations for the BaBar experiment using the Grid


The BaBar experiment has been taking data since 1999, investigating the violation of charge and parity (CP) symmetry in the field of High Energy Physics. Event simulation is an intensive computing task, due to the complexity of the algorithm based on the Monte Carlo method implemented using the GEANT engine. The simulation input data are stored in ROOT format, they are classified into two categories: conditions data for describing the detector status when data are recorded, and background triggers data for including the noise signal necessary to obtain a realistic situation. In order to satisfy these requirements, in the traditional BaBar computing model events are distributed over several sites involved in the collaboration where each site manager centrally manages a private farm dedicated to simulation production. The new grid approach applied to the BaBar production framework is discussed along with the schema adopted for data deployment via Xrootd/Scalla servers, including data management using grid middleware on distributed storage facilities spread over the, INFN-GRID network. A comparison between the two models is provided, describing also the custom applications developed for performing the whole production task oil the grid and showing the results achieved.
