Distributed systems are concerned with how to organize a set of computing and distributed resources for specific applications. They promote forms of collaboration among different kinds of autonomous computers that appear to its users as a single coherent system. This paper is a short report of R&D activities and applications in the field of distributed system carried out by the research group. Compute-intensive applications for mass screening programs will be discussed. Moreover, a digital device for remote patient control with a look to the pervasive distributed sensor networks for personal safety applications is described. SFINGE, a research project on collaborative distributed systems based on virtual organizations is under development to innovate the production process in e-learning. At the purpose, is involved the Computer Center for Science at the INFN-Bari. It is a high-throughput computing facility connected to the European Grid Infrastructure and Worldwide LHC Grid.
