Trying to figure this whole cloud computing thing out? Join the Military Libraries Group of DC/SLA for this informative program with speaker, Dr. Robert Bohn, Reference Architecture Lead for the NIST Cloud Computing Program, and learn more about what cloud computing is all about, where it is now, and where it is going. It's also a great opportunity to do some networking while enjoying light refreshments.
Thanks to IEEE for their sponsorship of this program and Covington & Burling for providing the space for this session.
Robert Bohn, of the Applied and Computational Sciences Division in NIST/ITL, serves as the Reference Architecture Lead for the NIST Cloud Computing Program. In this role, he works with industrial, academic and other government stakeholders to develop a high‐level vendor neutral reference architecture and taxonomy under the NIST Strategy for Developing a US Government Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap. This architecture will be used as a frame of reference to facilitate communication, illustrate and understand how clouds services and components fit together.
Bob was a member of the National Coordination Office of the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) and served as the program as the Technical Coordinator for the High End Computing Interagency Working Group (HEC‐IWG) and Human‐Computer Interaction and Information Management Coordinating Group (HCI&IM CG) and composed entries in the President’s Annual NITRD Budget Supplements.
He was a recipient of a National Science Foundation fellowship at NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, CA, received Ph.D. and Master of Science degrees in Physical Chemistry from the University of Virginia, a Master’s Certificate in Project Management from George Washington University School of Business and Public Management, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Illinois.
