      Fall 2017 NSF CAC Industry Advisory Board Meeting

      The National Science Foundation Cloud and Autonomic Computing Industry / University Cooperative Research Center will host a meeting of its Industry Advisory Board (IAB) Oct. 23-24, 2017 at Texas University.  EVENT DETAILS During this meeting, progress reports will be presented for ongoing projects and the IAB will vote on proposals to continue, advance, complete or add scope to projects carried out by CAC researchers and students at the new and existing sites of the center. The meeting agenda will be posted at this site and distributed to attendees shortly before the meeting is scheduled to begin. All CAC IAB members are encouraged to send one or more representatives, and to check with the site directors at their supported CAC university sites to plan in advance for topics to be discussed and presented at this meeting. Prospective members and non-members interested in learning more about the CAC can request to attend the rest of the IAB sessions, which requires signing a non-disclosure agreement. FAQs Who should attend this event? Industry Advisory Board members from member companies and/or their designated representatives should attend. Note that voting will take place on industry-sponsored projects for the upcoming year for the center. National Science Foundation program officers or their appointed program evaluators are also welcome to attend, along with students and faculty members associated with CAC projects from all university sites.  The CAC meeting is restricted to IAB members, NSF personnel and CAC university faculty or student project participants. Prospective members from companies or organizations interested in the CAC may request to attend the rest of the sessions of the meeting if desired, which requires signing a non-disclosure agreement.  What will happen at the meeting? The primary purpose of the CAC meeting is to review progress on projects and proposals for new research projects to be presented to the Industry Advisory Board. The bulk of the agenda will be devoted to CAC site and project reports and on a prospectus for upcoming work to be conducted by the researchers of the center. The meeting will also include a review of the NSF I/UCRC program, discussion and explanation of CAC by-laws, election of the CAC IAB chair and vice-chair, and other IAB business.
