Abstract
June 6-10, 2011

Cloud computing provides elastic compute and storage resources to solve data intensive science and engineering problems, but the number of students from under-represented universities who are involved and exposed to this area is minimal. In order to attract underserved students, we intend to train faculty members and graduate students from the Association of Computer/Information Sciences and Engineering Departments at Minority Institutions (ADMI) in the area of cloud computing through a one-week workshop conducted on the campus of Elizabeth City State University. This workshop will enable faculty members and graduate students from underserved institutions, who are involved with minority undergraduate students to gain information about various aspects of cloud computing while serving as a catalyst in propagating their knowledge to their students.
Use of FutureSystems
FutureGrid will serve as a platform for communicating concepts of cloud computing
Scale of Use
15 generic users will need modest resources
