Integrating and managing services for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC-hub)
Integrovanie a manažment služieb pre európsky cloud pre otvorenú vedu
Annotation: The EOSC-hub project creates the integration and management system of the future European Open Science Cloud that delivers a catalogue of services, software and data from the EGI Federation, EUDAT CDI, INDIGO-DataCloud and major research e-infrastructures. This integration and management system (the Hub) builds on mature processes, policies and tools from the leading European federated e-Infrastructures to cover the whole life-cycle of services, from planning to delivery. The Hub aggregates services from local, regional and national e-Infrastructures in Europe, Africa, Asia, Canada and South America. The Hub acts as a single contact point for researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research. Through the virtual access mechanism, more scientific communities and users have access to services supporting their scientific discovery and collaboration across disciplinary and geographical boundaries. The project also improves skills and knowledge among researchers and service operators by delivering specialised trainings and by establishing competence centres to co-create solutions with the users. In the area of engagement with the private sector, the project creates a Joint Digital Innovation Hub that stimulates an ecosystem of industry/SMEs, service providers and researchers to support business pilots, market take-up and commercial boost strategies. EOSC-hub builds on existing technology already at TRL 8 and addresses the need for interoperability by promoting the adoption of open standards and protocols. By mobilizing e-Infrastructures comprising more than 300 data centres worldwide and 18 pan-European infrastructures, this project is a ground-breaking milestone for the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud.

Designing and Enabling E-infrastructures for intensive Processing in a Hybrid DataCloud (DEEP-HybridDataCloud)
Návrh a sprístupnenie e-infraštruktúr pre intenzívne spracovanie v hybridnom dátovom cloude
Annotation: The key concept proposed in the DEEP Hybrid DataCloud project is the need to support intensive computing techniques that require specialized HPC hardware, like GPUs or low latency interconnects, to explore very large datasets. A Hybrid Cloud approach enables the access to such resources that are not easily reachable by the researchers at the scale needed in the current EU e-infrastructure. We also propose to deploy under the common label of “DEEP as a Service” a set of building blocks that enable the easy development of applications requiring these techniques: deep learning using neural networks, parallel post-processing of very large data, and analysis of massive online data streams. Three pilot applications exploiting very large datasets in Biology, Physics and Network Security are proposed, and further pilots for dissemination into other areas like Medicine, Earth Observation, Astrophysics, and Citizen Science will be supported in a testbed with significant HPC resources, including latest generation GPUs, to evaluate the performance and scalability of the solutions. A DevOps approach will be implemented to provide the chain to ensure the quality of the software and services released, that will also be offered to the developers of research applications. The project will evolve to TRL8 existing services and technologies at TRL6+, including relevant contributions to the EOSC by the INDIGO-DataCloud H2020 project, that the project will enrich with new functionalities already available as prototypes, notably the support for GPUs and low latency interconnects. These services will be deployed in the project testbed, offered to the research communities linked to the project through pilot applications, and integrated under the EOSC framework, where they can be further scaled up in the future.

Development of software tools for analysis and synthesis of schedulers for cloud computing
Návrh softvérových nástrojov pre analýzu a syntézu plánovačov pre počítanie v cloude
Annotation: Modern scientific problems require significant computing resources, so the problem of resources optimization in multiprocessor environments is very important. We will focus on cloud systems as one of the most recent and promising fields of high-performance computing. Cloud computing systems operate in complex heterogeneous environments. It is common to have a single physical server with many simultaneous programs from different users competing for computing and network resources. In most cases, especially for public cloud, the user is unable to control the distribution of resources.The allocation algorithms may contain defects and inefficiency and this can lead to a significant increase in processing time, that is why cloud computing require efficient algorithms providing flexible and stable allocation of resources. The problem is in unfair and uneven access to resources, caused by heterogeneity of users and their tasks where each user is rational agent that tries to increase its share of resources. This could bring the system to the inefficient equilibrium., so a key element of cloud systems are efficient algorithms for load distribution – schedulers and brokers, providing services to users.The idea of this project is to apply game-theoretic approach to the problem of scheduling and allocation of computing resources in dynamic heterogeneous environment with many competitive users and provide software tools based on game-theoretic construction.Another idea of the project is an optimization approach that respects the requirements of end-users. This task will be modelled as a multi-criteria optimization problem. Each objective of the optimization will be associated with a weight. The weight will express the priority of the optimization objective. This way of the optimization will enable the end-users to adjust it to their needs. The problem will be sorted out in a general way so the solution will support various cloud providers.The project continues the previous cooperation of our Institute in constructing adaptive methods for programming high-performance computing on heterogeneous multiprocessor systems.

