BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Nov. 12 -- How will emerging cloud technologies enhance scientific and medical research in the coming decades? How can meteorological scientists use digital data to visualize and predict future weather patterns? How will chemists, physicists, astronomers and other scientists gain easier access to the powerful new supercomputing resources increasingly required in research?
The "Look to the Future" display and workshops, hosted by the Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI) at Indiana University, will explore these and other questions at this year's Supercomputing Conference (SC09), taking place in Portland, Ore., Nov. 14-19. SC is the largest event of its kind in the United States, bringing together the top colleges and universities, companies, and organizations within the field of supercomputing.
"This is truly an exceptional year for IU supercomputing," said Craig Stewart, executive director of PTI and associate dean of Research Technologies. "This month, IU unveiled a new state-of-the-art Data Center, which will house the core of the FutureGrid testbed, funded recently by a collaborative award from the National Science Foundation. This joins IU's ongoing projects in areas such as science gateways and data visualization -- all of which will be highlighted in our SC09 display."
The IU booth includes an "Innovation Theatre" where a special musical performance and four mini-workshops will take place during the course of the week-long conference. These events are free to registered conference attendees and do not require pre-registration, though seating is limited.
At the SC09 opening gala, IUPUI Professor of Music Scott Deal will present "Telematic Explorations," original telematic work synthesizing live music, dance, drama, and visual arts with Internet-based interactive processes and performance content. The presentation takes place Monday, Nov. 16, 7-9 p.m.
The schedule for the mini-workshops is as follows:
Visitors to the IU exhibit can also engage in several ongoing interactive demonstrations, including:

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....

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.
