NA4 - APPLICATION IDENTIFICATION AND SUPPORT ACTIVITY in the EGEE PROJECT The purpose of the Application Identification and Support team for the Enabling Grids for E-science in Europe (EGEE) project is to support the induction of new users, new communities and new virtual organizations into the project. The team will also proactively develop and disseminate appropriate information to the relevant groups. One of the main tasks: the migration of applications from a broad range of applications sectors, namely academia, industry and commerce into the EGEE infrastructure
Russian institutes participating in NA4: • Institute of High Energy Physics ( IHEP, Protvino) • Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics ( ITEP, Moscow) • Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR, Dubna) • Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute of Russian Academy of Science ( PNPI, Gatchina) • Russian research Center «Kurchatov Institute» ( RRC KI, Moscow) • Skobeltsin Institute of Nuclear Physics of Moscow State University (SINP MSU, Moscow) • Institute of Mathematical Problems of Biology of Russian Academy of Sciences (IMPB RAS, Pushchino)
NA4 RDIG EGEE Deliverables Participation in DCs & SCs providing necessary feedback to Middleware and Operations Support in the installation of applications in the LCG environment Co-ordination of usage strategy of Russian resources for all the experiments taking into account a specifics of Russian distributed center with the resources common for all HEP experiments. Resources sharing&usage in the accordance with the co-ordinated strategy Participation in ARDA (e.g.: testing gLite facilities for Atlas; in plans - monitoring system (merging it with CMS production and analysis jobs) ) Creation of new (internal) VOs in the RDIG-EGEE infrastructure Identification of Russian participants interesting in their application usage in the EGEE environment Regular training courses & seminars for users (how to obtain CAs and how to join VOs, how to launch applications in the LCG environment etc.).

Russian organisation in EGEE/NA4 HEP For NA4-HEP the organization model is to go via LHC experiments, rather than via institutes (in contrast to other activities). This corresponds to the operational model for Russian Regional LHC Centre
Example of recent courses for HEP users LCG Induction Courses for CMS Users held on September, 6 at JINR: 3 hour lectures: 1) E.Tikhonenko (JINR) "Introduction to the LCG-2" 2) O.Kodolova (SINP MSU) " Getting started with LCG tools for CMS jobs" 3) A.Toropin (INR) "Access to the official DSTs with the usage of CRAB“ 2 hour practical part in the training computing class 9 users participated; the materials are placed at web: http://sunct2.jinr.ru/docs/rdms_1/sept_6.html
New VOs inside the RDIG-EGEE infrastructure: aims & current status aims: • to serve the national scientific projects • to test new application areas before including them into the global EGEE infrastructure current status: creation of the formal procedures and the proper administrative structures in RDIG-EGEE for VOs creation & registration: http://rdig-registrar.sinp.msu.ru/newVO.html – documents and rules; the Council on RDIG-EGEE extension has been formed 5 internal VOs now; near plan: Fusion science; chemical physics institutes
