Cloud computing has changed the way we work, the way we communicate online, even the way we relax at night with a movie. But even as “the cloud” starts to cross over into popular parlance, the full potential of the technology to directly impact science, medicine, transportation, and other industries has yet to be realized. To help investigate and develop this promising cloud computing future, the National Science Foundation today awarded $10 million to a group of institutions led by the Computation Institute for the development of Chameleon, a new experimental testbed for cloud architecture and applications.

In May, dozens of researchers, IT experts, librarians, and entrepreneurs gathered at the University of Chicago for a two-day discussion about the future of research information technology -- new tools to push forward the practice and field of science. Co-presented by the Computation Institute and Digital Science, the Information, Interaction, and Influence meeting featured panels on science start-ups, the experience of postdoctoral researchers, smarter profile/networking platforms, computational research, and much more.
