High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Semantic Resource Descriptions in Advanced Cyberinfrastructures

SESSION: Semantic Resource Descriptions in Advanced Cyberinfrastructures

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Jeroen van der Ham, Yufeng Xin


Upcoming cyber-infrastructure systems must be capable of dynamically provisioning many kinds of cyber resources to meet demands of future science applications. Such systems must be self-managing, capable of federation to assemble the necessary resources to meet application needs. Such autonomy can be achieved by enabling the systems to reason about the available resources. The critical problem is identifying proper resource description mechanisms. Armed with such mechanisms, applications can request specific resources they need to complete their tasks, or create ‘fuzzy’ requests to an automated provisioning system based on application Service Level Objectives. Semantic resource descriptions based on modeling approaches and W3C standards provide a new approach. They allow for easy sharing of ‘vocabularies’ of concepts and relationships between them, as well as documents based on these vocabularies. This BoF session aims to provide a platform for exchanging experiences and ideas in the semantic resource description area and its possible applications.
