This document describes the initial design of the SEE-GRID software in the Austrian Grid. SEE-GRID is based on the SEE++ software for the biomechanical simulation of the human eye. SEE++ was developed in the SEE-KID project by Upper Austrian Research and the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences; it consists of a client component for user interaction and of a server component that runs various computations (currently “Hess Diagram Calculation” and “Pathology Fitting”, in the future also “Surgery Simulation”). The goal of SEE-GRID is to adapt and to extend SEE++ in several steps to make use of the grid: 1. The simulation component is transformed to a grid service. 2. “Hess Diagram Calculation” is parallelized and distributed over multiple grid nodes. 3. “Pathology Fitting” is parallelized and distributed over multiple grid nodes. 4. A grid database of “gaze patterns” is established with patterns derived from measurements and calculations. For querying this database for wanted patterns, many instances of the core problem of “pathology fitting” have to be performed; we will parallelize these queries and distribute them over multiple grid nodes. Based on above results, SEE++/SEE-GRID may be improved in order to provide a future “surgery simulation” component that gives the doctor recommendations for how to perform a surgery that corrects a particular impaired eye.
