Caption: Computer science Professor Miron Livny is principal investigator of a major new partnership between the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy to create a national "Open Science Grid," which will use distributed computing techniques to provide scientists with a massive infusion of computing power and storage capacity. The grid will harness the computational power of more than 30 participating universities and federal research laboratories. Livny's pioneering efforts in distributed computing, including the Condor project, were influential in developing the five-year, $30 million project.
