Abraham Matta Wins NSF Grant for Application Software Project
On September 16th, Abraham Matta, a Hariri Research Fellow, received a grant from the Division of Computer and Network Systems, National Science Foundation for his proposal titled “CNS Core: Small: Collaborative Research: HEECMA: A Hybrid Elastic Edge-Cloud Application Management Architecture”.
This project will examine how application software can be partitioned and deployed over different parts of a distributed computing infrastructure. By developing the theoretical foundations of decomposing applications over a distributed complex cyberinfrastructure, the team will study various decompositions and corresponding virtualization and resource allocation services.
The National Science Foundation is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 and is here to support basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future. Division of Computer and Network Systems supports research and education activities that invent new computing and networking technologies and that explores new ways to make use of existing technologies.
Abraham Matta is Professor and Chair of the Computer Science Department at Boston University. He works on the design of network protocols and architectures based on a range of computer sciences principles, mathematical techniques, and performance evaluation tools.
