    John Vincent Atanasoff has been called the father of the computer and his machine, the Atanasoff-Berry Computer, is known as the first electronic digital computer. This paper examines these statements, not from the point of view of the usual computer scientist, but from that of the professional historian. What does it mean to be first? Is it important to be first? On what basis is the claim made? ... View full abstract»

    The task that motivated Atanasoff's construction of the first electronic digital computer has a mathematical legacy going back thousands of years, and it remains the fundamental operation by which computers are measured; solving systems of linear equations. This is sometimes misconstrued as a "special purpose" form of computing, but is actually as general in application as is any basic block of so... View full abstract»

    Determining the context of users and machines is an important topic in current computing research. An essential detail of a physical object's context is its location, which includes both the actual position as well as the semantics of the surroundings. This paper focuses on the specific problem of determining the position of objects and people within buildings. A low-cost approach is based on wire... View full abstract»

    History repeats itself. Since the invention of the programmable computer, numerous computer scientists keep dedicating their professional lives to the design of "the single, best" programming model, whereas programmers "vote" by choosing their favourite languages and tools. Interestingly, these choices have always been guided by non-functional properties. For programming a single computer, the mos... View full abstract»

    Data replication can reduce access time and improve fault tolerance and load balancing. Typical requirements for a replica management system include an upper bound on replica round trip time, scalability, reliability, self-management and self-organization, and ability to maintain consistency of mutable replicas. This article presents the design and a prototype implementation of a scalable, autonom... View full abstract»

    Grid computing is a form of distributed computing that involves coordinating and sharing computing, application, data storage or network resources across dynamic and geographically dispersed organizations. The goal of grid tasks scheduling is to achieve high system throughput and to match the application need with the available computing resources. This is matching of resources in a non-determinis...

    Recently it was suggested that (mobile) software agents can provide an infrastructure for resource management in grids. In this note we introduce an approach based on agent teams, and discuss how it can he used in grid resource management. Details of initial implementation of one of its functionalities are discussed View full abstract»

    With the rapid evolution of mobile and ubiquitous computing, small-scale devices like personal digital assistants, smart "converged" phones and laptops now dominate the market. Despite the parallel emergence of the grid as the new distributed computing infrastructure, an integrated hybrid grid system that consists of both traditional fixed nodes but mobile and limited devices as well, has only rec...

    The convergence of telecommunications, computing and content industries has been one of the major trends during the recent years. The convergence changes the digital service market from the existing vertical "pipes" to a more general horizontal structure. As a result of this development the integrated service-network-terminal connections is resolved into generic services available to multipurpose ... View full abstract»

    Business intelligence applications involve complex queries on very large databases. Users typically view the data as multidimensional data cubes. Computing multidimensional aggregates in large data cubes is a performance bottleneck for many OLAP applications. Calculating the answer of an aggregation query can be too expensive in terms of time and storage space. In this paper we describe some of th... View full abstract»

    We design a lightweight overlay network, called Arigatoni, that is suitable to deploy the global computing paradigm over the Internet. Communications over the behavioral units of the model are performed by a simple communication protocol. Basic global computers can communicate by first registering to a brokering service and then by mutually asking and offering services, in a way that is reminiscen... View full abstract»
