Call for Abstracts
Cloud computing is fast becoming the most important platform for research. 
Scientists today need vast computing resources to collect, share, manipulate, and 
explore massive data sets as well as to build and deploy new services for research.  
Cloud computing has the potential to advance research discoveries by making data 
and computing resources readily available at unprecedented economy of scale and 
nearly infinite scalability.  To realize the full promise of cloud computing for 
research, however, one must think about the cloud as a holistic platform for 
creating new services, new experiences, and new methods to pursue research, 
teaching and scholarly communication.  This goal presents a broad range of 
interesting questions.

We invite extended abstracts that illustrate the role of cloud computing across a 
variety of research and curriculum development areas---including  computer science, 
earth sciences, healthcare, humanities, life sciences, and social sciences---that 
highlight how new techniques and methods of research in the cloud may solve distinct 
challenges arising in those diverse areas.  Please include a bio (150 words max) and 
a brief abstract (300 words max) of a 30-minute short talk on a topic that describes 
practical experiences, experimental results, and vision papers.

Please submit your abstract by February 10, 2010 to cloudfut@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 

Invited talks will be announced on February 18, 2010
