?Simple Cyberinfrastructure?

Saul Youssef
Center for Computational Science
Boston University

The overall problem of cyberinfrastructure can be viewed as this: How
can the internet be presented in a coherent, easy to understand, fully
functional way?  The problem does have a simple, essentially unique
solution based on a particular free recursive distributive lattice and
a hierarchical currency.  We will present the solution and demonstrate
a working system called "egg" and show, in particular, the egg view of
the U.S. ATLAS Northeast Tier2 center. Areas where theoretical work and
new systems development are needed will be discussed.

Refreshments at 2:30 PM in Burden Lounge, Anderson 108
