Masterclass Jon Weissman

The Dynamic Grid

Download presentation: [ PDF | Open Document Format ]

Today, the vast majority of deployed Grid systems are highly centralized and static. Significant problems (and opportunities) arise from the strong degree of centralization in Grid systems today: they are difficult to manage, they are prone to failure, and they are rigid and inflexible in structure. In this master course, we present a different vision of Grid computing that is more decentralized and adaptive. This master course will explore a set of research topics under the umbrella of adaptive, decentralized, Grids: decentralized Grid overlays, adaptive resource management for reliability, and techniques and metrics to support robust Grid applications in this environment. This research is being carried out in the RIDGE project at the University of Minnesota.

This course is designed for researchers and Grid practitioners that wish to learn about the research challenges and opportunities in this area, and some potential solutions.

Gridforum Nederland en Internet Society organiseren samen op 4 december a.s. een masterclass van de Amerikaanse gridexpert Jon Weissman. Toegangsprijs voor de masterclass is EUR 100, leden van en kunnen zich gratis inschrijven. (word lid!). De masterclass word gehouden op van 13.30 uur tot 17.00 uur in het gebouw van het CWI, Kruislaan 413, Amsterdam (Turingzaal, Z 011) in Amsterdam (routebeschrijving). Er is zoals altijd een beperkt aantal gratis plaatsen beschikbaar voor AIO's en studenten. Na afloop is er een borrel om nog even na te praten met de spreker en andere deelnemers. De masterclass wordt in het Engels gehouden.

About the speaker

Jon WeissmanJon B. Weissman is a leading researcher in the area of Grid computing. His involvement dates back to the influential Legion project at the University of Virginia during his Ph.D. He is currently an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Minnesota where he leads the Distributed Computing Systems Group, and is a visitor at the National E-Science Center (NeSC) in Edinburgh. His current research interests are in Grid computing, distributed systems, high performance computing, resource management, reliability, and e-science applications. He works primarily at the boundary between applications and systems. He received his B.S. degree from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1984, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Virginia in 1989 and 1995, respectively, all in computer science. He is a senior member of the IEEE and has been appointed an Honorary Fellow of the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Edinburgh.
