Talk: From Mars to Earth through Cloud Computing

Our society has benefited from Space exploration in many ways. Many of the inventions we use nowadays have their origin in or have been improved by Space research. Computer Science is not an exception.


This talk will introduce the application of Cloud Computing done by me in the context of different Mars missions: Mars MetNet (Spain-Russia-Finland), MSL Curiosity (NASA) and ExoMars2016 (ESA). The achieved know-how allowed the optimization of other areas on Planet Earth, such as weather forecast and agricultural wireless sensor networks processing.

Tutorial: HPCCloud 101, HPC on Cloud Computing for newcomers

Never been into Cloud Computing before? Do you think that an extra computing power is crucial for your research? Do you have some neat parallel codes that your institution doesn’t allow you to execute because the cluster is full? Maybe this tutorial is for you!

HPC Cloud 101The tutorial will cover the following topics:

OpenNebulaAs Virtual Clusters deployed by StarCluster have Sun Grid Engine and OpenMPI installed you are more than welcome to bring your own codes and give them a try!
