    abstract = {In the frame of the Austrian Grid Phase 2, we have designed and implemented an API for grid computing that can be used for developing grid-distributed parallel programs without leaving the level of the language in which the core application is written. Our software framework is able to utilize the information about heterogeneous grid environments in order to adapt the algorithmic structure of parallel programs to the particular situation. Since our solution hides lowlevel grid-related execution details from the application by providing an abstract execution model, it is able to eliminate some algorithmic challenges of nowadays grid programming. In this paper, we report on the first feature-complete prototype of our topology-aware software system extended with some benchmark results and a performance comparison between MPICH-G2 and our system.},
