RCUK Cloud Working Group Workshop - 1st Dec, London - Register now!

Posted by n.chuehong on 28 October 2015 - 10:23am

The RCUK Cloud Working Group are hosting this workshop to bring to together researchers and technical specialists to share their experiences in the application of cloud computing technology for the research community.   The meeting will include presentations from a range of research domains including particle physics, the environmental sciences, medical research and bioinformatics.

Cloud computing is a rapidly developing technology area with some key challenges for the research community.  This workshop will focus on some key themes including the deployment of private cloud in research e-infrastructures, the use of public cloud for research, federation of resources and adaptation of cloud technology to the specialised requirements of research application workloads. 

Whilst this workshop will be primarily about knowledge sharing, we are keen to identify themes for future workshops and for the establishment of task forces to look at particular issues in some depth and report back to the group.

The RCUK Cloud Working Group and The Cloud for Research Special Interest Group exist to help researchers and technical specialists using cloud computing technologies and services to share knowledge and expertise. The Working Group and The Cloud-SIG is supported by Research Councils UK (RCUK).
