This paper describes the architecture of the first implementation of the In-VIGO grid-computing system. The architecture is designed to support computational tools for engineering and science research In Virtual Information Grid Organizations (as opposed to in vivo or in vitro experimental research). A novel aspect of In-VIGO is the extensive use of(More)
—This paper introduced cmpSCTP, a transport layer solution for concurrent multi-path transfer that modifies the standard Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP). The cmpSCTP aims at exploiting SCTP's multi-homing capability by selecting several best paths among multiple available network interfaces to improve data transfer rate to the same multi-homed(More)
Energy conservation is a major concern in cloud computing systems because it can bring several important benefits such as reducing operating costs, increasing system reliability, and prompting environmental protection. Meanwhile, power-aware scheduling approach is a promising way to achieve that goal. At the same time, many real-time applications, e.g.,(More)
To investigate the health impacts of crystalline silica mixed dust and other potential occupational hazards on workers in ceramic factories, a cohort study of 4851 workers registered in the employment records in 3 ceramic factories in Jingdezhen city of China between 1972 and 1974 was identified. The cohort mortality was traced throughout 2003 with an(More)
