SUMMARY The first Provenance Challenge was set up in order to provide a forum for the community to understand the capabilities of different provenance systems and the expressiveness of their provenance representations. To this end, a Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging workflow was defined, which participants had to either simulate or run in order to(More)
Many-task computing aims to bridge the gap between two computing paradigms, high throughput computing and high performance computing. Many-task computing denotes high-performance computations comprising multiple distinct activities, coupled via file system operations. The aggregate number of tasks, quantity of computing, and volumes of data may be extremely(More)
wilde at mcs dot anl dot gov The kickstart executable is a lightweight program that is distributed as part of the GriPhyN Virtual Data System. It sits in between the remote scheduler and the executable, gathering additional information about the executable run-time behavior, including, but not limited to, the exit status of jobs and information to ease grid(More)
In high-energy physics, terabyte and soon petabyte-scale data collections are emerging as critical community resources. A new class of " Data Grid " infrastructure is required to support distributed access to and analysis of these datasets by potentially thousands of users. Data Grid technology is being deployed in numerous experiments through(More)
Naturally occurring proteins with similar sequences generally posses similar structures and often perform similar functions. Consequently, multiple sequence alignments are used to discern homologous structures for application in template-based modeling and in methods where structures are assembled using homologous fragments. While these homology-based(More)

(1) Legislative update. Clarified the comment by the Governor regarding merit. It was stated at the town hall meeting of last week that merit was referring to only step increases for state employees. However, this was clarified since the town hall. The Governor was in fact referring to actual merit increases for all. The problem is that the merit is likely(More)
In grid environments, the deployment and management of application software presents a major practical challenge for end users. Performing these tasks manually is error-prone and not scalable to large grids. In this work, we propose an automation tool, ADEM, for grid application software deployment and management, and demonstrate and evaluate the tool on(More)
Topics • Compute Resource Management in large scale clusters, large Grids, and Supercomputers ◊ Scheduling ◊ Job execution frameworks ◊ Local resource manager extensions ◊ Performance evaluation of resource managers in use on large scale systems ◊ Challenges in running many-task workloads on HPC systems • Data Management in large scale Grid and(More)
Overview With the advances in e-Sciences and the growing complexity of scientific analyses, more and more scientists and researchers are relying on workflow systems for process coordination, derivation automation, provenance tracking, and bookkeeping. Workflows are not a new concept and have been around for decades [1][3][6][7][2]. In the scientific(More)
Calico, a C-based object-oriented language supported by an integrated software development environment, is described. Calico features strict encapsulation, dynamic binding, fast garbage collection, and interoperability with C. It provides a simple, uniformly applied object model, a syntax easily mastered by C programmers, a new multiple inheritance model,(More)
