The FET global computing initiative

Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

The Clobal Computing (GC) initiative was launched in 2001 by the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) unit within the Information Society Technologies (IST) programme of the European Commission
The mission of this initiative was to support high-quality research that develops models, frameworks, methods and algorithms for constructing large-scale open distributed systems. Projects have addressed the fundamental challenges posed by rapidly evolving systems composed of very large numbers of autonomous, interacting mobile computational entities.
