Three papers from the CCL were presented at the 2014 IEEE Conference on Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing in Chicago:
- Paul Brenner presented a regular paper,
Opportunistic High Energy Physics Computing in User Space with Parrot which shows how we use Parrot to provide transparent access to complex software stacks without requiring a dedicated shared file system.
- Olivia Choudhury presented Accelerating Comparative Genomics Workflows in a Distributed Environment with Optimized Data Partitioning at the C4Bio Workshop. This paper explores various strategies for data partitioning in bioinformatics applications; showing that partitioning for parallel execution must be specialized to the objective of the underlying tool.
- Nick Hazekamp presented a poster, Expanding Tasks of Logical Workflows into Independent Workflows for Improved Scalability in which he demonstrated a technique for transparently parallelizing components of a Galaxy workflow using Makeflow.
