C. Titus Brown and Dirk Colby will be presenting and leading the discussion. Dr. Brown will show some examples of cloud computing workflows and how he uses them for genomics analyses. Discussion of further topics of interest could include:
• What are cloud computing resources?
• How are cloud resources typically used?
• Cost and pricing
• Performance and availability
• Commercial resources (Amazon EC2, Azure, Rackspace)
• Non-commercial resources (iPlant/Atmosphere, XSEDE, the MSU HPCC)
• Experiences and best practices of MSU researchers currently using cloud computing

Sustainable Pathways: Learning From the Past and Shaping the Future

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 2:30pm

The effects of climate change on fish habitat will be scale-and system-dependent. Our work demonstrates how climate change affects fish habitat nationwide, and stream flow, water temperature, and coldwater lakes in the Upper Midwest. Projected changes in fish habitat varied across ecoregions nationally. The future regional climate will likely alter hydrologic and thermal regimes suitable to the fish species in that region. We were able to integrate these regional differences by using a consistent assessment framework to show habitat changes across regions for the conterminous U.S.

The competition for 2014-15 IIE Fulbrights opens on May 1 with a mid-October deadline. We are also anticipating a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Abroad competition to be announced in May or June with a short deadline (probably 30 days). This information session will be relevant to grad students planning an international component to their theses or dissertations. The IIE Fulbright may be used for master’s thesis research, pre-dissertation research or for dissertation research.

Landscape Dynamics Along Environmental Gradients

The U.S. Regional Association of the International Association for Landscape Ecology (US-IALE) will hold its 2013 Annual Symposium in Austin, Texas for the first time.

The meeting will attract educators and practitioners in the fields of geology, ecology, biology, geography, and landscape preservation and design dedicated to preserving and protecting our natural resources. Highlights will include intensive workshops, plenary sessions, symposia, field trips, oral presentations and posters.
