Dear All

Departmental Colloquium
Prof. Chunming Rong
Center of IP-based Services Innovation (CIPSI)
University of Stavanger

“Cloud” is a common metaphor for an Internet-accessible infrastructure 
(e.g. data storage and computing hardware) which is hidden from users. 
Cloud Computing makes data truly mobile, allowing a user to simply 
access a chosen cloud with any Internet-accessible device. In Cloud 
Computing, IT-related capabilities are provided as services, accessible 
without requiring detailed knowledge of the underlying technology. Thus, 
many mature technologies are used as components in Cloud Computing, but 
still there are many unresolved and open problems. The Cloud Computing 
Association aims to bring together researchers who work on cloud 
computing and related technologies. This presentation will give an 
overview of cloud computing and discuss several contemporary applications.

About the Speaker: Prof. Chunming Rong received his Ph.D. degree in 
Computer Science from the University of Bergen in Norway in 1998. He is 
a professor and director of the Center of IP-based Services Development 
and Innovation (CIPSI) at the University of Stavanger. Currently, he is 
a visiting professor at Stanford University. Between 2005 and 2009, he 
also served as an adjunct professor at the University of Oslo. His 
research interests include security and privacy, scalable and 
data-intensive computing, and mobile computing. He is founder and 
chairman of the Cloud Computing Association (CloudCom) and its 
associated conference and workshop series.
