    Service delivery is becoming a hot topic in transparent computing (TC). However, transfers in TC lack adequate support for applications with nonresident content and lower-latency requirements. In this article, the authors analyze the quantitative benefits attributed to TC (lower latency) and find that benefits can't be assured in multiple terminal machine scenarios. They propose a proof-of-concept... View full abstract»

    The authors present a highly scalable system for power-efficient wearable devices, TCID (transparent computing-based intelligent device), which leverages streaming-based execution to make applications in a wearable device obtain data from a server at runtime, eliminating limitations on the size of storage space for program execution on the device. To improve performance of streaming-based executio... View full abstract»

    Driven by the development of the mobile Internet and the emergence of heterogeneous mobile devices, context-aware applications are attracting growing interest. Based on the idea of transparent computing, the authors propose a novel context-aware service provision (CASP) architecture to transparently and actively provide suitable services to clients. In this article, they present the system model a... View full abstract»

    In transparent computing, client terminals are rather lightweight, while all other resources (including OSs) are stored on remote servers and delivered on demand to clients via streaming. In this article, the authors propose a Multilevel Access Control Scheme in Transparent Computing (MACTC) to protect user data with different security levels and provide multilevel access control and valid identit...

    Compared to desktop computers, smartphones frequently connect to the Internet via various applications through private protocols, resulting in severe difficulties in searching publicly shared information and in measuring network-layer performance. Most related work has focused on device-based software-assisted measurement, which suffers scalability as well as usability issues. In this article, the... View full abstract»

    A simulation methodology is proposed to evaluate the performance of large-scale Web search engines hosted by datacenters. The salient features of the methodology are the use of models of parallel computing to overcome the complexities associated with the simulation of hardware and system software details; a circulating tokens approach to represent sequences of operations that compete for search en...

    The ideas in this article resulted from many years of research in engineering, physics, computer, and cognitive sciences, as well as teaching experience in college and secondary schools. While its main purpose is to discuss the universality of modeling and simulation process and its pedagogical use in teaching, there are several conclusions to be drawn. View full abstract»

    Many of us write code regularly as part of our scientific activity, perhaps even as a full-time job. But even though we write--and use--more and more code, we rarely think about the roles that this code will have in our research, in our publications, and ultimately in the scientific record. In this article, the author outlines some frequent roles of code in computational science. These roles aren'... View full abstract»
