Two more comments about the posters. First, please send me your poster
title by the end of the day today, if you haven't already.

Second (and perhaps most importantly), I forgot to explain the
context/purpose of the poster session. In addition to wanting to learn
about your research, the panelists will probably ask you about your work's
relationship to the overall MACS project: why your work benefits/is
benefited by the MACS project. As such, please make sure to highlight any
of the following characteristics that apply to your work:

- Collaboration across disciplines, universities, or involving multiple
MACS faculty <http://www.bu.edu/macs/people/> and/or their students.
- Transition of research concepts into practice, especially on the MOC or
other cloud environments.
- Composability of your work with other efforts, especially those at
different layers of the computing stack.
