NSFCloud Workshop on Experimental Support for Cloud Computing in Arlington, VA — position paper deadline Oct. 31

October 31, 2014 @ 12:00 am

On December 11-12, a workshop is being held at the Waterview Conference Center in Arlington, VA to inform and to solicit feedback from the scientific community about experimental facilities to be developed under the NSFCloud program. This program will also offer academic researchers an opportunity to contribute to development efforts associated with the NSFCloud program.

Background: NSFCloud is a long term, comprehensive initiative funded through the CISE Research Infrastructure: Mid-Scale Infrastructure program that seeks infrastructure that will specifically enable the academic research community to (a) custom develop and experiment with novel cloud architectures and (b) to pursue architecturally-enabled novel applications of cloud computing.

NSFCloud Objectives: “While most of the original innovations supporting cloud computing came from the academic community, much of the recent innovation in cloud architectures has been driven by industry because of the infrastructure requirements. Academic researchers are now considering a new generation of innovative applications of cloud computing and cloud computing architectures, including time- and safety-critical cyber-physical applications for medical devices, power grid, and transportation, which require advances beyond the directions industry is pursuing.” (see http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2013/nsf13602/nsf13602.htm and http://www.nsf.gov/attachments/128999/public/transcript.pdf)
