Dec. 12 -- The fourth annual Reconfigurable Systems Summer Institute (RSSI'08) will be held July 7-10, 2008, at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA, www.ncsa.uiuc.edu) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. RSSI’08 -- co-organized by NCSA, OpenFPGA, the NSF Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (CHREC), and the University of Manchester -- will bring together domain scientists and technology developers from industry and academia to discuss new developments on the use of field-programmable gate array technologies for high-performance reconfigurable computing (HPRC).
Submissions are solicited on a wide variety of topics related to HPRC, including, but not limited to:
1. Architecture of HPRC devices and systems.
2. Languages, compilation techniques, and tools for HPRC.
3. Libraries and run-time environments for HPRC.
4. Performance modeling/prediction and benchmarks for HPRC.
5. Algorithms, methodology, and formal methods in application development for HPRC.
6. Applications of HPRC in science and engineering.
7. Trends and the latest developments in the field of HPRC.
8. Multi-platform application development for HPRC and other accelerator technologies.
Authors are invited to submit original contributions electronically, in PDF format, to email@example.com. Two types of submissions are solicited: full-length papers, up 12 pages, and short poster papers, up to four pages. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. Authors of accepted full-length papers will be scheduled to present their work in one of the technical sessions; authors of accepted short papers will be able to present their work during the poster session. The presentations/posters and papers will be made available on the conference's Web site (www.rssi2008.org) after the event as well as on a proceedings CD available to the event participants.
The best papers presented at RSSI’08 will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems (TRETS) journal.
Detailed paper formatting instructions for the CD proceedings and TRETS submissions will soon be available at the conference's Web site (www.rssi2008.org).

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

Supercomputers at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have worked on important computational problems such as collapse of the atomic state, the optimization of chemical catalysts, and now modeling popping bubbles.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/15/2013 | Bull | “50% of HPC users say their largest jobs scale to 120 cores or less.” How about yours? Are your codes ready to take advantage of today’s and tomorrow’s ultra-parallel HPC systems? Download this White Paper by Analysts Intersect360 Research to see what Bull and Intel’s Center for Excellence in Parallel Programming can do for your codes.
In this demonstration of SGI DMF ZeroWatt disk solution, Dr. Eng Lim Goh, SGI CTO, discusses a function of SGI DMF software to reduce costs and power consumption in an exascale (Big Data) storage datacenter.
The Cray CS300-AC cluster supercomputer offers energy efficient, air-cooled design based on modular, industry-standard platforms featuring the latest processor and network technologies and a wide range of datacenter cooling requirements.
