Autonomic Computing Research
ACCORD: An Autonomic Component Framework
This research addresses programming
abstractions and supporting infrastructure to enable the definition and
This research develops mechanisms and supporting infrastructure to
enable autonomic applications to be dynamically and opportunistically composed
from autonomic components. The composition will be based on policies and
constrains that are defined, deployed and executed at run time, and will be
aware of available Grid resources and components, and their current states,
requirements, and capabilities.
This research models and mechanisms for support distributed applications
that are build on purely local and opportunistics interactions defined by
local constraints and objectives.
RUDDER: The AutoMate
Deductive Rule Engine
RUDDER is a peer-to-peer deductive engine that provides easy-to-use standard interfaces for
users to define, modify and delete rules and policies, algorithms and
mechanisms to deploy and execute them based on context information and
support for managing their execution including conflicts and exceptions.
Comet: A Scalable Coordination Space for Decentralized
The objective of this research is to build a scalable content-based coordination space for wide-area P2P
Squid: A Decentralized Discovery Service
The objective of this project is to develop distributed indexing schemes for distributed P2P data sharing and discovery systems that can
support scalable keyword searches using partial keywords, ranges and wildcards, while
providing search guarantees.
Content-based Middleware for Pervasive Applications
Meteor is an infrastructure for content-based decoupled interactions in
pervasive Grid environments providing services for content routing,
content discovery and associative interactions.
Access Control Engine
This research investigates access control models and mechanisms that will
are based on the state and context of the interacting entities.
P2P Messaging Substrate
This project addresses the design, development, and deployment of key services on top of the
Grid middleware infrastructure to support autonomic applications.
