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.

Towards a federated Metropolitan Area Grid environment: The SCoPE network-aware infrastructure


Grid computing offers us an effective approach, infrastructure and trend for coordinated resource sharing, problem solving and service integration into dynamic, multi-institutional, virtual organizations often spanning several distant sites in a large urban or regional area. In this paper, we discuss opportunities and challenges in the Grid resource management infrastructure and network control plane design, critical to the provision of network-assisted extensible Grid services on the metropolitan scale. Such services can empower a real high performance distributed computing system built on optical transport networks, administered within a single domain and offering plenty of cheap bandwidth to e-science applications. This approach makes the transport infrastructure the main enabling factor of a novel Grid vision, the "Metropolitan Area Grid" (MAG), aiming at unifying many geographically distributed federated computational and storage resources into a common "virtual site" abstraction, so that they can cooperate as if they were in the same Server Farm and Local Area Network. Simply stated, the MAG concept aims to make applications running on our metro Grid infrastructure aware of their complete computational and networking environment and capabilities, and able to make dynamic, adaptive and optimized use of heterogeneous network infrastructures connecting various high-end resources. As a proof of concept, we realized within the SCoPE High Performance Computing environment the prototype of a basic MAG architecture by implementing a novel centralized network resource management service supporting a flexible Grid-application interface and several effective network resource reservation facilities.
