Dr. Yevgeniy Kolokoltsev: An Open Distributed Supercomputer

A distributed computing system which can solve a complex numerical tasks can be realized only if two necessary conditions are satisfied: 1) the task does not require the transmission of large data streams between the distributed system components, and 2) the initial task can be discomposed and reduced to a number of a small independent tasks. In the GridUNAM project we have developed a new distributed framework based on the BOINC platform which is oriented especially for tasks satisfying the two criteria above. This framework simplifyes the execution of a code developed by 3rd party researchers on our system resources and contribute their own.

Place: Computer Science Department Seminar Room (412), 4th floor of IIMAS, Ciudad Universitaria.

Seminar will be followed by discussion. Coffee, cookies, and banana bread will be offered.
