(this paper presents an overview of the key findings of this project and highlights a number of open problems related to SLA-based job scheduling. It contains a large number of references to related work)

Viktor Yarmolenko, Rizos Sakellariou, Towards Increased Expressiveness in Service Level Agreements, Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, vol.19, no.14, 2007.[pdf]
(this paper argues for the benefits of using more expressive terms in SLAs; this work is of direct use to the implementation of Dynamic Service Level Agreements)

(this paper includes an evaluation of several heuristics to schedule parallel jobs bound by SLAs)
