Resource management and scheduling of distributed, data-driven applications in a Grid environment are challenging problems. Although significant results were achieved in the past few years, the development and the proper deployment of generic, reliable, standard components present issues that still need to be completely solved. Interested domains include(More)

In the last couple of years, many e-Science infrastructures have begun to offer production services to eScientists with an increasing number of applications that require access to different kinds of computational resources. Within Europe two rather different multi-national e-Science infrastructures evolved over time namely Distributed European(More)
In a distributed grid environment with ambitious service demands the job submission and management interfaces provide functionality of major importance. Emerging e-science and grid infrastructures such as EGEE and DEISA rely on highly available services that are capable of managing scientific jobs. It is the adoption of emerging open standard interfaces(More)
This paper discusses how the Virtual Organisation (VO) concept can be used for managing dynamic security associations in collaborative Grid applications and for complex resource provisioning. The paper contains both research part and discusses further development of the popular VO management software VO Membership Service (VOMS). The paper provides an(More)
In recent years, the Virtual Organization Membership Service (VOMS) emerged within Grid infrastructures providing dynamic, fine-grained, access control needed to enable resource sharing across Virtual Organization (VOs). VOMS allows to manage authorization information in a VO scope to enforce agreements established between VOs and resource owners. VOMS is(More)
One of the most important challenges in production grids is to achieve interoperation across several heterogeneous grid middleware platforms: escience applications need a coordinated resource sharing among dynamic collections of individuals/institutions, independently from whatever middleware the resources are running. For this reason, there is a great(More)
Contemporary Grids are characterized by a middleware that provides the necessary virtualization of computation and data resources for the shared working environment of the Grid. In a large-scale view, different middleware technologies and implementations have to coexist. The SOA approach provides the needed architectural backbone for interoperable(More)
A polarization lidar operating at 532 nm was converted into an automatic, polarimetric lidar capable of measuring the entire Stokes vector of backscattered light and its derived quantities. Among these quantities, circular and linear depolarizations were studied as tools for investigating the presence of anisotropic scattering media. Isotropic scatterers(More)
The Grid paradigm for accessing heterogeneous distributed resources proved to be extremely effective, as many organizations are relying on Grid middlewares for their computational needs. Many different middlewares exist, the result being a proliferation of self-contained, non interoperable “Grid islands”. This means that different Grids, based on different(More)
