3rd Cloud Futures Workshop 2012: Hot Topics in Research and Education

May 7–8, 2012 | Berkeley, California, United States

Website: http://research.microsoft.com/en-US/events/cloudfutures2012/

Cloud computing is an exciting platform for research and education. It has the potential to advance scientific and technological progress 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 and education, however, we 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.


The Cloud Futures Workshop series brings together thought leaders from academia, industry, and government to discuss the role of cloud computing across a variety of research and educational areas. Presentations, posters and discussions will investigate how new programming techniques, software platforms, software engineering and methodology, and methods of research and teaching in the cloud may solve distinct challenges arising in diverse areas of society.


General Co-Chairs
