IBM Award for Cloud Computing

Dr. Michael Huhns has received an IBM Faculty Research Award to conduct research into cloud computing and virtualization. He will be investigating mechanisms whereby cloud and virtualization users can share their cloud resources across institutions in the Southeast. The mechanisms will leverage OpenStack, OpenFlow, and other standard protocols for cloud computing. The expected outcome of the effort is that it will be easier to deploy and manage applications across integrated clouds.

Undergraduate Research Award

We congratulate Casey Cole for winning a Distributed Research Experiences for Undergraduates award. She is building a webapp for storing and easy retrieval of doping experiment results, visualizing trends in these results, as well as developing regular expression-based text analysis tools to automatically extract doped materials information from research papers.
