Dec. 18 --The SSOKU09 Conference, jointly organised by the projects 3S and CHALLENGERS, will set the foundation for an annual European Summit on Software Services and Service Oriented Knowledge Utilities technologies. More than 200 experts, including high level researchers, top industrial and political representatives from the European Commission and from national authorities, have already registered with the conference and will take part in the interesting discussions of both plenary and parallel sessions organized in the two days of the conference.
These sessions offer the audience an interactive platform to discuss research, business, standards and non-technical challenges in the S&S and grid sector. Sessions have been divided by thematic tracks and they will be followed by a wrap-up where all the issues discussed will be summarized and the main results outlined in view of further discussions as a starting point for further developments.
The discussions and the outcome of this event is of primary significance for the endeavour of CHALLENGERS and 3S to maximize their influence towards the support of policy making as well as to pave the way for future synergies and collaboration in the ICT domain.

The deadline for on-line registration is Jan. 7, 2009.
About the organizers
Challengers provides a framework supporting the consultation work of a group of Grid experts from research & business communities, with well established experience and deep knowledge in the area of Grid technologies. The project provide enterprise decisionmakers with foundational and pragmatic insight into the changing technology landscape in view of their business needs, address relevant socio-economic and business drivers, providing an analysis of a holistic, multi-dimensional nature. The focus is on practical experiences of experts, and participation in decision-making that shapes the future of ICT & deep technological knowledge.
3S will support the goals of the IST Priority in developing a Joint European White Paper for R&D and Industry in the Service and Software Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering field. The aim is to push the involvement of the EU to a competitive position worldwide by identifying strategies and technologies that will facilitate future developments and reduce fragmentation. With the creation of ECSS (European Community for Software & Software Services – Architectures, Infrastructures, Engineering) 3S will establish a platform for networking and knowledge transfer between the relevant scientific and industrial communities and for jointly pursuing the interests of the stakeholders in the field of IST.

The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....
