Development Projects

28 Feb 2005– 31 May 2006

There have been lots of developments in the grid and supercomputing research in Hungary. On the basis of previous research a new field of interest emerged; the so called service oriented supercomputing or distributed virtual supercomputer. The new grid services will be based on student laboratory computers. Although the grid and the supercomputing architectures differ significantly, there is convergence between the two fields. The idea is two unify the best sides of the two “worlds” in order create a service oriented architecture that can be managed safely and securely.

The aim of the project is to develop a standard wireless system architecture that allows:
- secure, managed connectivity of wireless clients, the so called federated, institution wide mobility
- unified, managed user database
- easy to use and standard communication interfaces with different WLAN service providers
- modification of user profiles of central operators could in respect of accessing resources, web pages, VPN-s, bandwidth, usage time
- the collection of statistical information about network usage, e.g. accountability

Project objectives

The aim of the National Cancer Registry GRID (Országos Rákregiszter GRID - ORG) is to develop the next generation of the National Cancer Registry (NCR). The NCR started its operation in 1999 with its central program being the collection, management, and analysis of data on people who have been diagnosed with malignant or neoplastic disease (cancer). The technology behind the NCR is still operable but a bit outdated.

The goal of the project was the renewal of Hungarian Telekom's internet discussion forum system by migrating data from the existing system. A major requirement for the new system was that it must be able to serve the regularly organised public forums, where workers of Telekom can freely and anonymously ask a manager of Telekom on a specific subject. The designated manager answers questions online in a 1-2 hour interval. The old system was not able to serve such forums due to the huge interest with the potential 12.000 employees of Hungarian Telekom.

CityGuide is a joint project of our Institute with the tourism offices of 3 Hungarian cities (Pécs, Eger and Sopron). The project aims to develop a PDA-based information service for tourists offering a wide range of historic, cultural and practical information. Equipped with a satellite navigation receiver, the PDA guides you to the monument selected and displays information material - text and pictures - as well as acoustic information. When entering a museum, the device leads you through the exhibition and offers explanations about the exhibits.

One of the most VITAL features of factories is their ability of
cooperation, quick responses to changes and disturbances. These are
matters of survival, independent of the size of the firms.
The goal of our project is to research and develop new methods for the
real-time management of complex technical and economical systems that
work in changing, uncertain environments. Since our methods come from
various, novel areas of informatics, operational research and knowledge
based systems, their integration will balance the aspects of

The objective of the program is to prepare reference studies that analyse the results of those research and pilot activities in the courses of which web, digital TV and mobile technology integrating eLearning solutions have been developed. "Ubiquitous learning" is the type of life-long learning that is customized to persons. It is the next generation of electronic learning. It allows easier access to courseware both in the areas of informal and non formal learning and it contributes to ensuring higher mobility for the citizens of Europe.

The gradual deployment of broadband networks throughout the research community and the fact that network capacity grows with much greater rate than CPU power and storage capacity (Moore's Law vs. storage improvements vs. optical improvements) have led to the creation of a distributing environment for sharing resources known as the Grid paradigm. This integrated networking & middleware environment is also called eInfrastructure.

The EGEE project brings together experts from over 27 countries with the common aim of building on recent advances in Grid technology and developing a service Grid infrastructure which is available to scientists 24 hours-a-day.

The project aims to provide researchers in academia and industry with access to major computing resources, independent of their geographic location. The EGEE project will also focus on attracting a wide range of new users to the Grid.

The project will primarily concentrate on three core areas:

The eLearning project of NIIF ( National Information Infrastructure Development Program ) was initiated with the objective of promoting the wide scale utilisation of eLearning technologies in the education institutions of NIIF using the excellent network infrastructure of NIIF.
