TORUS services using HUPI platform

Walailak University, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand

February 5-9, 2018

The TORUS project (Toward an Open Resources Upon Services: Cloud of environmental data) aims to make operational techniques of cloud computing (CC) in the disciplinary field of environmental science and massive databases (Big Data) for future training and projects in partner countries. Schematically, the CC is the mutualisation of hardware and software resources via the Internet. It reduces the costs of processing and storage of information in a simplified environment accessible to all. This is an operational response to the problems of Big Data generalized today -by also present major issue in computer science. This simplification and cost reduction offer methodological possibilities not previously explored (eg, test several models, including in the area of Big Data for the reduction of data to compare their relevance). The strategy of the project which aims to organize thematic workshops and practical workshops applied to the environment is a real innovation that meets demand now clearly identified with our partners. CC, recent paradigm of computer science, requires a major investment since theoretical still not teaching before being mobilized by the practice on concrete projects. Projects that will have at heart to strengthen the links between education, research and environmental engineering. TORUS is responding to regional priorities set in the framework of ERASMUS + projects. In addition to the theoretical and practical expertise in place, the project will produce TORUS the specifications for future Master level training with our partners as well as two reference books (scientific pedagogically) and deliver practical solutions CC deployed three levels fundamental CC in partner countries with computer hardware approached by the project.


TORUS is coordinated by the University of Toulouse 2 Jean Jaures (UT2J) and it consists of several partners from Europe and Southeast Asia (SEA): the International School of Information Processing Sciences Pau Campus (EISTI, France), University of Ferrara (Italy), University Brussels Vrije (Belgium), Vietnam National University in Hanoi and the Nong Lam University of Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam), Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in Pathumthani and Walailak University in Nakhon Si Thamarat (Thailand). Project information can be found at


TORUS network consists of both environmental science and cloud computing experts that will work together on the thematic application of cloud computing. Several researchers from UNIFE/AIT, UT2J, VUB, VNU and EISTI specifically work on the air pollution related research hence this field is recognized as one of the key contemporary environmental issue in the project.  The seven (7th) workshop organized at WU Nakhon Si Thammarat-Thailand specifically covers the following thematic themes: 1) cloud computing application for air quality research, 2) semantic integration of remote sensing metadata, 3) image segmentation/SWAT/social data, 4) remote sensing on the cloud and geodatabase infrastructure, and 5) cloud computing.
