  The GRIDCC* is a three-year project funded by the European Commission. Its goal is integrating instruments and sensors with the traditional Grid resources. The GRIDCC middleware is being designed bearing in mind use cases from a very diverse set of applications, and as the result, the GRIDCC architecture provides access to the instruments in as generic a way as possible. GRIDCC is also developing an adaptable user interface and a mechanism for executing complex workflows in order to increase both the usability and the usefulness of the system. The new middleware is incorporated into significant applications that will allow the software validation in terms both of functionality and quality of service. The pilot application this paper focuses on is applying GRIDCC to support Remote Operations of the ELETTRA synchrotron radiation facility. We describe the results of implementing via GRIDCC complex workflows involved in the both routine operations and troubleshooting scenarios. In particular, the implementation of an orbit correction feedback shows the level of integration of instruments and traditional Grid resources which can be reached using the GRIDCC middleware.

WPPB10 Virtually There: The Control Room of the Future 418

  Imagine the ILC is up and running. Electrons and positrons collide happily, and scientists are taking data. Suddenly there's a problem with one of the laser wires. All experts are at a meeting on a different continent, but the problem needs to be fixed immediately. Difficult? Not when there's a Global Accelerator Network Multipurpose Virtual Lab (GANMVL) in place. High-speed, high-resolution cameras would allow the faraway experts to look at the fault, a web-based portal would let them access the controls and tools of the system with a simple "single-sign-on" procedure. However, the virtual lab is not just about remote operation. In principle it is already possible to run a control room remotely. This system is radically different in that it takes into account the human aspect of teamwork around the world. The implications of a working virtual control room are enormous. It might revolutionise virtual collaboration in completely different areas. The paper presents the GANMVL tool and the results of the evaluation of the Virtual Lab in production environment and real operations.
