Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issuepeer-review


In recent years, considerable interest in the design of parallel and distributed applications has emerged from various disciplines including database systems, network systems, operating systems and computer architecture, as well as the traditional high-performance community.

common purpose, where the components are not all co-located at a single site'.
