MetadataShow full item record
This paper gives an overview of the material to be discussed in the invited keynote presentation by H. J. Siegel; it summarizes our research in . Performing computing and communication tasks on parallel and distributed systems involves the coordinated use of different types of machines, networks, interfaces, and other resources. Decisions about how best to allocate resources are often based on estimated values of task and system parameters, due to uncertainties in the system environment. An important research problem is the development of resource management strategies that can guarantee a ...
