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: Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud computing (sometimes also called “infrastructure cloud computing”) has recently emerged as a promising outsourcing paradigm: it has been widely embraced commercially and is also beginning to make inroads in scientific communities. Although popular, the understanding of its benefits, challenges, modes of use, and general applicability as an outsourcing paradigm for science are still in its infancy, which gives raise to many myths and misconceptions. Without specific and accurate information it is hard for the scientific communities to understand whether this new paradigm is worthwhile – and if so, how to best develop, leverage, and invest in it.
Our objective in this tutorial is to facilitate the introduction to infrastructure cloud computing to scientific communities and provide accurate and up-to-date information about features that could affect its use in science: to conquer myths, highlight opportunities, and equip the attendees with a better understanding of the relevance of cloud computing to their scientific domain. To this end, we have developed a tutorial that mixes the discussion of various aspects of cloud computing for science, such as performance, privacy and standards, with practical exercises using infrastructure clouds and state-of-the-art tools.
