AGATA—Advanced GAmma Tracking Array

Abstract: The Advanced GAmma Tracking Array (AGATA) is a European project to develop and operate the next generation γ-ray spectrometer. AGATA is based on the technique of γ-ray energy tracking in electrically segmented high-purity germanium crystals. This technique requires the accurate determination of the energy, time and position of every interaction as a γ ray deposits its energy within the detector…

Developing UML Diagrams

This is a curated collection of resources for becoming familiar with UML diagrams. In particular with Use Case Diagrams, Class Diagrams and Sequence diagrams. In 1997 UML was adopted as a standard by the Object Management Group (OMG), and has been managed by this organization ever since. In 2005 UML was also published by the…

Blueprinting Approach in Support of Cloud Computing

Abstract: Current cloud service offerings, i.e., Software-as-a-service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings are often provided as monolithic, one-size-fits-all solutions and give little or no room for customization. This limits the ability of Service-based Application (SBA) developers to configure and syndicate offerings from multiple SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS providers to address their application requirements. Furthermore,…

On Engineering Cloud Applications – State of the Art, Shortcomings Analysis and Approach

Abstract (Engineering Cloud Applications): Recently, Cloud Computing has become an emerging research topic in response to the shift from product-oriented economy to service-oriented economy and the move from focusing on software/system development to addressing business-IT alignment. From the IT perspectives, there is a proliferation of methods for cloud application development. Such methods have clearly shown considerable…

How to use the literature review for your research

Let’s talk about how to use a literature review for your research. I know that sometimes the amount of information available regarding a particular topic is overwhelming. Consequently if you are approaching research for the first time you may be disoriented and experience information overload. This is mainly due to these factors that are in…

Warming up the Research Engine

This post is everything that you need to know for warming up your research engine and do your “first step”. If is time to warm up the research engine: You have a supervisor and you discussed with him/her a possible topic for your thesis. You already browsed a few scientific articles related to the topic…

The many faces of the integration of instruments and the grid

Abstract: Current grid technologies offer unlimited computational power and storage capacity for scientific research and business activities in heterogeneous areas all over the world. Thanks to the grid, different virtual organisations can operate together in order to achieve common goals. However, concrete use cases demand a closer interaction between various types of instruments accessible from…

GridCC

Grid Enabled Remote Instrumentation with Distributed Control and Computation (GridCC)

The goal of GridCC was to exploit Grid opportunities for secure and collaborative work of distributed teams to remotely operate and monitor scientific equipment using the Grid’s massive memory and computing resources for storing and processing data generated by this kind of equipment. The project aims to extend the state of the art of computing…
