The COMPCHEM Virtual Organisation and the Italian NGI User Support and Training unit ran a hands-on training workshop for computational chemistry researchers. The course attracted 22 researchers from 12 different departments including a remote participant from the Spanish National Research Council in Madrid. It was focused
on porting specific use cases that the students had researched in advance. These use cases were based on three different commonly usedcomputational chemistry applications

2.1. User Support achievements

The NGI_IT user support activity in the las quarter focused on:


- The organisation of the a training workshop address to the computational chemestry community, it was organised by the compchem vo, the user support team and was hosted by the Italian NREN (GARR). The National Interuniversity Consortium of Materials Science and Technology funded three students to attend the course.he course attracted 22 researchers from 12 different departments including a remote participant from the Spanish National Research Council in Madrid:

It was focused on porting specific use cases that the students had researched in advance. These use cases were based on three different commonly used computational chemistry applications: VENUS, QUANTUM ESPRESSO AND CRYSTAL.


- The creation of high level web interfaces for already ported applciations in collaboration with the developer of the Italian Grid Portal (http://portal.italiangrid.it). Applications addressed during the quarter are: FLUKA (hep), Quantum Espresso (compchem), CRYSTAL (compchem and material science)


- Following the organization of the ELIXIR-ITA activities - INFN is now a technological partner for ELIXIR-ITA, togheter with CINECA, GARR and CRS4 - Currently the activity is maninly centered on organizational issues.


- Interacting witht the biocomputing group of the Bologna University to organise a new production, similar to the run run in the past quarters for a BLAST based Apllication. We will probably apply to the Resource Allocation Call with this application.


- Interacting with the Institute for the Biomedical Technologies of the National Reasearch Council (CNR-ITB), Milan Dept., in order to collect three use cases: 1) protein surface simulation 2) parameter sweep application for simulation of biochemical system 3) molecular dynamics. The firts two were already run on EGI by the community and we are investigating how their computing model can be improved to obtain greater efficiency using a mixed HTC/Cloud approach.
