The ever increasing needs of the scientific community for more computing power necessitates the use of a new computing model. The Grid comes to meet this challenge. The Institute of Nuclear Physics has been one of the pioneers of this paradigm in Greece, through the participation to the European program Crossgrid and the HellasGrid committee. The Institute administers and runs a local Grid cluster within the CMS experiment, and helps the administration of local Grid clusters in UoA and NTUA.
The Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics is coordinating the Direct User Support Group.The work group purpose is to consolidate and coordinate all the User-centric , application oriented support activities in EGEE. The DUS work group responsibilities is related with the daily and direct support of user requests. more info>
