In the business world, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) has recently gained popularity as a new approach to integrate business applications. In a similar way, scientific workflows can accomplish the automation of large-scale e-Science applications. However, the use of workflows in scientific environments differs from that in business environments.(More)
We present an on-line database of all-atom force-field parameters and molecular properties of compounds with antimicrobial activity (mostly antibiotics and some beta-lactamase inhibitors). For each compound, we provide the General Amber Force Field parameters for the major species at physiological pH, together with an analysis of properties of interest as(More)
High performance computing infrastructures, such as the Grill, have become available to several scientific communities but their use is often limited due to the high level of technical detail needed tor the successful deployment of applications. The next step tor supporting e-scientists is to provide them with an e-science environment that comprises high(More)
Scientific workflows may be deployed on heterogeneous distributed environments, including Grid resources whose access is not straightforward when it is non compliant with the specific Grid middleware. This paper addresses this complexity and investigates the feasibility of a service oriented approach that takes advantage of the standardized resource access(More)
Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) aim at detecting malicious or unauthorized activities targeting a network and its resources. Usually engineered as self-contained applications, current IDSs are limited in protecting collaborative computing environments, like grids, whose security amplifies the concerns about intrusions and motivates advanced organizing(More)
