2012 - The Cloud, Accessibility, and the Future

The 2012 IT-RERC State of the Science: The Cloud, Accessibility and the Future was held during September 20-21, 2012, via web conference.  Prior to the workshop, participants were asked to view several live or archived presentations.  These presentations have been edited and captioned, and are available by clicking on the image next to each presenter's name and presentation title. 

We have also put together presentation notes and presenter biographies, which can be accessed through the links in the following table.
