JSC at SC11 in Seattle
SC11, the premier international exhibition and conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis, will take place in Seattle, Washington, USA, from 12 to 18 November 2011. JSC will present its wide-ranging supercomputing activities at booth #535. There, JSC staff will present and demonstrate scientific simulations on supercomputers and on the supercomputing tools UNICORE, LLView and Scalasca developed in-house. JSC staff will present protein folding on the Knights Ferry processor at the Intel booth (#2121) and on Grid Interoperability at the EMI (#763) and XSEDE (#5415) booths. JSC staff will also be continuously on hand at the PRACE booth (#5001).
As part of the conference programme, JSC staff will give tutorials on "Supporting Code Development on Extreme-scale Computer Systems" and on "Practical Hybrid Parallel Application Performance Engineering", present posters, and will participate in numerous special interest group sessions ("Bird-of-a-Feather", BoF). In particular, JSC is organizing the BoF session on "Community-Oriented Scientific Support Structures for HPC" and co-organizing the sessions on "European Exascale Research", on "The European HPC Infrastructure PRACE", and on the HPC monitoring and performance analysis projects "HOPSA" and "Score-P".
