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.

iCode/CometCloud wins the 2011 IEEE SCALE Challenge (May 2011)
A multi-institutional team consisting of The Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center (Rutgers University), IBM T.J. Watson Research Center and Center for Subsurface Modeling (The University of Texas at Austin) was awarded first place in the IEEE SCALE 2011 Challenge for their demonstration titled “A Scalable Ensemble-based Oil-Reservoir Simulations using Blue Gene/P-as-a-Service”. The project team was led by Professor Manish Parashar and consisted of Moustafa AbdelBaky and Hyunjoo Kim (CAC, Rutgers Univ.), Kirk Jordan, Hani Jamjoom, Vipin Sachdeva, Zon-Yin Shae and James Sexton (IBM T.J. Watson Research Center), and Gergina Pencheva, Reza Tavakoli, and Mary F. Wheeler (CSM, UT Austin).

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.
Moustafa Abdelbaky has be awarded the IBM Ph.D. fellowship (February 2011)
Congratulations to Moustafa AbdelBaky for being awarded the
prestigious and highly competitive IBM Ph.D. fellowship. He was among
a small set of 2011 awardees selected from several hundred nominations
worldwide. Moustafa is pursuing his Ph.D. under the guidance of
Professor Manish Parashar and is a member of the Center for Autonomic
Computing and the Applied Software Systems Laboratory. His research is
focused on developing an infrastructure to provide HPC as-a-service
(HPC Clouds) for HPC applications such as oil reservoir management and
CO2 sequestration. He recently presented a poster and demo titled
"Cloudy with a Chance of Supercomputing: A Framework for Enabling
Supercomputing Resources as HPC Clouds", at SC10 International
Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and
Analysis, in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, November, 2010.
