Dept of Physics Colloquium: Simple Cyberinfrastructure

November 21, 2008
2:50 pm - 4:00 pm
Nelson Auditorium, Anderson Hall


The overall problem of cyberinfrastructure can be viewed as this: How can the internet be presented in a coherent, easy to understand, fully functional way? The problem does have a simple, essentially unique solution based on a particular free recursive distributive lattice and a hierarchical currency. We will present the solution and demonstrate a working system called "egg" and show, in particular, the egg view of the U.S. ATLAS Northeast Tier2 center. Areas where theoretical work and new systems development are needed will be discussed.

This colloquium is arranged by the Physics department but is also of interest to Computer Science
