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.

Semantic services grid in flood-forecasting simulations


Flooding in the major river basins of Central Europe is a recurrent event affecting many countries. Almost every year, it takes away lives and causes damage to infrastructure, agricultural and industrial production, and severely affects socio-economic development. Recurring floods of the magnitude and frequency observed in this region is a significant impediment, which requires rapid development of more flexible and effective flood-forecasting systems. In this paper we present design and development of the flood-forecasting system based on the Semantic Grid services [3]. We will highlight the corresponding architecture, discovery and composition of services into workflows and semantic tools supporting the users in evaluating the results of the flood simulations [15]. We will describe in detail the challenges of the flood-forecasting application and corresponding design and development of the service-oriented model, which is based on the well known Web Service Resource Framework (WSRF). Semantic descriptions of the WSRF services will be presented as well as the architecture, which exploits semantics in the discovery and composition of services. Further, we will demonstrate how experience management solutions can help in the process of service discovery and user support. The system provides a unique bottom-up approach in the Semantic Grids by combining the advances of semantic web services and grid architectures.
