Abstract: The 12th Heterogeneous Computing Workshop (HCW 2003) will be held in Nice, France, on April 22, 2003. Heterogeneous computing systems are those with a range of diverse computing resources that can be local to one another or geographically distributed. The opportunity and need for heterogeneous computing systems to effectively utilize these resources in new, novel ways is growing concomitantly. This has given rise, for instance, to the notions of grid computing and peer-to-peer computing.

Field of Science: e-Science

URL: http://www.cs.queensu.ca/home/skill/datacentric.html

Abstract: The volume of data to be processed in the world quadruples every 18 months, when compared to the fact that available performance per processor only doubles we have the implication that the traditional view of data moving to processors is becoming increasingly inappropriate. Also, data is becoming a resource with value and there are restrictions in transporting it through different countries. The Datacentric Grid Project is built on these premises.
