Seminar: Multi-objective scheduling and enactment of scientific workflows in Clouds

with No Comments

The talk gives first an overview of the research conducted at the Institute of Computer Science, University of Innsbruck in the area of parallel and distributed systems. Afterwards, it focuses scientific  workflows (our common topic of interest) by presenting research in the area of multi-objective scheduling and enactment for makespan, cost,  energy efficiency and fault tolerance using provenance information on distributed Cloud and manycore parallel infrastructures.
