PSE Session 2006

gSession on Innovative and Collaborative Problem Solving Environment

in Distributed Resourcesh

in conjunction with International Conference on e-Science and Grid Technologies Dec. 4-6, 2006 Amsterdam, Netherlands (

December 4-6, 2006, Amsterdam, Netherlands


Problem Solving Environment (PSE) is a newly emerging scientific and technological active area in eScience. PSEs provide innovative computational facilities for easy incorporation of novel solution methods to solve a target class of problems in Grid environments, distributed and heterogeneous resources, collaborative environments and so on. Key issues addressed in this Session include PSE for Grid, PSE for collaborations, PSE for heterogeneous distributed system management, PSE for application developments, PSE for scientific computing and PSE for education, as well as PSEs for eSceince-relating issues. PSEs provide computational facilities to solve target problems in the novel way in the fields presented above. Grid and distributed systems are complicated, and contain huge information systems including heterogeneous computer hardware resources, application softwares, middlewares, experimental instruments, and so on. The PSEs are facilities to help users work on the complicated systems. The PSE researches and technology have been intensively explored, and at present the PSEs have started to realize this PSE dream: for example, PSE for Grid deploys middleware or application software on heterogeneous distributed resources across multi sites, and PSEs for application developments may generate, for example, parallel software. Especially in U.S.A, EU and Japan Grid projects have been started and have produced fruitful results. The PSEs are also essentially important for the Grid projects. The PSEs in the Grid projects will be included in the Session. Papers relating to these PSEs in eSceince are welcome to the PSE Session.
