Energy-Aware Scheduling and Resource Allocation for Large-Scale Distributed Systems

Global warming and climate change trends call for urgent action to manage information and communication technologies in a sustainable manner by minimizing energy consumption and utilizing resources more efficiently. Distributed computing environments have become the de facto platforms for many applications. These systems bring a range of heterogeneous resources that should be able to function continuously and autonomously. However, distributed systems expend a lot of energy which raises a range of important research issues related to the use and virtualisation of ICT resources in a way offers significant potential to contribute to the goal of what has been described as ‘green computing’. This talk will review some of the important questions related to the development of new algorithms and tools for energy–aware resource management allocation for large–scale distributed systems enabling these systems to become environmentally friendly.

About Dr. Albert Y. Zomaya
Albert Y. Zomaya is currently the Chair Professor of High Performance Computing and Networking in the School of Information Technologies, The University of Sydney. Prior to joining Sydney University he was a Full Professor in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department at the University of Western Australia, where he also led the Parallel Computing Research Laboratory during the period 1990–2002. He is the author/co-author of seven books, more than 350 publications in technical journals and conferences, and the editor of eight books and eight conference volumes. He is currently an associate editor for 16 journals, the Founding Editor of the Wiley Book Series on Parallel and Distributed Computing and a Founding Co-Editor of the Wiley Book Series on Bioinformatics. Professor Zomaya was the Chair the IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (1999–2003) and currently serves on its executive committee. He also serves on the Advisory Board of the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing and IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society Technical Committee on Self-Organization and Cybernetics for Informatics and is a Scientific Council Member of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social–Informatics, and Telecommunications Engineering (in Brussels). He received the 1997 Edgeworth David Medal from the Royal Society of New South Wales for outstanding contributions to Australian Science. Professor Zomaya is also the recipient of the Meritorious Service Award (in 2000) and the Golden Core Recognition (in 2006), both from the IEEE Computer Society. He is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the IEEE, the Institution of Electrical Engineers (U.K.), and a Distinguished Engineer of the ACM. His research interests are in the areas of high performance computing, parallel algorithms, mobile computing, and bioinformatics.

Professor Kai Hwang,
Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Director of Internet and P2P/Grid Computing Laboratory
University of Southern California
Virtual Clusters for Grid, Cloud, and High-performance Computing 
In this talk, the impact of cloud computing and emerging Internet applications will be accessed. A virtual-machine approach to cluster partitioning and mechanisms for replicated data protection will be presented. These techniques enable dynamic cloud resource provisioning and secure data management in web-scale distributed computing and business applications. The talk covers the impact of virtualization on grid, cloud, and high-performance computing platforms. He will discuss research frontiers in building virtualized grid/cloud infrastructures and assessing some grid/cloud projects at USA, France, Japan, and China, that explore distributed server clusters and globally deployed datacenters..
