Adaptive Message Packing for Group Communication Systems
We apply message packing, a technique originally proposed by Friedman and Van Renesse in 1997 for improving the performance of group communication, to modern hardware and group communication toolkits. Expand
A Web-based Tool for Collaborative Access to Scientific Instruments in Cyberinfrastructures
We present a Web-based groupware tool that is being developed in the context of the GRIDCC European project, whose purpose is to extend current cyberinfrastructures to enable shared access to and control of distributed instrumentation. Expand
Towards Deployment of the Remote Instrumentation e-Infrastructure (in the Frame of the DORII Project)
The Deployment of Remote Instrumentation Infrastructure (DORII) project aims at setting up an advanced Grid-based e-Infrastructure specifically oriented to the support of remote instrumentation devices on Grid extending the level of scientific instruments' exploitation. Expand
FERMI@Elettra is a new 4 th -generation light source based on a seeded Free Electron Laser (FEL) presently under commissioning in Trieste, Italy. It is the first seeded FEL ever designed to produceExpand
A Common Software Framework for FEL Data Acquisition and Experiment Management at FERMI
This paper describes the architecture behind all the experiments performed so far; the combination of the EXECUTER script engine with a specialized data acquisition device (FERMIDAQ) based on TANGO. Expand
Duodenal obstruction from chronic pancreatitis.
The fibrosclerosing process of the pancreas in the chronic pancreatitis may constrict not only the pancreatic duct but also the bile duct, splenoportal venous system and duodenum. In ourExpand
EIS: the scattering beamline at FERMI.
The Elastic and Inelastic Scattering (EIS) beamline at the free-electron laser FERMI is presented. It consists of two separate end-stations: EIS-TIMEX, dedicated to ultrafast time-resolved studies ofExpand
Extreme ultraviolet resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) at a seeded free-electron laser
In the past few years, we have been witnessing an increased interest for studying materials properties under non-equilibrium conditions. Several well established spectroscopies for experiments in theExpand
Integrating Instruments in the Grid for On-line and Off-line Processing in a Synchrotron Radiation Facility
We apply the DORII infrastructure on remote operations and on-line & off-line processing in a synchrotron radiation facility. Expand
A replication framework for program‐to‐program interaction across unreliable networks and its implementation in a servlet container
We propose a service replication framework for unreliable networks. The service exhibits the same consistency guarantees about the order of execution of operation requests as its non‐replicatedExpand
