We are less than a month away from the 1st ACM Workshop on Scientific
Cloud Computing (ScienceCloud2010, http://dsl.cs.uchicago.edu/ScienceCloud2010/),
which is co-located
with the ACM International Symposium on High Performance Distributed
Computing (HPDC, http://hpdc2010.eecs.northwestern.edu/), and will take
place in Chicago Illinois on Monday
I wanted to bring a few things to your attention:
Don't forget that the HPDC/workshop early registration ends June 1st,
after which the registration fees will increase.
- We have Dr. Dennis Gannon from Microsoft Research giving the
- The complete program is now online at http://dsl.cs.uchicago.edu/ScienceCloud2010/program.htm,
session chairs and accepted papers.
- We have a panel discussion organized as a conclusion to the
workshop; more information on the panel can be found at http://dsl.cs.uchicago.edu/ScienceCloud2010/program.htm#Panel_on_Scientific_Cloud_Computing.
The panel discussion moderator is Dr. Pete Beckman
(Argonne National Laboratory & University of Chicago),
and the five panelists are Dr. Manish Parashar (Rutgers
University), Dr. Dennis Gannon (Microsoft Research), Dr. Kate
Keahey (Argonne National Laboratory & University of Chicago),

Please submit questions for the panel discussion you would
like to see answered during the panel to iraicu@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
with a subject "ScienceCloud2010: panel discussion questions".
- With the generous sponsorship of Microsoft Research and Indiana
University, we will be organizing and hosting a general workshop
reception/dinner on Monday evening, for which all registered HPDC
and/or workshops attendees will be able to attend free of charge. The
specifics around this reception/dinner are still in the works, but if
you will be in Chicago on Monday evening, keep your calendar open.
We look forward to seeing you in Chicago next month!
