报告题目：Web-Scale Supercomputing: from Grid/P2P Networks to Massive Systems Exploring Internet Clouds
Abstract: In this talk, Dr. Hwang will assess recent advances in distributed computing and emerging Internet applications. He will present new techniques and technologies to build massively distributed systems in solving complex problems and upgrading web services. The talk covers evolutional changes from wide-area computational Grids and peer-to-peer (P2P) networks to cloud computing paradigm. In particular, he presents distributed system models, technological advances, and the demand of quantum jump in distributed supercomputing and personalized web services. The talk identifies research frontiers and reviews some current academic/industrial projects that explore massive resources over distributed datasets collected in Internet clouds dynamically in real time.
