About‎ > ‎IGE Collaborations‎ > ‎


The project VERCE (Virtual Earthquake and seismology Research Community e-science environment in Europe) aims to provide a comprehensive architecture and framework adapted to the scale and the diversity of data-intensive applications in data mining and modelling, and integrating the community Data infra-structure with Grid and HPC infrastructures.

A first novel aspect of VERCE consists of integrating a service-oriented architecture with an efficient communication layer between the Data and the Grid infrastructures, and HPC. A second novel aspect is the coupling between HTC data analysis and HPC data modelling applications through workflow and data sharing mechanisms.

This community is central in the European Plate Observing System (EPOS), the ESFRI initiative in solid Earth Sciences.


Joint Work Plan

IGE will work with the VERCE project to support their adoption of Globus within their developed architecture and framework. The specific goals of the collaboration are:
  • for VERCE to supply technical requirements to IGE for Globus
  • for IGE to supply a functional Globus test-suite to VERCE
  • for IGE to provide technical Globus support where required
  • to disseminate the results of the collaboration
  • for IGE to provide training events for VERCE where appropriate
