When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

ABSTRACT: We address the VM provisioning and allocation problem in clouds by designing
a novel combinatorial auction-based provisioning and allocation mechanism that
produces an efficient allocation of resources yielding high profits for the cloud provider.
The proposed mechanism, called CA-PROVISION, treats the set of available
computing resource as `liquid' resources that can be
configured into different numbers and types of VM instances depending on the
requests of the users. The mechanism provisions and allocates VM instances
based on the users' valuations and the
reserve prices determined by the operating cost of the resources.
We evaluate our mechanism by performing extensive simulation experiments
using traces of real workload from Parallel Workload Archive.
The results show that CA-PROVISION effectively captures the market demand,
provisions the computing resources to match the demand, and generates high
revenue for the cloud provider.
We plan to prepare a 4'X3' poster for presentation.
