We discuss design issues related to the transformation of a mature Agent-Based Model (ABM) for computational epidemiology into a "grid-aware" version. EpiSims is a distributed discrete event ABM that has been in production for nearly a decade. Working under a grant from the National Science Foundation and the NIH (NIGMS) funded MIDAS project, we are reengineering EpiSims to run as a single job on multiple Linux clusters on the NSF TeraGrid.
