The GridLab project consists of 12 core workpackages, with additional workpackages covering exploitation, dissemination and project management.

As well as the information linked to from these pages, individual mailing lists are run for each workpackage, and internal workpackage information can be found on our protected pages.

TB Technical Board (TB) The Technical Board is responsible for the general architecture of the GridLab project and has to coordinate and ensure the interoperability between the individual Work Packages.
WP1 Grid Application Toolkit (GAT) The objectives of this workpackage are to design and build a Grid Application Toolkit (GAT) from the services developed in other GridLab workpackages. The GAT is a set of coordinated, generic and flexible APIs for accessing Grid services from e.g. generic application codes, portals, data managements systems, together with working implementations provided by the tools developed in the Grid Lab project (See the figure below). The GAT is designed in a modular plug-and-play manner, such that tools developed anywhere which conform to the GAT API will be inter-opera

WP2 Cactus Grid Application Toolkit (CGAT) The Cactus Grid Application Toolkit will provide an extended GAT interface for Cactus (http://www.cactuscode.org), a very general toolkit framework supporting different Grid applications, from astrophysics to chemical engineering. Cactus is one of the primary application drivers for the GAT.

WP3 Work-Flow Application Toolkit (TGAT) The Work-Flow Application Toolkit, based on the Triana package developed originally for gravitational wave (GW) data analysis, will provide a second example application toolkit for GridLab. GW data analysis has a large community of users that will benefit significantly from the developments of this WP. However, the class of applications covered by TGAT is much larger than GW data analysis. Complimenting the CGAT, which is aimed primarily at supporting large scale simulation applications, the TGAT will be developed to exploit Grids for many different work-flow applications, through extensions to the Triana data-flow programming environment.

WP5 Testbed Management One of the most challenging tasks of the Grid research is the establishment of actual prototype or even production Grids, requiring creation and maintenance of both the technological and political infrastructure. This WP takes care of all the activities necessary for deploying and running a large-scale Grid testbed, providing a prototype of future production Grids. The GridLab testbed is available to all other work packages for development, testing, evaluation, and deployment of new components. While the core resources of the testbed are provided by GridLab partners, we actively encourage other EU and US sites and testbeds to join and expand the GridLab testbed and to enable inter-grid experiments. Results of testbed experiences are published in series of documents disseminated through the Global Grid and other forums.

WP6 Security This work package aims at building solid and consistent testbed security management tools and policies, as well as inter-testbed interoperability security policies. The work package will provide various security mechanisms that will fulfill Grid security requirements. The following issues will be addressed by the WP: Grid requirements for authentication, for communication protection, authorization. Grid security solutions that will be provided by the WP will be based on existing standards wherever possible.

WP7 Adaptive Grid Components The goal of this work package is to provide adaptive components to other modules of the grid application toolkit (GAT). Common to these adaptive components is that they take (possibly dynamic) information about Grid resources (network status, CPU availability, memory footprint, etc.) as input to performance-prediction models and implement adaptive strategies that let applications use the given resources more efficiently. For grid-aware applications, this general mechanism is used for numerous purposes like data access, task scheduling, and dynamic application reconfiguration. Although use-case specific APIs and event models are necessary, the basic techniques are similar.
