BURLINGAME, Calif., March 10 -- The 2009 High-Performance Computing Adoption Conference will expose attendees to information critical to strategic business and technical efforts impacted by high-performance computing adoption. The conference, sponsored by RTI International, will be held May 11-13 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel. For registration and other information about the HPC Adoption '09 conference, visit http://2009.hpcadoption.org.
The three-day event will define the challenges of high-performance adoption and provide solutions for scaling the innovation curve. The program will feature policy and market experts as well as thought leaders from both industry and academia who will offer strategic insights into roadmaps for success in adopting high-performance computing.
"High-performance computing is changing the game," said conference director, Stephen Baker of RTI. "From fundamental research to advanced modeling and simulation, high-performance computing is invigorating productivity and innovation throughout industry and science. In an increasingly competitive global economy, the question is no longer can organizations afford to adopt high performance computing, but rather can they afford not to?"
The conference will include topics from implementation challenges and barriers to adoption, to public policy factors and market considerations. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage leading minds shaping the high-performance computing ecosystem and understand how strategic allocation of critical national resources will fuel domestic competitiveness in the high-performance computing revolution.
High-performance computing adoption experts -- Cynthia McIntyre, Council on Competitiveness; Austars Schnore, GE Global Research; Tom Lange, Procter and Gamble; and Merle Giles, National Center for Supercomputing Applications -- will lead a half-day preconference symposium offering companies and organizations the opportunity to make dramatic improvements in efficiency and competitiveness.
Keynote speakers at High-Performance Computing Adoption '09 will examine the broad implications of high-performance computing:
Additional sessions at the conference will examine a variety of topics including:

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.