PROviding Computing solutions for ExaScale ChallengeS (PROCESS)
Poskytovanie výpočtových riešení pre výzvy v oblasti ExaScale
Annotation: The PROCESS demonstrators will pave the way towards exascale data services that will accelerate innovation and maximise the benefits of these emerging data solutions. The main tangible outputs of PROCESS are five very large data service prototypes, implemented using a mature, modular, generalizable open source solution for user friendly exascale data. The services will be thoroughly validated in real-world settings, both in scientific research and in industry pilot deployments. To achieve these ambitious objectives, the project consortium brings together the key players in the new data-driven ecosystem: top-level HPC and big data centres, communities – such as Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project – with unique data challenges that the current solutions are unable to meet and experienced e-Infrastructure solution providers with an extensive track record of rapid application development. In addition to providing the service prototypes that can cope with very large data, PROCESS addresses the work programme goals by using the tools and services with heterogeneous use cases, including medical informatics, airline revenue management and open data for global disaster risk reduction. This diversity of user communities ensures that in addition to supporting communities that push the envelope, the solutions will also ease the learning curve for broadest possible range of user communities. In addition, the chosen open source strategy maximises the potential for uptake and reuse, together with mature software engineering practices that minimise the efforts needed to set up and maintain services based on the PROCESS software releases.

Methods and algorithms for the semantic processing of Big Data in distributed computing environment
Metódy a algoritmy pre sémantické spracovanie veľkých dát v distribuovanom výpočtovom prostredí
Annotation: The research proposed in this project follows up on the successes achived in 7th FP projects in which most of the research team has participated: ADMIRE: Advanced Data Mining and Integration Research for Europe (2008-2011), Commius : Community-based Interoperability Utility for SMEs (2008-2011), VENIS: Virtual Enterprises by Networked Interoperability Services (2011-2015) and EGI-InSPIRE: Integrated Sustainable Pan-European Infrastructure for Researchers in Europe (2010-2014). Several case studies from these projects have created the motivation for research in the area of semantic processing of Big Data in a virtual computational environment. A big challenge in the proposed project will be to study new methods, approaches and algorithms. The proposal also builds on two previous VEGA projects: Selected methods, approaches and tools for distributed computing (2012-2015) and New methods and approaches on information processing and knowledge bases (2013-2015).

Urgent Computing for Exascale Data (U-COMP)
Urgentné počítanie pre Exascale dáta
Annotation: Current challenges of the European research area in computer science place emphasis on integration of research infrastructures, move to e-services, open access to data and reusability of services, data and research results. Furthermore, European infrastructures now move toward processing of Big Data and even exascale data, using novel modes of HPC such as urgent computing. The ability to use exascale systems to provide urgent decision making support critically depends on the ability of the supercomputing centers to provide urgent computing as a new use mode. We strongly believe that urgent computing must be a service provided by the future European computing centers. This will have the dual benefits of immediate delivery of societal benefits of the best performing (at any given time) systems, combined with their ability to optimize the design of the future operational centers with urgent computing capability. These challenges are best tackled by merging web services as the premier e-service paradigm, semantic web technologies for ease of data discovery and cloud computing as a flexible deployment platform. We would like to help to further our understanding of the e-service composition and orchestration challenges when done on a massive scale, and to allow the operators and users of e-services to truly enter the era of Cloud Computing by providing methodology, architecture, tools and standards which will make it easier, safer, and also less expensive to adopt true Cloud Computing and distributed service-oriented applications en masse. Thus we have chosen four research domains which we want to target in this proposal:• composition and orchestration of e-service processes with support of urgent computing;• use of semantic web technologies in describing the services and domain components of the processes;• interoperability of cloud environments and HPC resources and their compatibility with urgent computing;• scalable and distributed aggregation and analysis of data

EGI: Integrated Sustainable Pan-European Infrastructure for Researchers in Europe (EGI-InSPIRE)
EGI: Integrovaná udržateľná pan-európska infraštruktúra pre vedu v Európe
Annotation: Scientific research is no longer conducted within national boundaries and is becoming increasing dependent on the large-scale analysis of data, generated from instruments or computer simulations housed in trans-national facilities, by using e-Infrastructure (distributed computing and storage resources linked by high-performance networks).The 48 month EGI-InSPIRE project will continue the transition to a sustainable pan-European e-Infrastructure started in EGEE-III. It will sustain support for Grids of high-performance and high-throughput computing resources, while seeking to integrate new Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs), i.e. Clouds, SuperComputing, Desktop Grids, etc., as they are required by the European user community. It will establish a central coordinating organisation, EGI.eu, and support the staff throughout Europe necessary to integrate and interoperate individual national grid infrastructures. EGI.eu will provide a coordinating hub for European DCIs, working to bring existing technologies into a single integrated persistent production infrastructure for researchers within the European Research Area.EGI-InSPIRE will collect requirements and provide user-support for the current and new (e.g. ESFRI) users. Support will also be given for the current heavy users as they move their critical services and tools from a central support model to ones driven by their own individual communities. The project will define, verify and integrate within the Unified Middleware Distribution, the middleware from external providers needed to access the e-Infrastructure. The operational tools will be extended by the project to support a national operational deployment model, include new DCI technologies in the production infrastructure and the associated accounting information to help define EGI’s future revenue model.

