Today, utility computing and Computing on Demand (CoD) could be parallelized to Grid computing because the latter is the best available technology to enable computing power as a massively available utility. In the present paper, iWatt, a naïve linear measurement for CoD services is introduced. The innovative feature of iWatt is considered to be the fact that facilitates both a consumption assignment to a Grid-ready service and a producing capability to CoD infrastructure in an analogous way to electric power device-network interaction.

INTRA- AND TRANS - DISCIPLINARY SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGIES

The production of scientific knowledge is basically devised in disciplines. The emergence of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has not yet reduced the dichotomy between hard and soft sciences. Contradicting meanings for the same concept or/and dissimilar terms for identical scientific contents often exist within a discipline and among disciplines. We initiate the discussion about meaningful categorization, search and exploitation of scientific knowledge by introducing the concept of intradisciplinary semantic technologies.
