October 30, 2010

The Data Intensive Cyber Environments (DICE) Group was recently recognized for publishing one of the top 14 papers in the first decade of the Context-aware Business Application Service Co-ordination in Mobile Computing Environments (CASCOM) Conference.

The paper, "The San Diego Supercomputer Center Storage (SDSC) Resource Broker," was selected out of 425 others from the first decade of CASCON for a special 20th anniversary volume.  Authors included DICE Group members Chaitanya Baru, division director, science research and development; Reagan Moore, SILS professor and director of the DICE group; Arcot Rajasekar, SILS professor and director of research technology for the DICE group; and Michael Wan, chief architect.

The DICE group's research on data management, storage, access, preservation and retrieval has been world-renowned for many years beginning as the San Diego Supercomputer Center. They brought their talents to the School of Information and Library Science and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2008. 

For more than 10 years the DICE group’s data grid technologies have been used in research projects worldwide to manage large, distributed data collections and support discovery, access, retrieval, replication, archiving and analysis tasks.  To learn more about the group and its research, visit the DICE Center Web site or irods.diceresearch.org.