Emergency Responder Data Interoperability Network (REDIRNET)
Systém pre dátovú interoperabilitu záchranných zložiek
Annotation: Over the past 5 years the majority of the REDIRNET consortia have participated in Projects SECRICOM and FREESIC;this has involved partners engaging significantly with a wide range of public safety officers across the EU. A benefit of thisengagement has been the recognition that in addition to agency interoperability of communications a pressing need existsfor agency interoperability of additional IT systems such as databases, sensor systems and cameras. REDIRNET providesa framework for addressing this need with detailed mapping of user preferences and related legal requirements usinginnovative technologies.The consortium is aware that frequently it is non-technical issues that hinder agency interoperability regardless of the qualityof technical solutions. Consequently user engagement across a range of agencies EU-wide will be ongoing throughout theduration of REDIRNET. This will lead to the first of two elements of the REDIRNET framework – a quality repository of useridentified interoperability issues and proposals for their resolutionThe second element of REDIRNET will be technology. REDIRNET will provide a decentralized framework for interoperabilityfor first responders’ systems based on a public meta-data gateway controlled by the agencies themselves via a REDIRNETsocio-professional web. Agencies will be able link up to partner agencies of their choice and operational need; they will alsobe able to manage the scope of such interoperability. To help set up these link-up arrangements REDIRNET will be enhancedwith semantic web methods in accordance with the vocabulary and processes of the user community. Inter-operatingagencies will need only to develop one gateway (to REDIRNET) leading to a cost effective solution; agent technologies willalso be developed to facilitate the integration of user systems into REDIRNET.

Adaptive Interoperability Framework for Private and Public Sector (AIIA)
Adaptívna platforma na podporu interoperability v súkromnom a verejnom sektore
Annotation: Existing interoperability solutions are suitable only for large enterprises and lack of cheap, easy to integrate and easy to customize solutions. We believe such solution need to be build above existing ICT infrastructure (email, web) available in most of enterprises and organizations. We propose to build interoperability solution on top of email communication. Email communication is used in most of enterprises on daily bases to acomplish interoperability tasks manualy. We believe that such approach for interoperability can have significant impact by not forcing users to change working tool (they can stay with email), by delivering interoperability solution above existing ICT and by providing tool which can be easily customize for concrete application.AIIA can be used also in eGovernment, by solving interoperability problem among different governmental offices. This is especially true in countries as Slovakia, where public bodies have basic ICT infrastructure as email and web but lack of interoperability solutions and thus people need to act as interoperability layer by bringing stamped papers from one office to another.

Efektívne nástroje a mechanizmy pre gridové čítanie
Annotation: Computational Grids are facing a rapid development in the recent time. Although the main domain of their use is in the fields of science and research, computing capacity providing by grids also attracts commercial organizations from industry, finance or medicine. However, there are many areas in grid computing that need to be improved in order to use grid efficiently: security, workflow, data management. The aim of this project is to analyze and propose improvement of the basic features and to create tools for efficient use of grid computing

Intelligent methods for large scale information processing
Inteligentné metódy pre spracovanie rozsiahlych informačných zdrojov
Annotation: At present the amount of information available in digital form is increasing steadily. However, increasing volumeresults in so-called information overload – i.e. much information is available which we are unable to sort, integrateor retrieve adequately. The largest group of digital data is that created by humans, such as text, documents,pictures, videos. The onset of web 2.0 applications and of electronization of banking or travel transactions resultsin generating huge amount of data. However, data generated in the above manner contain much information,primarily about links among real world and digital objects, but this valuable information is hard to find in the hugevolumes of available data. The project handles research and development of such methods which would makethis partially possible. Simultaneously, the project is aimed at analysis, creation and verification of suchinformation processing methods and algorithms which are able to process, manage, retrieve and accessinformation large scale.

Intelligent technologies for knowlege oriented organizations
Inteligentné technológie pre znalostne orientované organizácie
Annotation: An important aspect in building knowledge economy is an ability of organizations to assess their knowledge capital. Technologies and knowledge are becoming a key factor in productivity growth. This is the reason why companies support knowledge management projects in their organizations and strive to use their knowledge management to the largest possible extent. The objective of the project is to support companies heading towards the knowledge economy by extending existing and creating new models, algorithms, technologies and tools that can help organizations in their transition to a knowledge oriented corporation. Such transition should be preceded by an analysis and processing of information resources in organizations including documents, electronic communication and databases in an effect to manage and create availability and sharing of relevant information and knowledge. The project focuses in particular on the areas of knowledge modeling, service oriented architectures, distributed knowledge bases, semantic annotation, knowledge mining, case based reasoning and statistical methods. Special attention is devoted to processing of information resources in the Slovak language, where techniques based on neural networks and ontologies will be used.

CSG Modelling is part of almost all CAD-systems for the modelling of solid state matter. Numerous theoretical investigations and implementations have been carried out. Besides its advantages CGS models need still to be modified into envelope representations for many applications. Parametrizing and real time capabilities are getting lost by this process.
European links: The project will run in strict conjunction with CP93-9554 DODECAS
The Modelling will be made capable of real time by focussing on a subset of CSG Models. Generic storage in databases will be established by using appropriate canonization of representations. Deductive retrieval of variants will be eased substantially.
