Brief description Distributed computing systems are the platform of choice for many applications. In these systems, applications are submitted by a large number of users that compete for the shared heterogeneous resources (computers, storage communication links, etc). Thus, a distributed system can be viewed as a collection of computing, storage and communication resources shared by active users. Towards this end, a new generation of algorithms and software tools need to be developed for the efficient utilisation of these systems through an appropriate allocation of data to competing applications and users. This project is a major step in this direction.
