     11The Cloud session was seeded with eight short talks to US and EU cloud
     12research projects, capturing a range of cloud system research issues.
     13The projects involved six cloud research platforms - NSF
     14Clouds (Chameleon and !CloudLab), Multi-Clouds, the UW-Madison city-scale
     15heterogeneous wireless cloud, GEANT GTS, and Grid5000.  The topics
     16spanned cloud programmability, scheduling, federation, applications, and
     17the emerging wired and wireless edge clouds. A clear common theme of the
     18discussion was about the reality of multiple co-existing clouds, the
     19approach to harness and expose a new paradigm across diverse and
     20potentially federated clouds, and the new needs of addressing software
     21design, execution, and management of complex applications for Internet
     22users as well as Internet of Things devices.
     24Discussions amidst these presentation conveyed a converging consensus of
     25the future cloud paradigm, with deeply programmable computing,
     26networking, and storage elements across Internet in both data
     27centers and near the edge. It is agreed that getting the multiple cloud
     28platforms to interface is readily feasible at the data plane; at the
     29same time, multiple avenues exist to enable control plane federation via
     30software and automation.  The eight projects alone have already involved
     31federated infrastructure across US, EU, South America, and Asia.
     32Federation based on commonly agreed API as well as third-party
     33connectors (mapping resource requests from one API to another) have been
     34explored.  The community involved in these efforts sees a lot of
     35opportunity for further orchestrated efforts to enable a global
     36environment to facilitate production as well as research use of it.
