Theprogramcommitteeispleasedtopresent the complaints of the third foreign convention on Grid and Cooperative Comp- ing (GCC2004), which includes a set of fine technical papers, posters, workshops, and keynote speeches. The papers authorised hide quite a lot of fascinating themes, together with source grid and repair grid, details grid and information grid, grid monitoring,managementand organizationtools, grid portal, grid carrier, internet s- vices and their QoS, carrier orchestration, grid middleware and toolkits, software program glue applied sciences, grid protection, leading edge grid purposes, complicated source reservation andscheduling,performanceevaluationandmodeling,computer-supportedcooperative paintings, P2P computing, automated computing, and meta-information administration. The convention maintains to develop and this 12 months a list overall of 581 manuscripts (including workshop submissions) have been submitted for attention. waiting for this progress, the scale of this system committee was once elevated from 50 participants for GCC 2003 for 70 in GCC 2004. correct changes from prior variations of the conf- ence: it really is worthy declaring a signi?cant raise within the variety of papers submitted via authors from outdoor China; and the popularity price used to be a lot below for p- vious GCC meetings. From the 427 papers submitted to the most convention, this system committee chosen simply ninety six common papers for oral presentation and sixty two brief papers for poster presentation within the program.

Open: How Compaq Ended IBM's PC Domination and Helped Invent by Rod Canion

By Rod Canion

The tale of Compaq is famous: 3 ex-Texas tools managers based Compaq with modest enterprise investment. simply 4 years later, Compaq used to be at the Fortune 500 checklist, and, years after that, they'd handed $1 billion in annual profit. No corporation had ever completed those milestones so rapidly.

But few understand the tale at the back of the tale. In 1982, whilst Compaq was once based, there has been no software program standardization, so each model of private machine required its personal exact program software program. simply 8 years later, compatibility with the open notebook common had turn into ubiquitous, and it has persisted to be for over decades.

This didn't take place accidentally. Cofounder after which CEO Rod Canion and his workforce made a chain of dicy and bold decisions—often dealing with feedback and incredulity—that allowed the open computing device ordinary industry to thrive and the extraordinary merits of open computing to be realized.

A never-before-published insider account of Compaq's amazing recommendations and judgements, Open offers worthy classes in management in occasions of trouble, administration decision-making less than the strain of outstanding development, and the ability of a distinct, pervasive culture.

Open tells the magnificent tale of Compaq's meteoric upward push from humble beginnings to develop into the computer chief in precisely over a decade. alongside the way in which, Compaq helped swap the face of computing whereas setting up the root for today's global of capsules and clever telephones.
