A Collaborative Community of Leaders: Cloud Computing in Education
ICA CON 2016
ICA CON 2016, the 4th International IBM Cloud Academy Conference, will provide an exciting opportunity for educators and researchers to share ideas and experiences in cloud computing. The conference is open to both K-12 and higher education institutions already implementing cloud technologies and services, or considering doing so.
The program will be derived from the refereed review of proposals, presently envisioned to include invited keynotes, technical papers, position papers, workshops and a technology showcase. The technical papers portion of the conference program will feature experience reports and original research papers. The technology showcase will feature poster presentations and demonstrations on cloud computing research or implementations in progress. Selected papers from conference proceedings will be published as a special edition of the International Journal of Cloud Computing (IJCC).
This event will feature:
- A keynote by Mac Devine, VP & CTO, Advanced Innovation, IBM Cloud Division, which is open to all on campus at no charge. He will be addressing the topic of collaborations with IBM.
- A hands-on workshop on BlueMix and Watson, two of the most successful IBM service platforms, to which IBM also gives free accounts to academics who want to use these services for teaching and/or research.
