    1. 1. Macedonian Academic and Research GRID Initiative – MARGI Prof. d-r Aneta Buckovska, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies Ss Cyril and Methodius University [email_address]
    2. 2. Scientific Research and the Grid <ul><li>Scientific research is the foundation of quantitative knowledge and understanding of our surroundings </li></ul><ul><li>This understanding enables technologies that simplify and improve our daily lives </li></ul><ul><li>Scientific research is increasingly a team sport requiring that distributed virtual communities collaborate using shared tools and resources </li></ul><ul><li>The Grid was invented to make such sharing and collaboration possible using information technology </li></ul>
    3. 3. CERN LHC Computing Grid (LCG)‏ <ul><li>Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be world’s largest scientific instrument when operational in 2007 (EXPECTED) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Started 8.9.2008 at 10:00 o’clock </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Will generate 12-14 PetaBytes of data per year </li></ul><ul><li>Requires world-wide grid for data analysis </li></ul>

    5. 5. National GRID Initiatives <ul><li>National Grid Initiatives (NGIs) can be defined as concentrated efforts taken at National level in order to deploy, operate, and expand grid infrastructures in a coherent and coordinated way </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1.a.2. Macedonian Academic Research Grid Initiative - MARGI established </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Official date of start: April 15th 2005 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Established under SEE-GRID project and UNESCO HP Project </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1.a.3. NGI initiating body </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Initiated by SS Cyril and Methodius University (UKIM), Skopje </li></ul></ul></ul>
