    abstract = {We proposed to participate in the Austrian Grid Phase 2 within the frame of the activity “Grid Research”. We intend to deal with development of a distributed programming tool for grid computing which shall empower applications to perform scheduling decisions on their own, utilizing the information about the grid environment in order to adapt the algorithmic structure to the particular situation. Our goal is to design and implement a software framework and an API that can be used for developing grid-distributed parallel programs without leaving the level of the language in which the core application is written. The planned solution will be able to eliminate some algorithmic challenges of nowadays grid programming. In this paper, we outline our idea concerning the proposed software system and already discuss some implementation details.},
