share ideas, and advance knowledge and understanding of cloud computing.
Developers, decision makers, end users, and vendors from MA, CT, VT, and surrounding states are invited to
participate: attend, present, and/or sponsor. CloudCamp Western Massachusetts will provide a central point for
bringing together local academia and businesses. The ICT Center will stream live video of the event to other

“The ICT Center is excited about hosting CloudCamp here in Western Massachusetts and is looking forward to
streaming the event out to our colleges and faculty across the United States.” - Gordon Snyder, Director of the
National Center for Information and Communications Technologies
“Over the last two years, cloud computing technologies, specifically Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), have
enabled us to reduce deployment cycles from months to hours. Our customers can now bring their web applications
to the market at a fraction of the time, scale systems up and down in response to traffic demands, and continue to
improve their products based on immediate user response. We are glad to be one of the organizers and sponsors of
CloudCamp. ” - Natasha Goncharova of TNR Global.
