%X The Bulk Synchronous model of parallel programming has
proved to be a successful paradigm for developing portable,
scalable, high performance software. Originally developed
for use with traditional supercomputers, it was later
applied to networks of workstations. Following the emergence
of grid computing, new programming models are needed to
exploit its potential. We consider the main issues relating
to adapting BSP for this purpose, and propose a new model
Dynamic BSP, which brings together many elements from
previous work in order to deal with quality\-of\-service and
heterogeneity issues. Our approach uses a task\-farmed
implementation of supersteps.
