 US NIST Use Case and Testbed Projects  Date: July 10, 2015
Time: 4:00 PM
 Alan Sill  Overview of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) use case development, definition and testing program for the Standards Acceleration to Jumpstart Adoption of Cloud Computing (SAJACC) working group, including plans to extend the standards and use case testing activities of this group using our NSF CAC testbed projects on the US NSF Chameleon, Cloudlab and XSEDE resources. This talk was given at the Cloud Computing Forum and Workshop VIII conference at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Video is available for this talk. Link 
 NSF Cloud Interoperability Testbed Projects  Date: March 09, 2015
Time: 1:00 PM
 Alan Sill  Overview of testbed activities on the US NSF Chameleon, Cloudlab and XSEDE resources. The NSF CAC will use its industry/university connections to promote and foster open cloud standards and interoperability testbeds using internal and external resources. Specific projects have been proposed and approved on two new NSF computer-science-oriented cloud "testbed as a service" resources, Chameleon and CloudLab, which have recently been funded to replace the FutureGrid project. This talk was given at the Cloudscape VII conference in Brussels, Belgium with the title "How the NSF is enabling a new future for Cloud computing." Link
