RESURGENCE = RESearch sURGe ENabled by CyberinfrastructurE

Evolving technologies, as exemplified by computational grids and web services, have made it possible to solve new scientific problems that would not have been feasible previously. In order to make such advances available to the community in general and to be able to solve new problems, not necessarily from the same discipline, it is imperative to build tools that provide a common user interface so that application programmers and users do not have to be concerned with the particulars of grid computing, web services and their underlying code, computational platforms, or data file formats. The purpose of the Resurgence project is to provide a general workflow infrastructure for computational chemistry that allows high-throughput calculations distributed on a computational grid.

The Resurgence project is based on the Kepler system for scientific workflows developed by an interdisciplinary cross-project collaboration, which itself is based on the Ptolemy II system for heterogeneous, concurrent modeling and design developed at the University of California, Berkeley. The Resurgence project is a joint collaboration between the Baldridge Group at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, University of Zurich, Switzerland, and the San Diego Supercomputer Center, University of California, San Diego, USA.
