could use cloud computing in our common life (any place and any time),
you will learn

current new technology and issues

on cloud computing

current works in GSU and IBM
, and some students could choose it as
their

research fie
ld

in the future
.

This is very hot
and useful

for
you
.

Prerequisites:



Basic information on computer networks



Basic technology on computer science



Course Organization:

Finish the assigned assig
nments, attend the lectures

Academic Honesty:

No tolerance on plagiarism! Please review the university policy on ch
eating
as described at
http://www2.gsu.edu/~wwwfhb/sec409.html

Students must work individually on quizzes and exams without any assistance
from persons or
stuffs
. It is the student's responsibility t
o protect work
from copying. No outside help is permitted.

Anyone found cheating

and/or
copying (in the opinion of the instructor) will receive an automatic F for
that

assignment or exam. This goes for the person who copies as well as
the person who

allows

their work to be copied. Also, the Dean of Students
office will be informed. If a book or paper is used, it must be referenced
and not copied. Plagiarized work is determined solely by the professor and
is graded solely at the professor's discretion.

Misc.

Items:



Absolutely no lame excuses please
, such as "I have to go home early, allow me to take the
test on Apr 1", or "I had a fight with my girlfriend, which
affects

my performance". Even
when they are true, they are still lame.



The course syllabus provid
es a general plan for the course; deviations may be necessary.



Please advise the instructor if you have a documented disability that needs to be
accommodated.



No extra work in the next semester given to improve your grade.
Any queries about the
grades sh
ould be brought to the attention of the instructor within a week after the graded
students’ works have been returned to the class

class is strictly prohibited and g
rounds for dismissal.
