HUBbub 2011 Breakout Sessions (concurrent sessions)

#1 Using HUBzero to Support Scientific Projects

Tuesday 4/5/11, 2:30 - 5:30pm and Wednesday 4/6/11, 1:30 - 4:30pm

Session Chair: William K. Barnett

HUBzero supports more than 25 hubs in a wide range of disciplines including nanotechnology, cancer care, bio-fuels, battery technology for electric vehicles, earthquake engineering, volcanic activity, pharmaceutical engineering, microelectromechanical systems, environmental modeling, and heat transfer applications, to name a few. This tutorial will explore some of those use cases and illustrate the different collaboration models that HUBzero supports.

Audience: Anyone involved in scientific research
Prerequisites: None
Goal: Attendees will learn how HUBzero has been used to support research and education

#2 Configuring and Managing Your Hub

Tuesday 4/5/11, 2:30 - 5:30pm and Wednesday 4/6/11, 1:30 - 4:30pm

Leaders: Sam Wilson and Nikki Huang

Congratulations! Your HUBzero software is installed. Now what? Each new hub requires some configuration and customization, and once the hub is online and open to users, it requires some care and feeding. For example, you may configure your hub so that new content must be approved before it appears on the site. This tutorial will show you how to configure such options, and how to approve content, manage the calendar, respond to support tickets, handle abuse reports, and so forth.

This tutorial will address the following topics:

Audience: Faculty, researchers, grad students, and administrative assistants helping to manage a hub
Prerequisites: Basic familiarity with web sites
Goal: Attendees will learn how to customize a hub and manage its content

#3 Creating and Deploying Scientific Tools

Tuesday 4/5/11, 2:30 - 5:30pm and Wednesday 4/6/11, 1:30 - 4:30pm

Leader: Michael McLennan

Perhaps the most interesting feature of HUBzero is the way it handles simulation and modeling programs, or "tools." A little like, HUBzero allows researchers to work collaboratively on the source code of their simulation programs and share those programs with the community. But instead of sharing only by offering source code bundles to download, HUBzero also offers live published programs available for use instantly and entirely within an ordinary web browser. The simulation engines run start to finish on computational resources selected for each hub. Computationally demanding runs can be dispatched to remote computing resources in a way that is completely transparent to users. Tools are driven by friendly graphical user interfaces (GUIs) that enable end-to-end operation of the simulation process encompassing set-up, execution, and data visualization.

This tutorial will demonstrate how to do software development in the "workspace" environment within each hub, how to use the Rappture Toolkit to create interactive interfaces for scientific tools, and how to deploy the resulting tools in the hub environment. Specifically, it will address the following topics:

Audience: Software developers creating simulation/modeling tools for the hub environment
Prerequisites: Familiarity with a programming language. Examples will be presented in C, Fortran, Python, and MATLAB.
Goal: Attendees will learn how to create and deploy simulation tools in the hub enviroment

#4 Advanced Topics

Wednesday 4/6/11, 1:30 - 4:30pm

Leaders: John Rosheck, Steve Snyder, Sam Wilson

Interested in installing a new hub or modifying the code for your existing hub? This session will dive in deeper and give you a chance to ask tough questions. Specifically, this tutorial will address the following advanced topics:

Audience: Web developers and system administrators
Prerequisites: Familiarity with PHP for web development. Familiarity with Linux and system installation.
Goal: Attendees will learn advanced web development concepts, system installation, and have a chance to ask questions
