    Context middleware is an effective way to isolate the complexity of acquiring, processing and using context/situation from context-aware applications. The context middleware design and implementation needs to support different applications, therefore the corresponding context modeling faces more challenges: how to support different requirement patterns, to model situation transitions effectively, ...

    Increasing network and data intensive applications demand more to computing and memory capacity. But tight coupling between CPU and memory makes it hard to share memory components, resulting in difficulty to improve system performance and reduce system cost. Furthermore, nowadays memory architecture cannot adapt "small computing, big memory" feature of application. Supporting by optical interconne... View full abstract»

    It is an important direction of the development of parallel computer architecture to implement single system image (SSI) on clusters, since SSI supports easier programming and administration on clusters. Currently, most SSI studies focused on the middleware level of clusters, leading to some problems of poor transparence, low performance and so on. This paper presents a novel solution to provide S...

    Large scale matrix inversion has been used in many domains and block-based Gauss-Jordan (G-J) algorithm as a classical method of large matrix inversion has become the focus of many researchers. Many people show us their parallel version of G-J. But the large parallel granularity in those algorithms restricts the performance of parallel block-based G-J algorithm, especially in the cluster environme... View full abstract»

    The ever increasing number of cores per chip will be accompanied by a pervasive data deluge whose size will probably increase even faster than CPU core count over the next few years. This suggests the importance of parallel data analysis and data mining applications with good multicore, cluster and grid performance. This paper considers data clustering, mixture models and dimensional reduction pre... View full abstract»

    Prematurity is a troublesome problem that has to be faced and got rid of by many optimization algorithms, especially the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). To combat with prematurity, this paper proposes a self-adaptive casting net mechanism that is able to search global fitness efficiently. To keep diversity of particles, the self-adaptive casting net mechanism tunes parameters dynamically accord... View full abstract»

    Multi-level cache hierarchies are very common in today's networked storage environments. Dedicated data servers or file servers are simultaneously accessed by multi-applications of multi-clients. Workload shift results in cache pollution and degrade of hit ratio. Widely used cache policies work well on the case when a single level cache separates the data provider and data consumer, but poorly on ... View full abstract»

    It has been common idea to run a big job or batch jobs by stealing idle CPU cycles of some workstations. The motivation for this scenario is based on the fact that most of network workstation's CPU cycles are idle, even during peak hours. But actually, it is so difficult work for a common PC user that he has to spend many hours or days to run his tasks or batch jobs on one PC. The most important t... View full abstract»

    As dynamic-level scheduling algorithm does not consider the risk taken by resource nodes and users' demand, it proposes an analytic hierarchy process approach (AHP) based improved DLS algorithm. By such AHP approach, it manages the task provided by users, and obtains the weight value which reflects users' demand. Because the weight value contains the information about deadline, reparation duty and... View full abstract»

    Data intensive applications, such as high energy physics, usually have a large amount of input data requires analysis. These data are often shared and replicated across the data grid. As the computing power increases, the delay caused by "waiting for input data" will become more pronounced. In this paper, we study the impact of parallel download on job scheduler performance in data grid environmen... View full abstract»
