Ellie Mackay, an EVO researcher, reports on the Eden Demonstration Test Catchment (DTC) blog of joint work between the EVO and the EdenDTC. She describes how cloud-based tools being developed by EVO will enable data streams from the EdenDTC to be captured, visualised and used in environmental models, for example, to predict the response to potential flooding events.
Cloud@ECOOP was an one-day workshopwhere different topics about cloud computing were introduced. As this industry event was held in conjunction with the ECOOP conference, the presenters seemed to focus (with varying degrees) on the relationship between cloud computing and research. Yahia talked about the adoption of cloud computing in research circles: examples, challenges and impact.
