Today scientists and engineers are commonly faced with the challenge of modelling, predicting and controlling multiscale systems which cross scientific disciplines and where several processes acting at different scales coexist and interact. Such multidisciplinary multiscale models, when simulated in three dimensions, require large scale or even extreme scale computing capabilities. Progress in science and technology is limited by our ability to solve efficiently such problems on available distributed computing infrastructures. The MAPPER project will respond to this critical need by developing computational strategies, software and services for distributed multiscale simulations across disciplines, exploiting existing and evolving European e-Infrastructure. Driven by seven challenging applications from five representative scientific domains (fusion, clinical decision making, systems biology, nano science, engineering), MAPPER will deploy a computational science environment for distributed multiscale computing on and across European e-infrastructures. By taking advantage of existing software and services, as delivered by EU and national projects, MAPPER will result in high quality components for today's e-Infrastructures. We will advance the state-of-the-art in high performance computing on European e-Infrastructures by enabling distributed execution of multiscale models. We will develop tools, software and services that allow two modes (loosely - and tightly coupled) of multiscale computing, in a user friendly and transparent way. We will integrate our applications into the MAPPER environment, and we will demonstrate their enhanced capabilities by answering one challenging scientific question related to each application. We plan to collaborate with other projects on adaptation of successful MAPPER methodologies, and will work with resource providers to develop policies facilitating the new multiscale computing paradigms.

MAPPER at EGI Community Forum 2012
The MAPPER project will be present at the first EGI (European Grid Infrastructure) Community Forum that will take place at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) in Garching near Munich, Germany, between 26-30 March 2012.
The EGI Community Forum will highlight the services, technologies and tools available to scientific communities to better support their research. It will also showcase the role that EGI plays in enabling innovation across the European research area.
For more information on the conference venue and registration fees, please check the EGI Community Forum website: http://cf2012.egi.eu/
Below is the expected events, which MAPPER will be involved during the EGI Community Forum 2012:
1. MAPPER will have a booth with live demos about distributed multiscale computing
2. MAPPER will give a lecture at PRACE Workshop in "distributed multiscale computing, the MAPPER project"
3. MAPPER will have a presentation at the EGI Operations Management Board meeting
4. MAPPER will give a short presentation joint with SHIWA EGI session
