  • Project name: Gridport
  • Contact: Eric Roberts
  • Web page:
  • Demo schedule:
  • Description: The GridPort Toolkit (GridPort) enables the rapid development of highly functional grid portals that simplify the use of underlying grid services for the end-user. It comprises a set of portlet interfaces and services in the portal layer that provide access to a wide range of backend grid and information services provided by lower-level grid technologies including the Globus Toolkit, the Grid Portal Information Repository (GPIR), and Condor. Portlets expose the backend services via customizable web interfaces in order to enable personalization of grid portal user interfaces. Portal services support the portlets inside the portal layer by augmenting their capabilities in an extensible and reusable way while tying the portlets together in order to make them more cohesive. GridPort is intended for use by developers of grid-enabled portals, portlets, and applications.
  • What we are using CoG for: Globus job submission and GridFTP file transfer portlet interfaces

  • Project: GEON
  • Web Page:
  • CoG use: Uses the GSI https service as well as GSI and other funcions of the CoG kit.
  • Description: The goal of GEON is to advance the field of geoinformatics to prepare and train current and future generations of geoscience researchers, educators, and practitioners in the use of cyberinfrastructure to further their research, education, and professional goals. Geoinformatics will foster new interdisciplinary research, for example, the gravity modeling of 3D geological features, such as plutons; study of active tectonics by integrating LiDAR data and geodynamics models; and, study of lithospheric structure and properties across diverse tectonic environments.



  • Project Name: Ninf
  • Contact:
  • Web Page:
  • What we are using CoG for: Ninf-G is a reference implementation of the GridRPC API, a proposed recommendation at the GGF. Currently, two versions of Ninf-G are available, Ninf-G version 2 and version 4. Both versions are implemented using the Globus Toolkit C API and Java CoG Kit to work with basic Grid services, such as GSI, WS-/Pre-WS GRAM, and MDS in the Globus Toolkit. Hiding the complexity of the Globus Toolkit, Ninf-G enables easy development and execution of Grid applications. Now, Ninf-G 2.4.0 has been included in the NSF Middleware Initiative (NMI) Release 8 which was distributed in October 18, 2005. Ninf-G is the first non-US software in NMI. At SC05 research exhibit, AIST will introduce Ninf-G activities including large-scale nano-science application on Japan-US Grid testbed and Ninf-G version 4. AIST booth is #723.

  • Project Name: TENT - The Integrated Simulation Environment TENT
  • Contact: Andreas SChreiber is at SC2005, you can reach him at
  • Description: TENT is a component-based framework for the integration of technical applications. TENT allows the engineer to design, automate, control, and steer technical workflows interactively. The applications are therefore encapsulated in order to build components which conform to the TENT component architecture. TENT is used for workflow integration in several projects, for CFD workflows in turbine engine and aircraft design, in the modeling of combustion chambers, and for virtual automobile prototyping.
