Dr Sandra Gesing returns to join the DIR group

We are delighted to welcome Sandra back, some of you may remember her previous visits from the University of Tübingen, where she recently defended her PhD. We all congratulate her on that well deserved success. Her email address remains, sandra.gesing@uni-tuebingen.de. She can be found in room IF5.22. We will be working together on a graphical editor for DISPEL that also forms a proof-of-concept for a really versatile web-based generic workflow editor.

NeSC Research Seminar Series
Speaker: 
Drs Andre Luckow and Shantenu Jha from Rutgers University

This will be a talk in two parts: In the first part, we will motivate via a series of applications the concept of a scalable and general-purpose Pilot-Job. We will discuss the P* Model of Pilot-Jobs and present BigJob a SAGA-based Pilot-Job. In the second part of the talk, we focus on extension of the Pilot-Job concept to the challenge of "Big Data". Science that involves and depends upon large amounts of data, also requires overcoming various challenges, including managing large-scale data distribution and co-placement/scheduling with computing resources.
