Smart Resource Management for Data Streaming using an Online Bin-packing Strategy

The stream processing framework HarmonicIO is a prototype that addresses the needs for processing streams based on relatively large individual objects. In this regard, it is a specialized streaming framework well-suited for scientific workflows. Salman Toor and Oliver Stein presented this work, and our latest publication  Smart Resource Management for Data Streaming using an Online […]

ECMTB 2014 and Computational Software

I attended this years ECMTB 2014. Apart from many interesting sessions on mathematical modeling, I attended this minisymposia on software for multicellular simulations. All the speakers had done a great job developing software for the application community, but the impression was that they managed to do this despite being productive methods researchers, not as a […]
