Abstract
Prototyping a framework that will support a number of agent-based algorithms in a highly distributed and heterogeneous computing environment.
Use of FutureSystems
For development and testing, and as one set of resources for submitting jobs which will also run on Quarry, DiaGrid and other resources.
Scale of Use
Modest and sporadic. To test scaling it would be ideal to have access to a large number (1000+) of cores simultaneously across multiple systems, but only required for a short duration (minutes).
