cloudThe National Science Foundation‘s Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering is calling on researchers to utilize technology prototypes developed under the NSFFutureCloud program in future studies with NSF.

CISE Assistant Director James Kurose said in a “Dear Colleague” letter posted May 21 that researchers can use the experimental Chameleon and CloudLab cloud architectures to support NSF programs on a variety of cloud computing research topics.

Chameleon is currently colocated at the University of Chicago and the University of Texas at Austin, while CloudLab is based in Clemson University, University of Utah and University of Wisconsin.

Supported research applications include network design, cloud energy efficiency, geo-distributed data storage, cloud radio access networks, cloud security, mobile cloud systems and high-throughput computing, among others.
