Distributed Computing Research Group is concerned with the development of novel middleware architectures and parallel algorithms based on shared persistent space and the emergent behavior of large scale distributed systems. One of the earliest virtual research groups, the Distributed Computing group gathers together researchers from the UCSC with others from other universities and the industry periodically over the years. The most recent project undertaken is the GRID Computing project in collaboration with Uppsala University in Sweden..
