This paper proposes a runtime environment for dynamically changing, parallel scientific applications. This kind of applications is motivated by the LOFAR/LOIS project aiming at a multidisciplinary research platform for natural scientists and engineers. The dynamic infrastructure in turn is than mapped to Grid Services environments.
