Event Overview | Session Overview | Speakers
Infosys is a Platinum Sponsor of HiPC 2007 - the 14th Annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing. Anirban Chakrabarti and Shubhashis Sengupta of Infosys will co-chair a workshop on grid and utility computing.
Until recently, application developers could assume a target environment that was homogeneous, reliable, secure, and centrally managed. However, with the advent of collaborative computing and data sharing, new modes of interaction have evolved, resulting in the need for and use of distributed resources for large-scale scientific research. Work within this community has led to the development of grid technologies that are being successfully adopted for scientific and enterprise computing. In grid computing, geographically distributed heterogeneous resources are virtualized as a unified whole.
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished papers for the workshop on grid and utility computing. Read more about the workshop and the procedure for paper submission.
