Title: Going back to our roots : a research infrastructure

Robert (Bob) J. Aiken


Much of the advanced network based technologies we see today in grids, networks, and distributed systems has its roots in the research infrastructure known as the ARPANET and its subsequent derivations in the NSFNET and other research networks which concurrently supported network and systems research. The growing inter-dependence between the network and leading edge applications, middleware, and grids dictates the need for us to go back to our roots and again build and support a research infrastructure that can concurrently support not only network and distributed systems research, but also support R&E applications, especially those advanced applications requiring experimental and research focused network capabilities. The National Lambda Rail is an example of this new breed of network. This session draws heavily on the material from the ACM article “Network and Computing Research Infrastructure: The Need to go Back to the Future” by Aiken, Boroumand, Wolff , Communications of ACM, January ,2004, Volume 47, Number 1, pps 93-98



This presentation is part of session "Research Infrastructure" which starts at Thursday, June 10 @ 09:00
