Introduction to the PL-Grid e-infrastructure and the QosCosGrid services


The Polish Grid Infrastructure (NGI) has been built within the PL-Grid project (2009 – 2012) to provide the Polish scientific community with an IT platform based on computer clusters, enabling research in various domains of e-Science. This tutorial aims to show:

  • Resources and applications available in the infrastructure,
  • How to register in PL-Grid (anyone who is registered in  Ludzie nauki database can apply for a PL-Grid account during the training),
  • End-user tools: QCG-Icon,  QCG-Simple and  InSilicoLab,
  • How to run simulations efficiently.

The PL-Grid infrastructure is dedicated to the polish science community. However any chemist not directly associated with polish research institution, but suffering from lack of computing resources may apply for a membership in the Gaussian Virtual Organization.
