Making Grids Work includes selected articles from the CoreGRID Workshop on Grid Programming Models, Grid and P2P Systems Architecture, Grid Systems, Tools and Environments held at the Institute of Computer Science, Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas in Crete, Greece, June 2007. This workshop brought together representatives of the academic and industrial communities performing Grid research in Europe. Organized within the context of the CoreGRID Network of Excellence, this workshop provided a forum for the presentation and exchange of views on the latest developments in Grid Technology research. This volume is the 7th in the series of CoreGRID books.
Making Grids Work is designed for a professional audience, composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. This volume is also suitable for graduate-level students in computer science.
Covers all aspects of Grid Computing, mainly focusing on Peer-to-Peer Techniques for Grids
CoreGRID brings together a critical mass of well-established researchers from forty-two institutions active in the fields of distributed systems and middleware, programming models, algorithms, tools and environments
