Dear all,
We just wanted to bring to your attention that ScienceCloud2011 is only 
3 days away, and will take place on Wednesday, June 8th, from 9AM to 
5PM, in San Jose California, co-located with HPDC 2011, and the FCRC 
2011 conferences.

We have posted the final program online at 
http://www.cs.iit.edu/~iraicu/ScienceCloud2011/program.htm; note that we 
already posted the paper PDF files, and we will post the slides in the 
coming days.

We have an exciting keynote given by Dr. Ion Stoica on "Mesos: A 
Platform for Fine-Grained Resource Sharing in the Data Center". Dr. 
Stoica is an Associate Professor in the EECS Department at University of 
California at Berkeley, where he does research on cloud computing and 
networked computer systems. He is also the co-founder of Conviva, a 
startup to commercialize technologies for large scale video distribution.

You will find 8 exciting talks that span industry (Yahoo, Microsoft), 
government labs (LBNL, ANL, JPL), and academia (UCBerkeley, USC, 
UWashington, CalTech, UVirginia, UCSB). The list of presentations are:
1. The Case for Being Lazy: How to Leverage Lazy Evaluation in MapReduce
2. Debunking some Common Misconceptions of Science in the Cloud
3. Experiences Using Cloud Computing for A Scientific Workflow Application
4. Cumulus: Open Source Storage Cloud for Science
5. Adaptive Rate Stream Processing for Smart Grid Applications on Clouds
6. An Automated Approach to Cloud Storage Service Selection
7. Magellan: Experiences from a Science Cloud
8. Neptune: A Domain Specific Language for Deploying HPC Software on 
Cloud Platforms
