June 8, 2011 -- SC11, the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, is seeking submissions for the Disruptive Technologies (DT) track in the technical program. As part of the SC conference series since 2006, DT seeks to examine new architectures and technologies that will significantly impact the high performance computing, networking, storage and data analysis ecosystem throughout the next five to 15 years, but have not yet emerged in current systems.
The SC11 Disruptive Technologies track is soliciting proposals with specific focus on those that can address the SC11 “Data Intensive Science” thrust area. Proposals can involve a demonstration or presentation of early results, or consist of a position paper to be presented in a panel format and exhibit showcase.
“Disruptive technologies represent drastic innovations in current practices such that they have the potential to completely transform the HPC field as it currently exists — ultimately overtaking the leading technologies in the marketplace,” said Martin Swany, co-chair of Disruptive Technologies and Associate Professor at the University of Delaware. “SC continues to be the leading forum for showcasing not only the leading edge technologies in use today but for exploring these game-changing innovations that hold the promise of completely transforming the way we research and do business.”
Unique in 2011, submissions to the Disruptive Technologies program also can demonstrate their research as part of the SCinet Research Sandbox (SRS). The SRS is designed to allow researchers to experimentally test and demonstrate their ideas on innovative network architectures, applications and protocols in the unique live environment of the SCinet network. This year, the SRS will provide researchers with access to over 100 Gigabits per second of capacity and will feature for the first time a 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps), multi-vendor OpenFlow network testbed connected from the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle to potentially several national research networks to provide wide area OpenFlow capabilities.
“The ability to ‘program the network’ through technologies like OpenFlow stands to be one of the most disruptive innovations in high performance computing, an arena that depends on, and pushes, the capabilities of network infrastructure. Virtualization and customization of the network is missing piece of the cloud computing ecosystem, and this stands to finally make it viable for HPC. For this reason, we have coupled Disruptive Technologies with the SRS this year to allow researchers the unique ability to demonstrate the possibilities of this disruptive innovation in HPC,” said Swany, also co-chair of the SRS.
Disruptive Technologies proposals can be submitted via the SC11 submissions Web site, http://submissions.supercomputing.org. Please indicate where noted if you would like to also be considered for participation in the SCinet Research Sandbox.
Submissions to Disruptive Technologies Program due July 22, 2011

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.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
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.
