SciCloud: Scientific Cloud annual conference
Mind the Byte
The first edition of “SciCloud: Scientific Cloud Annual Conference”, organized by Mind the Byte in collaboration with Amazon Web Services and the Parc Científic de Barcelona (PCB)will be held on June 12th in the PCB. The SciCloud conference, to be held annually, will bring together experts from different areas of cloud services and science to discover and exchange ideas and breakthroughs in this field.
 
The inaugural session will be given by Biocat CEO Dr. Montserrat Vendrell and Dr. Jesús Purroy, Science and Technology Services Technical Director of the Parc Científic de Barcelona. Other speakers include Dr. Jordi Villà-Freixa, Director of the Polytechnic School at the University of Vic; Hakan Gurel, Solution architect at Amazon Web Services; Dr. Alfons Nonell-Canals, CEO of Mind the Byte; and Oscar Huertas, Director of Technology at SOM Biotech.

The use of computational tools in research is becoming essential, covering a wide range of topics. However, using these techniques is usually linked to investment costs and maintenance for both software and hardware. The Cloud as infrastructure and a SaaS (Software as a Service) as software solution can help us rationalize the most the use of computational techniques usages, scaling your resources depending on your demand and allowing you to be ready for possible spikes in work.

Attendance at the conference is free, however, as the number of places to assist is limited, it is necessary to register.
