At a first look these questions look really obvious, to the point that they do not really need to be answered. However, “the obvious” is what…

The Tiny Instrument Element

The Tiny Instrument Element

Abstract of the Tiny Instrument Element In the past few years, the idea of extending the Grid to cover also the remote access, control, management of instrument devices has been explored in a few initiatives. Existing tools lack in generality and require advanced specialized computer science knowledge, thus making them difficult to be broadly adopted…

Supporting Domain-Specific Programming in Web 2.0: a Case Study of Smart Devices

Abstract of Supporting Domain-Specific Programming in Web 2.0: a Case Study of Smart Devices Web 2.0 communities emerge regularly with the growing need for domain-specific programming over Web APIs. Even though Web mashups provide access to Web APIs, they ignore domain-specific programming needs. On the other hand, developing domain-specific languages (DSLs) is costly and not…

The many faces of the integration of instruments and the grid

Abstract: Current grid technologies offer unlimited computational power and storage capacity for scientific research and business activities in heterogeneous areas all over the world. Thanks to the grid, different virtual organisations can operate together in order to achieve common goals. However, concrete use cases demand a closer interaction between various types of instruments accessible from…
