This course is a tour through various research topics in distributed data-intensive computing, covering topics in cluster computing, grid computing, supercomputing, and cloud computing. We will explore solutions and learn design principles for building large network-based computational systems to support data intensive computing. This course is geared for junior/senior level undergraduates and graduate students in computer science. Prerequsites: CS450; however, one or more of the following courses would be recommended: 451, CS546, CS550, CS552, CS553, or CS570. 

We will be using Piazza to facilitate course discussions, at (it has not been setup yet, more instructions will follow).
