Technical papers, leadership activities and a research showcase round out active presence at leading high-performance computing conference
ATLANTA, Nov. 11 -- The Georgia Institute of Technology, an emerging leader in high-performance computing research and education, will be showcasing scientific research at the technical edge at next week's SC09, the international conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis scheduled for Nov. 14-20, 2009, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. An SC09 best paper nomination for work in computational biology, a new GPU based experimental HPC system in the works, and expert presence across a range of hardware, software and application domains are just some of the ways Georgia Tech will feature multidisciplinary, cross-industry research efforts focusing on computational scientific discovery and sustainable high-performance computing (HPC).
At Georgia Tech, we have a history of tackling new frontiers with the realities of future needs in mind," said Dr. Mark Allen, senior vice provost for Research and Innovation at Georgia Tech. "As we look to high-performance computing to drive advanced breakthroughs in science, health, energy and other industries, true leaders in this field will emerge only by rethinking current systems and developing new computational methods that address today's challenges with massive data processing and energy-efficiency. Georgia Tech welcomes SC09 attendees to visit our booth, meet our researchers, and observe our work to expand the capabilities of the computational science community."
The papers and presentations outlined below will feature leading-edge Georgia Tech research, including the recently announced NSF Track 2 award, new research grants under the NSF Industry & University Cooperative Research program, and numerous NSF PetaApps awards.
Technical Papers/Poster Sessions/Panels/Birds-of-a-Feather
Technical papers, panels, poster sessions and Birds-of-a-Feather discussions featuring researchers from Georgia Tech include (activities held at the Oregon Convention Center unless otherwise noted):
Booth Events and Activities
Georgia Tech researchers and staff will be on hand at Booth 132 to demonstrate and discuss the latest innovations in high-performance computing research. The Georgia Tech research display will feature updates on current research projects, video conversations with Georgia Tech experts in high performance computing, and an interactive display unlike any other -- a virtual field trip to the world's largest aquarium, the Georgia Aquarium. Utilizing a high bandwidth (1Gbps) channel connecting the Aquarium to the SC09 show floor, visitors to the Georgia Tech booth will be able to interact with researchers, fish and other marine creatures live through this one-of-a-kind tradeshow experience.
