Summary on Grant Application Form
We plan to construct a Grid test-bed to enable the realistic modelling of complex condensed matter systems at the molecular and mesocale levels, and for the discovery of new materials. High performance computing and visualisation are critical to this test-bed: they provide a synthetic environment for modelling to be compared and integrated with the reality provided by experimental data; we will provide Grid hardware and middleware that will allow these to be coupled in an environment optimised for scientific discovery. RealityGrid involves active collaboration with industry: AVS, SGI and Fujitsu on the underpinning computational issues, Schlumberger and the Edward Jenner Institute for Vaccine Research on end-user scientific applications in the conjunction of modelling, simulation, informatics and experimental research.
