Singh Receives Awards to Study OOI Cyberinfrastructure

Dr. Munindar Singh, professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded two awards totaling $163,045 by the University of California – San Diego/National Science Foundation to support his research proposal titled “Policy-Based Governance for the OOI Cyberinfrastructure”.

The awards covered the period from September 1, 2009 to August 31, 2010.
Abstract - This project developed policy-based service governance modules for the Oceanographic Observatories Initiative (OOI) Cyberinfrastructure. The main objectives of the proposed project include (1) formulating the key conceptual model underlying the patterns of governance; (2) formalizing "best practices" patterns familiar to the scientific community and seeding the cyberinfrastructure with them; (3) understanding user requirements for tools that support creating and editing patterns of governance.
