Thanks to industry sponsorship, the 2014 IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E), to be held on March 10-14 at BU, is offering a limited number of complimentary registrations for local students to attend the conference. The complimentary registration will allow a student to attend all conference sessions (including the tutorials, workshops, the technical program, and the cloud summit) and coffee breaks, but not the reception, lunches or banquet. If you are interested, please let Ellen Grady <grady at bu.edu> (we are also looking for a few students to help with logistics and registration during the conference).

Due to limited availability, the complimentary registrations will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis.
