Raj Kettimuthu, principal software development specialist and project lead in Argonne’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division, was program chair of the 9th International Workshop on Scheduling and Resource Management for Parallel and Distributed Systems, held in Lyon, France, Oct. 1, 2013. The workshop was held in conjunction with the 2103 International Conference on Parallel Processing.
The half-day workshop brought together researchers and practitioners to share their experiences, new ideas, and latest research results in scheduling and resource management in parallel and distributed systems, including grids and clouds.
The workshop was well attended (approximately 30 participants). Each of the seven talks attracted a number of questions from the participants, which led to interesting discussions. Overall, this year’s workshop was a good lead up to the 10th edition next year in Minneapolis, MN.
