ABSTRACT

Faculty Summit 2008 - Day 1
Computing at Scale: Challenges & Opportunities - Urs Hoelzle, Rob Pike, Ed Lazowska, & Jeannette Wing
The frontiers of computer science are being increasingly impacted by computing at very large scale: that is on very large scale computing systems (perhaps in the cloud) with possibly significant dependence on large scale data sets and/or on systems with shared use by vast populations. This panel will explore the potential opportunities and challenges in computer science research in this space.

Speakers: Urs Hoelzle, Rob Pike, Ed Lazowska, & Jeannette Wing
