Enabling collaborative science

Enabling Collaborative Science

  • Enable distributed communities to pursue common goals

    • Scientific research

    • Engineering design

    • Artistic creation

    • Education

  • Focusing on the enabling mechanisms required for collaboration

    • Resource sharing as a fundamental concept


Elements of grid computing

Elements of Grid Computing

  • Resource sharing

    • Computers, storage, sensors, networks

    • Sharing is always conditional, based on issues of trust, policy, negotiation, payment, etc.

  • Coordinated problem solving

    • Beyond client-server: distributed data analysis, computation, collaboration, etc.

  • Dynamic, multi-institutional virtual organizations

    • Community overlays on classic org structures

    • Large or small, static or dynamic
