New Jersey Governor's School of Engineering and Technology Project on "Autonomic Data Center Thermal Management" (July 2011)
The 2011 Governor's School of Engineering and Technology Research Symposium was held on Friday, July 22nd, 2011. Prof. Manish Parashar and Dr. Ivan Rodero from TASSL mentored a group of four of New Jersey's most talented and motivated high school students (Sarah Anne Coe, Eric Principato, Omar Rizwan and Katherine Ye) who developed the project "Autonomic Data Center Thermal Management". This project, which addresses one of the most important problems in the management of modern data centers, is part of the educational activities of the GreenHPC initiative (http://nsfcac.rutgers.edu/GreenHPC) at TASSL and CAC.

Prof. Manish Parashar named co-Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems (TAAS)
The ACM Publications Board has voted to confirm Prof. Manish Parashar as the next co-Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems (TAAS). His co-Editor-in-Chief is Dr. Franco Zambonelli of University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
This is a 3 year appointment. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems is the premiere journal focused on foundational, engineering, and technological aspects of computing systems exhibiting emergent, autonomic and adaptive behavior.
The Applied Software Systems Laboratory (TASSL) is a interdisciplinary research center that complements the NSF Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center (CAC), and is part of Department of Electrical and Computing Engineeing and the School of Engineering at Rutgers University. It overarching missions is to develop conceptual models and implementation frameworks, based on the theoretical foundations of high performance, distributed systems and networking, for solving real-world problems on very large and pervasive distributed systems such as the national hybrid cyberinfrastructure. Designing, developing and deploying advanced software systems is an integral part of the TASSL mission and TASSL researchers have deployed software systems such DataSpace/DART, GrACE/MACE, CometCloud, Accord, Squid, Meteor, etc.
The Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center (CAC), an NSF Research Center funded by the I/UCRC program, combines resources from universities, private companies, and the federal government to conduct fundamental research on making all kinds of computer systems and applications - from humble desktop computers to air traffic control systems - more reliable, more secure, and more efficient.
They provide opportunities for multidisciplinary problem solving. They fosters collaborations with scientists and engineers from applied disciplines and provided students with the opportunity to interact with the researchers from varied disciplines and to collaborate with then to solve real-world problems. Research activities are focused in the broad area of parallel and distributed computing and include programming and runtime systems, autonomic computing, scientific computing and software engineering.
Pioneer Research Team
The mutidiscipinary TASSL/CAC research team is directed by Professor Manish Parashar, and includes postdocs, gradudate students, undergraduate students, visiting researchers, and systems staff. TASSL/CAC also has collaborations with leading research groups in computing and computational sciences and engineering, within and outside the United States.
TASSL/CAC alumni have moved on to leadership postions in academia, industry and resarch laboratories with the US and across the globe, and continue to make significant contributions to the field.
TASSL/CAC is accepting applications for undergraduate students, gradute students, and post-docs in different research areas.
