Attaining High Performance Communications: A Vertical Approach
As technology pushes the Petascale barrier, and the next generation Exascale
Computing requirements are being dened, it is clear that this type of computational
capacity can be achieved only by accompanying advancement in
communication technology. Next generation computing platforms will consist
of hundreds of thousands of... Digital Preservation for Heritages: Technologies and Applications
