Summary on Grant Application Form
Lancaster's Distributed Multimedia Research Group is an internationally renowned team of researchers investigating all aspects of communications and distributed systems. One of our great strengths, as acknowledged by the International Review of UK Research in Computer Science is our focus on pragmatic systems research. Another great strength is the critical mass of the team and the coverage of a broad range of technical areas from the application through the middleware to the underlying (highly heterogeneous) network. This document makes the case for a Platform Grant to support this team. A major aim is to exploit the breadth of the research, in particular to bring together our strengths in both next generation networking and middleware. We foresee a range of exciting research initiatives emerging from this bringing together, exploiting modern middleware technologies at all levels of the system architecture, deriving holistic solutions to contemporary problems, and examining issues that cross-cut the various levels of a system. A Platform Grant will enable us to strengthen and provide stability for the group, to launch a series of investigative short-term projects to evaluate more speculative ideas, and to extend our outreach activities in terms of technology transfer, spin-offs, standardisation work and contributions to open source software.
