Virtual atomic and molecular data centre
MetadataShow full item record
A large-scale computational project has been recently launched to develop the Virtual Atomic and Molecular Data Centre (VAMDC). It involves several research groups from the European Union (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, UK), the Russian Federation, Serbia and Venezuela. VAMDC intends to deploy an advanced and secure cyberinfrastructure for providing an interoperable e-science environment for existing distributed atomic and molecular databases. These databases are used in a variety of research and industrial fields such as astrophysics, atmospheric physics, fusion, environmental sciences, lasers and lighting. Research groups from Venezuela, namely from IVIC and CeCalCULA, will make use of the EELA grids and storage elements for upgrading, testing and tuning atomic database services and applications such as TOPbase, TIPbase, OPserver and XSTAR. In the present report we will describe the project guidelines, especially in reference to the training of potential users and expertise dissemination in Latin America.
