*3rd Cloud Futures Workshop 2012*: Hot Topics in Research and Education
May 7--8, 2012 | Berkeley, California, United States
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
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.
