    44Description:
     5        The BCCD was created to facilitate the instruction of parallel computing aspects and paradigms. One of the difficulties instructors face is a lack of dedicated resources to explore distributed computing aspects or lack of time to preconfigure and test the supporting environment. The BCCD addresses this problem by providing a non-destructive way to run a fully-fledged parallel computing environment on just about any workstation-class system. For more permanent environments, the BCCD can also be installed ("liberated") onto a host disk, thereby creating a more customary cluster resource.

    1213Why is your organization applying to participate in GSoC 2011? What do you hope to gain by participating?
    13 
     14  Looking through the 2010 list of participating organizations, there are few, if any organizations geared towards the intersection of computational science, cluster computing, parallel programming and teaching these topics. The BCCD can help fill this gap by providing projects in each of these areas. Applying--and subsequently participating--in GSoC can afford us opportunities to increase our developer pool and work towards strengthening the community around the tools and curricula for computational science, cluster computing, and parallel programming. As such, any student accepted into the project will provide a pivotal role in a growing community.

    3334Does your organization have an application template you would like to see students use? If so, please provide it now. Please note that it is a very good idea to ask students to provide you with their contact information as part of your template. Their contact details will not be shared with you automatically via the GSoC 2011 site.
