Scheduling Theory techniques have been widely used by the scientific community as a tool to build high performance parallel and distributed systems. The application of these techniques allows not only a better understanding of the system and its underlying execution models, but also the creation of efficient heuristics and approximation algorithms with guaranteed performance.In this scientific research project we will study how to extend classical scheduling models in order to represent the dynamism and flexibility that characterize the new platforms of Cloud Computing. Besides proposing a new theoretical model for these new platforms, we will develop new approximation algorithms and heuristics with guaranteed performance that will allow the creation of Cloud Computing platforms composed of several cloud providers (cloud communities) for high performance computing applications.
