SEARCHiN –SEARCHing In a Networked world: started: 1st December 2006; duration: 48 months; contract no. 042467

healthware Recent developments in Grid Computing, the World-Wide Web, and Global Computing are turning the Internet into a network-centric computing infrastructure whose scope, scale, and user-base grow at an impressive pace. In the SEARCHiN project (SEARCHing In a Networked world), we plan to combine methods from parallel and distributed computing, meta-data management, information retrieval, and the semantic Web in order to achieve the scientific and technological advances necessary to bring the simplicity and effectiveness of Web search right at the core of future global, network-centric computing systems.

SaferNet: started: 7th December 2004; duration: 24 months; contract no. SIAP2004HL21
SafeWebThe SaferNet programme funds SafeWeb the Cypriot hotline for reporting illegal and harmful content. The coverage of the SaferNet extends to new online technologies, including mobile and broadband content, online games, peer-to-peer file transfer, and all forms of real-time communications such as chat rooms and instant messages primarily with the aim of improving the protection of children and minors. Action will be taken to ensure that a broader range of areas of illegal and harmful content and conduct of concern are covered, including racism and violence.

A consortium consisting of University of Cyprus and the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas, FORTH (Greece) has been selected to be the hotline for Cyprus.

CROSSGRID: Development of Grid Environment for Interactive Applications
CrossGRIDThe Cross Grid project will develop, implement and exploit new Grid components for interactive compute and data intensive applications like simulation and visualisation for surgical procedures, flooding crisis, team decision support systems, distributed data analysis in high-energy physics, air pollution combined with weather forecasting.
The elaborated methodology, generic application architecture, programming environment, and new Grid services will be validated and tested thoroughly on the CrossGrid testbed, with an emphasis on a user friendly environment.

The work will be done in close collaboration with the Grid Forum and the DataGrid project to profit from their results and experience, and to obtain full interoperability. This will result in the further extension of the Grid across eleven European countries.

EMISPHER: Euro-Mediterranean Internet-Satellite Platform for Health, medical Education and Research

EMISPHER EMISPHER (Euro-Mediterranean Internet-Satellite Platform for Health, Education and Research) is a project co-funded by the European Commission in the frame of the programme EUMEDIS that aims at promoting cooperation between the countries of the mediterranean area.

The 17 project partners are mostly institutions from the Health sector : hospitals, medical faculties, agencies and ministries, associations, education centres etc.

Their role is to organise and participate to initiatives that aim to :

  • Foster networking between all health care professionals in the Euro-Mediterranean countries
  • Develop the virtual Euro-Mediterranean Medical University, establish durable medical and scientific links
  • Offer high-level remote-consultation services and remote medical expertise
  • Facilitate the participation of Mediterranean countries in medical and pharmacological research, as well as clinical tests
  • Ensure the continuity of medical care in cases where patients have to be repatriated
  • Contribute to a database comprising epidemiological information, medical education content.

eRACE extensible Retrieval Annotation Caching Engine

WebRACEeRACE stands for Retrieval, Annotation and Caching Engine. It is an Internet-based, distributed server, developed with Java, Servlets, and Concordia , the Java-based Mobile Agent technology by Mitsubishi Electric Information Technology Center. eRACE collects information from heterogeneous Internet sources and protocols (Web, email, newsgroups) according to prespecified user profiles and interests. Information collected is annotated according to user profiles, encoded with a eRACE-XML grammar, and cached in eRACE's object cache. Within eRACE, an alerting server takes care of disseminating cached information to users, according to their profiles and priorities. eRACE supports both push and pull models of information provision. It is a generalization and extension of previous work on FIGI, the Financial Information Gathering Infrastructure. FIGI was an Internet-based system that helps investors collect, filter, combine and integrate portfolio-related information provided through various Internet services like World-Wide Web sites and Web-databases.
