*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.
