Grid Problem Solving Environments

Written by Super User. Posted in Research

Grid systems, which are a result of natural evolution of distributed computer systems, enable sharing of geographically-distributed computer resources. This new technology addresses a new kind of a user - virtual organizations which may be spread over many real institutions. The research team from the Institute of Computer Science AGH (Marian Bubak, Włodzimierz Funika, Bartosz Baliś, Maciej Malawski, Katarzyna Rycerz, Marcin Smętek) and ACC CYFRONET AGH (Tomasz Gubała, Piotr Nowakowski, Marcin Radecki, Tomasz Szepieniec) has contributed to this area by developing modeling methods and problem solving environments as well as selected services/components for the underlying middleware. Our recent achievements include:

The above research was conducted in collaboration with Universiteit van Amsterdam (Prof. Peter M.A. Sloot), Universitaet Wien (Prof. Peter Brezany), Universitaet Siegen (Prof. Roland Wismueller), Emory University in Atlanta (Prof. Vaidy Sunderam), Universitaet Linz (Prof. Dieter Kranzlmueller), CERN (Dr. Fabrizio Gagliardi), Universitaet Innsbruck (Prof. Thomas Fahringer) and with a number of EU IST projects: CrossGrid, EGEE, K-WfGrid, CoreGRID) as well as projects funded by Polish grants (KBN).

Our main challenge is the elaboration of methods and tools for the development of collaborative large-scale scientific applications running in service-oriented, component, and peer-to-peer Grid systems, based on semantic discovery of services and application composition.
