Seminar on Cloud Computing in Life Sciences
About the seminar/panel discussion
This is the first seminar of the new CCLS Bay Area Seminar Series. This seminar, in the format of a panel discussion, will provide insights and explore issues regarding the role of cloud computing in life sciences. The panelists will describe the evolution of their experiences with cloud computing and how they are using the cloud today. This will include criteria considered to select cloud options versus alternatives and cloud computing use cases. This seminar will be useful for practitioners, researchers, software developers, IT architects and information systems managers in life sciences.

When & Where
SFSU Center for Computing for Life Sciences
The Center for Computing in Life Sciences (CCLS) is part of a University-wide strategic thrust towards interdisciplinary research and education. It addresses the emerging trend of integration of life sciences and computational and mathematical sciences. It involves faculty, researchers, and students from the SFSU departments of Biology, Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics. The broad research program of the center emphasizes investigations in topics varying from Bioinformatics and Computational Drug Discovery to complex data visualization and development of new paradigms for data modeling, user interfaces and web-engineering in contexts involving life sciences. The CCLS provides an environment for faculty to cooperate, for students to work on multidisciplinary projects including those involving culmination degrees and for collaboration with industrial and academic partners. The center also hosts a number of external advisors and collaborators.
