The continuing merger of computer and communication technologies is leading to a new computing/communications infrastructure of unprecedented magnitude, enabling new applications with broad economic and social impact. Yet, such applications pose major challenges to researchers in Computer Science and in application domains. The topic of the proposed research program is the realization of Distributed Laboratories, where individuals can interact with each other, and more importantly, with powerful, distributed computational tools as readily as if all were located in a single site. Our intent is to permit scientists, engineers, and managers at geographically distinct locations (including individuals 'tele-commuting' from home) to combine their expertise in solving shared problems, by allowing them to simultaneously view, interact with, and steer sophisticated computations executing on high performance distributed computing platforms.
