Systems Applications DEXA2005
Grid and Peer-to-Peer
Computing Impacts on Large Scale Heterogeneous Distributed Database
August 22 - 26, 2005 in Copenhagen,
Workshop proceedings to be published by IEEE Computer
New large scale distributed applications are emerging as a results
of fast development of the Internet network. These applications, which
access to heterogeneous and distributed data sources, require the
design, and the development of large scale distributed systems. These
systems manage, in effective and secure way, the computer resources and
the data. In such a context, the heterogeneity (data structure, data
sources, software and hardware), the decentralization, the location,
the access and the availability of the resources (i.e. programs, CPU,
memory, network bandwidth, data) present
a real challenge to the development of large distributed systems.
The research topics such as the Grid and Peer-to-Peer computing are
relatively recent. The main objective is to harness Internet connected
at very large scale. Recent advances in these area involve the design
and development of new methods and techniques which offer users a
effective and secured access to resources Of large scale heterogeneous
distributed systems. Decentralization, self-organization and symmetric
communication characterize the Peer-to-Peer systems. The implementation
of these characteristics can be realized by using mobile computing
models (i.e. mobility of software and data).
The main objective of this workshop is to emphasize and to discuss
some the current and future impacts of Grid and Peer-to-Peer Computing
on large scale heterogeneous distributed database systems.
