Final Report from the NSF Workshop on Future Research Infrastructure for the Wireless Edge

Figshare Admin Nsf
Mobile and wireless-based access has transformed the nature of computing, communication and access in the last decade. The number of mobile wireless network-connected devices (i.e. smartphones, wearable computers, Internet of things, etc.) is anticipated to grow exponentially. As these devices become pervasive and the expectations from users continue to grow, researchers and practitioners are experimenting with new mechanisms to deliver at-scale services connecting the distributed cloud directly to end users.

National Science Foundation Final Report on The Second Enhancing Access to the Radio Spectrum Workshop

Figshare Admin Nsf
Wireless systems have proven to be significant productivity enablers in almost every sector of the national economy. Emerging applications such as the Internet of Things, wireless healthcare, and mobile cloud computing are powered by ubiquitous wireless Internet connectivity and fueled by user demands for increased mobility. However, these applications will place greater demands on precious spectrum resources.To ensure the continuation of these benefits to society, new technologies and policies need to be adopted to enable...

Designing Tools and Curricula for Undergraduate Courses in Distributed Systems

Figshare Admin Nsf
Distributed applications have become a core component of the Internet's infrastructure. However, many undergraduate curricula do not offer courses that focus on the design and implementation of distributed systems. As a result, undergraduates are not as prepared as they should be for graduate study or careers in industry. Historically, the problem has often been caused by a lack of resources, since many schools do not have the computing infrastructure needed to experiment with distributed systems....

Additionally, 9 participants from the community were invited to share their experiences and ideas. The workshop was organized to include guest...

Shared Principles Between the Computing and Biological Sciences

NSF Admin Account NSF
The purpose of this workshop was to bring together leading biologists and computational scientists interested in exploring shared principles between computing and biology. These two communities have a shared history of mutual influence where the transfer of concepts and tools has resulted in significant advances in both fields. Typically, the computing community develops techniques useful to the biological sciences such as mathematical models or search algorithms, while the biological sciences community develops hypotheses, which inspire...

Big Data, Big Decisions for Science, Society, and Business: Report on a Research Agenda Setting Workshop

Figshare Admin Nsf
The report from the workshop, "Big Data, Big Decisions for Government, Business and Society," makes a number of astute contributions. There is no need to replicate them in this foreword - they are in the report. What might be missed comes between the lines, where provocative points are made. Big Data means big opinions and big stakes. Those who think Big Data important want to be proven right, those who think Big Data a passing...

NSF Workshop on "Beyond Cognitive Radios"

Figshare Admin Nsf
The concept of "Software Radio" was introduced in the early 1990s. Since then there has been significant research and development activity on software-defined radios (SDR). An important feature of the SDR vision is its ability to integrate legacy systems with newer and more advanced radio and access technologies. The work on SDR led to the realization that opportunistic spectrum utilization can lead to a dramatic improvement in the capacity of practical wireless networks, and the...

A New Age of Computing and the Brain: Report of the CCC Brain Workshop

Figshare Admin Nsf
Throughout its history, humankind has been fascinated by a question that is simple to pose, yet remarkably resistant to resolution: "How does the brain work?" Philosophers have debated the workings of the mind for centuries. Da Vinci made detailed sketches of the brain. By the turn of the century, scientists began to understand some of the brain's basic structure and function. Today, we can image and record brain activity from the neural to whole-brain level....

NSF Workshop on Supporting Scientific Discovery through Norms and Practices for Software and Data Citation and Attribution

Figshare Admin Nsf
Software is as essential as data in the modern practice of science. When scientists share with each other not only research results, but also data and software, it vastly amplifies the reach, relevance, and transparency of science. Yet there are substantial social, systemic, and technological barriers that prevent scientists from sharing data and software. Scientific researchers --- particularly academics --- are embedded in a reputation economy in which tenure, promotion, and acclaim are achieved through...
