DIstributed Computing Environments (DICE) Team
We are a group of computer scientists and IT experts from the Department of Computer Science AGH and ACC Cyfronet AGH. We are a curiosity- and research-driven team, specializing in large-scale distributed computing, HPC, Web and Cloud technologies. We develop new methods, tools and environments and we apply these solutions in e-Science, healthcare and industrial domains.

PL-Grid Virtual Laboratory

The virtual laboratory of PL-Grid is an environment for in-silico processing by Polish scientists, state authorities and crisis management teams. The laboratory is built on the top of the GridSpace technology. Its development builds on previous experience from EU projects – ViroLab and GREDIA; however, enriching the tool with new functionalities, specific to the PL-Grid users – namely, the Polish scientists.

The core idea of the PL-Grid virtual laboratory is exploratory programming. That is, allowing the researcher to conduct their experiments, in a dynamic way – a way more similar to the experimentation in the real laboratory. While most engines supporting in silico experiments force constructing a static workflow before the experiment starts, the PL-Grid virtual laboratory aims to allow the user to dynamically decide (on the base of the partial results) on the shape of the experiment workflow.

A running demo instance of the PL-Grid virtual laboratory is available for testing at To access the demo portal, a PL-Grid account is required. In order to obtain such an account, please go to PL-Grid Portal.
