Video 1: Soundbytes from the interviews to Peter Higgs, Francois Englert, Carl Hagen and Gerald Guralnik, recorded at CERN on the announcement of the latest results from ATLAS and CMS on the Higgs boson searches.

Video 2: "They got sentimental when thinking of Higgs" - Physicists give their thoughts on the Higgs Boson: including Nobel Prize winners Gerhard 't Hooft, David Gross, George Charpak, Jerome Friedman, Murray Gell-Mann plus Vivek Sharma, Guido Tonelli and Gigi Rolandi (CMS), Eilam Gross and Joao Guimaraes da Costa (ATLAS) and theoretical physicists Guido Altarelli and John Ellis.


We deliver the EGI-InSPIRE annual report  on the HUC Tools and Services: a public report describing the current status of the tools and services provided within SA3, their activity over the past year, and the future activities including measures to assure sustainability of the current work.

BIONIC Hill is an IT and hi-tech park located in a picturesque green area within Kyiv city limits. A successful project uniting the frontiers of science with business and everyday life, respect and care for a unique and unspoiled slice of nature, an unprecedented standard of living and unrivalled chances for continual personal development – these are the main principles behind the BIONIC Hill concept.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and most complex experiment, at the cutting edge of High Energy Physics. Particle physicists use the LHC to study variations from the Standard Model and discover potential new laws of physics. The particle known as the top quark is a window to this weird and wonderful world.

The LHC produces enormous amounts of data, enough to fill piles of DVDs. Marcel Vreeswijk and Hurng-Chun Lee from NIKHEF explain how customised grid computing workflows are key to filtering and sieving the dataset down to a manageable size. Without these tools, it would be impossible to pick out the collision event that could hold the clues to top quark behaviour.

The TERENA Networking Conference (TNC) is the largest and most prestigious European research networking conference - over 500 participants including decision makers, networking specialists and managers from all major European networking and research organisations, universities, worldwide sister institutions and industry representatives attend.

This event comprises a collaboration between EGI and SHIWA for the conduct of two linked workshops about workflows in e-Science. It is anticipated that there is sufficient commonality in the attendance at each of the two workshops for them to be run 'back to back’ and thereby for each to benefit from enhanced attendance and greater impact.


Stories from the Grid Episode 2


The epigonion was the guitar of Ancient Greece but since none survived the passing of time, it hadn't been heard for centuries. Until now.

Using a technique called physical modelling, Domenico Vincinanza recreated the sound of the instrument's 48 strings as digital files. With the help of grid computing resources from the European Grid Infrastructure, it took him just a few hours. In a single core computer he would need a month. The epigonion's sounds can now be downloaded and played by any musician using a simple keyboard.

This workshop is split into two parts. The first part allows the user communities to identify the key services they need and how they expect them to be sustained. If not sustained by themselves, what is the business case for the e-infrastructure provider (or other entity) to sustain them? The second half of the workshop brings in other sustainability issues from the e-infrastructure and technology providers to consider the sustainability of the EGI ecosystem as a whole.
