Mid-scale Infrastructure - NSFCloud Webinar

September 25, 2013 11:00 AM  to 
September 25, 2013 12:00 PM
NSF Room 1150

CISE Research Infrastructure:  Mid-Scale Infrastructure - NSFCloud (CRI:  NSFCloud)

Sept. 25, 2013 11:00 AM to 
Sept. 25, 2013 12:00 PM

The National Science Foundation's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) invites you to attend a webinar to learn more about its recently released solicitation, CISE Research Infrastructure:  Mid-Scale Infrastructure - NSFCloud (CRI:  NSFCloud) (see NSF 13-602; http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2013/nsf13602/nsf13602.htm).

Cloud computing in various forms has rapidly become the dominant method of providing computing infrastructure for Internet services. The success of the cloud computation model is changing network architectures. Access network providers are moving toward providing edge infrastructure that exploits virtualization, allowing for innovative ways of offering data, communication, and computation with an approach highly tuned to support new distributed and mobile applications. While most of the original innovations supporting cloud computing came from the academic community, much of the recent innovation in cloud architectures has been driven by industry because of the infrastructure requirements. Meanwhile, academic researchers are now considering a new generation of innovative applications of cloud computing and cloud computing architectures, including time- and safety-critical cyber-physical applications for medical devices, the power grid, and transportation, which require advances beyond the directions industry is pursuing.

The Mid-Scale Infrastructure - NSFCloud solicitation seeks to support research infrastructure that enables the academic research community to (1) develop and experiment with novel cloud architectures and (2) pursue architecturally-enabled novel applications of cloud computing. A key goal of this research infrastructure is to address emerging challenges, including real-time and high-confidence systems.

This webinar is designed to describe the goals and focus of the NSFCloud solicitation, help investigators understand its scope, and answer any questions potential Principal Investigators (PIs) may have.

The Webinar will be held from 11am to 12pm EDT on Wednesday, September 25, 2013. Questions about the solicitation can be submitted in advance or during the webinar to nsfcloud@nsf.gov.

Please register at https://nsfevents.webex.com/nsfevents/onstage/g.php?d=279693371&t=a by 11:59pm EDT on Monday, September 23, 2013.

After your registration is accepted, you will receive an email with a URL to join the meeting. Please be sure to join a few minutes before the start of the webinar. This system does not establish a voice connection on your computer; instead, your acceptance message will have a toll-free phone number that you will be prompted to call after joining. Please note that this registration is a manual process; therefore, do not expect an immediate acceptance. In the event the number of requests exceeds the capacity, some requests may have to be denied.

The webinar will be archived for later viewing and linked to the NSFCloud program web page at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=504951. The archived version will be available within a few days after the webinar.  If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact nsfcloud@nsf.gov.

Please register by 11:59pm EDT on Monday, September 23, 2013.

This event is part of Webinars/Webcasts.
