Scope and Interests:
Grid computing research focuses on building a large-scale computing infrastructure by linking computing facilities at many distributed locations. By analogy with the electric power Grids, such systems are known as computational Grids. Significant effort has been spent in the design and implementation of middleware software for enabling computational Grids. These software packages have been successfully deployed and it is now possible to build clusters beyond the boundaries of a single local area network. However, the challenging problem of dynamically allocating resources in response to application requests for computational services remains unsolved. Adaptive middleware is software that resides between the application and the computer operating system and enables an application to adapt to changing availability of computing and networking resources.
The purpose of this workshop is to provide an open forum for researchers from hardware and software areas to present, discuss, and exchange research-related ideas, results, and experiences in the area of adaptive middleware for computational Grids.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
• Hardware/software co-designs
