The increasing volume of data describing human disease processes and the growing complexity of understanding, managing, and sharing such data presents a huge challenge for clinicians and medical researchers. This paper presents the @neurIST system, which provides an infrastructure for biomedical research while aiding clinical care, by bringing together(More)
Across a wide variety of fields, huge datasets are being collected and accumulated at a dramat-ical pace. The datasets addressed by individual applications are very often heterogeneous and geographically distributed, and are used for collaboration by the communities of users, which are often large and also geographically distributed. There are major(More)
Earth and life sciences are at the forefront to successfully include computational simulations and modeling. Medical applications are often mentioned as the killer applications for the Grid. The complex methodology and models of Traditional Chinese Medicine offer different approaches to diagnose and treat a persons health condition than typical Western(More)
Across a wide variety of fields, huge datasets are being collected and accumulated at a dramatical pace. The datasets addressed by individual applications are very often heterogeneous and geographically distributed. An important factor of the strength of a modern enterprise is its capability to effectively store and process information. As a legacy of the(More)

Knowledge discovery in data sources available on Computational Grids is a challenging research and development issue. Several Grid research activities addressing some facets of this process have already been reported. The GridMiner project (www.gridminer.org) at the University of Vienna aims, as the first Grid research effort, to cover all aspects of the(More)
—Within the Austrian Grid project phase 2, three different groups, each allocated to a different workpackage, join their efforts to implement a grid infrastructure for the european research project " Breath Gas Analysis for molecular oriented diseases ". This position paper provides background on the task and the resulting requirements, a presentation on(More)
— The trend in Grid computing towards more data intensive applications, accessing more and more relational databases and requiring advanced integration of secondhand and publicly available data sources, is still upstanding. Rich metadata information about these data sources plays a vital role for efficient distributed data management. There is a lack of(More)
— Chinese and Western medicine s have a different understanding and approach to life, health, and illness-joining their complementary work and support them by an advanced information technology could result in an improved health system. The Non-Invasive Blood Glucose Measurement (NIGM) Service is a grid based implementation of a novel non-invasive method(More)
