Workshops & Special Sessions

Advances in High-Performance E-Science Middleware and Applications


  • Robert van Engelen, Florida State University, USA
  • Madhu Govindaraju, SUNY Binghamton, USA
  • Massimo Cafaro, University of Salento, Italy


The Workshop on Advances in High-Performance E-Science Middleware and Applications is an international forum which brings together researchers and practitioners working on different high-performance aspects of web/grid services, middleware and technologies that enable e-science applications. The enabling middleware technologies include tools to assemble together different resources such as parallel supercomputers, data archives, high-speed storage systems, advanced visualization devices and scientific instruments using high speed networks connecting geographically distributed devices and organizations. Many recent international efforts are actively fostering the development of e-science technologies and solutions. The Workshop will allow exchanging ideas and results related to on-going e-science computing research, focusing on high-performance aspects of e-science middleware and applications.
