2.1. User Support achievements

During PQ10 NGI_IT user support activities for new communities focused on the following main areas:

- the definition of the grid interfaces for the EMSO project data (, in particular for the NEMO-1 experiment offshore Catania. The work was presented at the TF12 in Prague

<span lang="EN-GB" />- the improvement, acorting to the user community requirements, of IGI Portal high level web interfaces for the NEMO ocean modelling framework ( created during PQ9. This work has been presented at the TF12 in Prague.

-  the improvement of  interfaces the IGI Portal interfaces for the ANSYS software as requested by the INFN SPES experiment community. The porting of the application ( a licensed one) was completed during PQ9. This work has been presented at the TF12 in Prague

- the continuation of the activity started in the previous quarters to

improve the HPC support within the IGI infrastructure. This activity is in collaboration with various Italian sites and user communities to setup an HPC/MPI/Multicore testbed to test the readiness of  the infrastructure for porting of various small and medium coupled parallel applications, i.e. the Einstein Toolkit, NAMD (, RegCM(, AVU-GSR for the ESA GAIA Mission (, Quantum Espresso (, NEMO ocean model (

- A new user community (the Institute for Atmosferic Science and Climate

of the National Reasearch Council - Bologna department) has been contacted and an application of them has been ported to the Grid. A small production has been carried out, we are investigating the possibility to increase the scale of the production and the creation of high level web interface through the IGI portal. Their application is called GLOBO and is a self developed climate forescast model.

- the support to various COMPCHEM communities and applications, in particular effort was devoted to improve the porting of CRYSTAL ( started in the previous PQs

- the organisation and participation to various COMPCHEM meetings focused on the further structuring of the COMPCHEM VO,  on the relationships with other VOs and on new Grid services and applications to be offered to the VO users

<span lang="EN-GB" /> - participation ot the TF12 with five contributions in collaboration with the communities we supported in the previous quartes: i) EMSO ESFRI projects data management, ii) blood circlulation simulation through OPENFOAM in collaboration with the  Mario Negri pharmacolocical Institute iii) ANSYS licensed application porting in collaboration with the INFN SPES experiment iv) Porting the NEMO oceanographic framework v) TopHat to perform alignenemts of RNA-Seq reads to a genome in order to identify exon-exon splice junctions in collaboration with the Mario Boella institute.
