National University of Ireland, Galway hosted the first IAIS Workshop on Cloud Computing Research (IWCCR) on Sep 27, 2013. The workshop was supported by the Irish chapter of the Association for Information Systems (IAIS), the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre (Lero) and NUI Galway's Whitaker Institute, and was delivered by the Business Information Systems discipline and Lero at NUI Galway, and the Cloud Computing Services Innovation Centre at Hewlett-Packard.One particular focus was on the Irish national agenda for research on cloud computing, bringing together researchers and practitioners across the island of Ireland. Another focus was on the international research stage for cloud computing, providing a forum for the development of research from international authors.The workshop accepted national and international submissions comprising short (max. 2 pages) structured abstracts representing emerging, novel or partially-completed research on cloud computing, and work with the author(s) to develop the research, create an architecture for its development, and to propose a direction for the research. Authors did not submit full papers, nor did they present their work as per the typical conference setting; rather they sat with small round-table panels comprising academics, industry practitioners and peers to advise on further development of the authors’ research/company practices. As such, this workshop was capacity-building, and suitable to Masters or PhD students at the early stages of some research on cloud computing, who may have wished to gain advice on building their ideas into a dissertation; academics or students who wished to develop an idea into a full research paper; or industry persons working with cloud technologies who wished to influence their company in cloud adoption, implementation or strategy.The IWCCR built upon NUI Galway, Lero and Hewlett-Packard’s strengths in cloud computing. NUI Galway’s Masters degree in Cloud Computing Research began in Sep 2012, and is already helping to shape the national agenda. This new degree provides a dedicated programme of advanced research on high-value, business-focused aspects of cloud computing. In the current year, students from Hewlett-Packard, Cisco, Eircom and elsewhere, are covering a number of important issues for businesses, including a study on business success factors for cloud services, a model for return-on-investment for strategic cloudsourcing, user interaction for mobile cloud business applications, Irish legal considerations for cloud strategies, user benefits of cloud services, in addition to other topics of importance to both large businesses and small SMEs. The university’s research on cloud computing has been published in international outlets, and cloud computing has become a core part of a large SFI-funded research team.
