DSD Staff to Figure Prominently at HPDC 14

May 1, 2005

When the Fourteenth IEEE International Symposium on High-Performance Distributed Computing convenes in July, Berkeley Lab’s Distributed Systems Department (DSD) will have a strong presence.

Not only are two of the papers and one of the posters from LBNL, but Deb Agarwal and Mary Thompson are also members of the program committee. Co-sponsored by IEEE and ACM, HPDC-14 will be held July 24-27 in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

The 14th annual meeting of the High Performance Distributed Computing conference series provides a forum for presenting the latest research findings on the design and use of parallel and distributed systems for high end computing, collaboration, data analysis and other innovative applications.

Here is a look at the program components contributed by DSD staff: “State and Events for Web Services: A Comparison of Five WS-Resource Framework and WS-Notification Implementations,” paper by Marty Humphrey, Glenn Wasson, Keith Jackson, Joshua Boverhof, Matt Rodriguez. “Simplifying FusionGrid Security,” paper by Justin Burruss, Thomas Fredian and Mary Thompson.

“Techniques for Tuning Workflows in Cluster Environments,” poster by Brian Tierney and Daniel Gunter.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) Computing Sciences organization provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing the Department of Energy's research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world and our universe.

ESnet, the Energy Sciences Network, provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at 40 DOE research sites to each other and to experimental facilities and supercomputing centers around the country. The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) powers the discoveries of 6,000 scientists at national laboratories and universities, including those at Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division (CRD). CRD conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation. NERSC and ESnet are DOE Office of Science User Facilities.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab's scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the DOE’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit science.energy.gov.
