Algae Biomass Organization Recognizes Six Students With Young Algae Researcher Awards at Algae Biomass Summit In Orlando

First Place Awards for Students at University of Texas at Austin and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC-San Diego

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 10/03/13 -- Six student scientists were presented with the second annual Young Algae Researcher Awards today in Orlando, Florida for their contributions to fields of algae biology and engineering on the final day of the 2013 Algae Biomass Summit, the official conference of the Algae Biomass Organization (ABO).

The awards are presented at the world's largest gathering of algae industry and academic leaders to recognize outstanding research projects by early-career scientists that are finding new ways to use algae to create a range of renewable fuels, fertilizers, plastics and other products.

More than 130 applications for poster presentations were received by the Algae Biomass Organization from the U.S. and other countries, including Australia, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, France, Canada, Taiwan and Malaysia.

"We congratulate each of these young, brilliant and determined scientists," said Mary Rosenthal, Executive Director of the Algae Biomass Organization. "The growing level of interest we see each year from young scientists making contributions to algae biology and engineering gives us high hopes for the future of the algae industry."

The Young Algae Research Awards are presented to winners for research conducted in two subject areas: biology and engineering.

For outstanding research in algae biology awards went to:
1st Prize: Wilson Mendoza, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC- San Diego
2nd Prize: Anil Patel, McGill University
3rd Prize: Naoko Kobayasi, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The runners up for the biology category were Manoj Kamalanathan of Monash University and Ryan Georgianna from the University of California- San Diego.

For outstanding research in algae engineering awards went to:
1st Prize: Thomas Murphy, University of Texas at Austin
2nd Prize: Katerine Napan, Utah State University
3rd Prize: Pavlo Bohutskyi, Johns Hopkins University

Runners up in the engineering category were Alex Lunka from Ohio University and Martin Gross Iowa State University

The Algae Biomass Summit concludes Thursday afternoon. Information on the event, including a full agenda is available at http://algaebiomasssummit.org. Ongoing developments can also be monitored via the Twitter hashtag #ABS13. Next year's Summit will be held in San Diego, California.

The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...

Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes.
