Conference paper


This paper proposes a policy adjuster-driven Grid workflow management system, which supports collaborative heart disease diagnosis applications. To select policies according to service level agreement of users and dynamic resource status, we devised a policy adjuster to negotiate workflow management polices and resource management policies using policy decision scheme.
