The goal of DGC is to offer a synthesis on various approaches in Desktop Grid Computing, a decade after the pioneering work. Desktop Grids use computing, network and storage resources of idle desktop PCs distributed over multiple LANs or the Internet. Today, this type of computing platform forms one of the largest distributed computing systems, and currently provides scientists with tens of TeraFLOPS from hundreds of thousands of hosts. Several topics will be discussed in details, which may appeal to a much larger audience than the community of researcher in the field. DGC is certainly the first one that make a deep comprehensive and up-to-date presentation about the topic. It also draws perspectives, recent trends in the domain that underline the evolution of the initial concept.

The proposed book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course, for an advanced undergraduate course, or for a summer school. It will serve as a self-contained book and detailed overview of the relevant  Desktop Grid models.

* Desktop Grid Computing

The goal of this book is to offer a synthesis on various approaches in Desktop Grid Computing, a decade after the pioneering work. Desktop Grids use computing, network and storage resources of idle desktop PCs distributed over multiple LANs or the Internet. Today, this type of computing platform forms one of the largest distributed computing systems, and currently provides scientists with tens of TeraFLOPS from hundreds of thousands of hosts. Several topics will be discussed in details, which may appeal to a much larger audience than the community of researcher in the field. This book is certainly the first one that make a deep comprehensive and up-to-date presentation about the topic. It also draws perspectives, recent trends in the domain that underline the evolution of the initial concept.

** Audience:

The book is intended primarily for researchers, advanced undergraduate and graduate students in distributed computing, grid computing, scientific computing, high performance computing and related fields, as well as to engineers, professionals from academia and industry. The proposed book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course, for an advanced undergraduate course, or for a summer school. It will serve as a self-contained book and detailed overview of the relevant  Desktop Grid models. The general area of Desktop Grid computing and its state of-the-art methods and technologies are essential to many other computational science fields, including health, bio-informatics, medical imaging, physics, astronomy, climate prediction, mathematics, cryptography and more generally to simulation.

** About the book:

The book will be devoted to survey common techniques used in numerous models, algorithms, tools developed during the last decade to implemented the concept of Desktop Grid computing. Such techniques allow to implement and to solve many important sub-problems for middleware design. Such sub-problems are: scheduling, data management, security, volunteer computing, load balancing, model of parallelism, programming models, result certification, fault tolerance. The book will cover approximately X-Y pages of methods and applications, with accompanying tables and illustrations. It will seek to balance the theory of designing Desktop Grid middleware and architecture, with practice, applications and real world deployment on large scale platforms.
The book is organized in two parts. The first part is related to the birth (initial ideas, basic concepts...) of Desktop Grid Computing and the second part is related to what we call 'the maturity' of Desktop Grids that is to say to a more prospective vision of challenging problems for present and the future.

Each chapter will include the presentation of the sub-problems addressed in the chapter, discussions on the theoretical and practical issues, details about chosen implementation and experiments and finally references to further reading and notes.



** Outline (tentative)

The "Introduction" will give an overview of the problems to be discussed in the book, a brief history of various models in Desktop Grid Computing and examples of applications. The key organization of the two distinct parts is mainly according to a dedicated middleware, applications, experiments for the first part without forgetting the key essential notions (scheduling, data management, security, load balancing, model of parallelism, programming models, result certification, fault tolerance). The second part explores areas not covered in the first part, mainly not yet implemented topics and that constitutes research topics in themselves.
