The University of New Orleans Department of Computer Science and the Greater New Orleans Center for Information Assurance (GNOCIA) recently received two task orders from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) totaling $684,925. The orders are to study Cloud Computing as an Environment ($207,178) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) as a Service ($477,747). The work is being conducted in association with a local business partner, Geocent, and continues the university’s support of the shared services center in the UNO Research and Technology Park. The objective of the Cloud Computing project is to setup and configure a working cloud infrastructure. The setup of the cloud infrastructure is intended to support the research of a service delivery model and demonstrate the capabilities of moving programs into a cloud environment. Once the cloud computing project has been demonstrated the government will transition to a production environment where clients using the share-services facility can access their software programs from anywhere in a secure, cloud computing environment. The goal of the Service Oriented Architecture project is to design a Platform as a Service (PaaS) which can provide remote clients with a complete IT infrastructure as a set of services which are capable of running their applications over the Internet. Service Oriented Architecture will enable hosting of clients’ applications without requiring the client to change the ownership of their data or their business processes. This model will yield significant cost savings on hardware and software for the client. UNO Vice Chancellor for Research Dr. Scott Whittenburg is the project director. Investigators are Drs. Roussev, Tu, Richard III and Abdelguerfi.

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) is soliciting applications from interested undergraduate students and faculty mentors at all Louisiana universities and colleges. UROP, established in 1992 by the Louisiana Sea Grant (LSG) College Program, offers the Louisiana undergraduate community funding to support hands-on research experience in marine and coastal resource issues. Previously funded projects have dealt with topics such as coastal ecology, fisheries, aquaculture, environmental engineering, and genetics. A maximum of ten projects will be funded for the period March 2012 to December 2012; each will receive $1500-2500 to cover student wages, supplies, and necessary travel. Both student wages and academic credit may be earned concurrently if the policies of your institution allow this practice. Full-time undergraduate students at all Louisiana colleges and universities are eligible. A written final report of research accomplishments and findings is required. Students are also encouraged both to present their findings at regional, national and international conferences and to publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Applications will be accepted until 16 December 2011. An Application Form and complete information can be found at the UROP website (click following link) Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)
