Extra Credit Assignment

Note: Grading of this assignment will only be considered for students who received a C grade on their midterm exam! Work by all other students will NOT be reviewed.

To be emailed to me by 6PM, Monday, December 8, 2014.


You are to write a paper discussing at least two research papers related to grid and cloud computing. Your paper should be approximately 500 words in length and contain references to all work that you discuss in your paper. This includes referencing any quotations that you use. A number of research papers have been provided here (PDF files) as possible sources for you work. You can select other papers if you wish, but they must be cleared with me.


Both the IEEE and ACM websites contain links to their journals and conference proceedings from which journal articles and papers from conference proceedings may be downloaded. They may be accessed from the Pace library website either on or off campus:
