Dr. Dennis Gannon is Director of Cloud Research Engagements in the Technology Policy Group at Microsoft. As part of that effort he has provided cloud resource to 83 research projects in 13 countries in collaboration with the US National Science Foundation, the European Commission, the Japanese National Informatics Institute, the national laboratories CSIRO, NICTA and ANU in Australia, the Taiwan National Science Council and the National Academy of Science in China.
Prior to coming to Microsoft, Dr. Gannon was a professor and chairman of Computer Science at Indiana University and the Science Director for the Indiana Pervasive Technology Labs. Dr. Gannon's research interests include cloud computing, large-scale cyberinfrastructure, distributed computing, computer networks, parallel programming and computational science. He led several software projects for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Department of Energy related to programming massively parallel systems. He has worked extensively with NSF on interdisciplinary science projects.
Architects and engineers all over the world are inventing new ways to reduce the time, cost, and risk of constructing energy-efficient, high-performance buildings. One of the key technical challenges these eco-pioneers face is the high cost of the data-intensive analysis they require to design these “green” buildings. Using cloud computing, an Italian start-up has now a new way to analyze data...
Microsoft has been closely involved in the incubation and activity of SIENA and its preceding projects. As the EC funded Venus-C project and our other cloud research engagement collaborations around the world approach the end of their second year, we have taken stock of the lessons we have learned and we chose to share our most interesting findings with the Cloudscape community.
