SALT LAKE CITY, March 1 -- Submissions are now being accepted for the technical program for SC12, the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis. SC12 will take place Nov. 10 – 16, 2012, and is expected to bring as many as 11,000 attendees from academia, industry and government to the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City.
Abstracts for technical papers and ACM Gordon Bell Prize nominations are due Friday, April 20. Full final papers and ACM Gordon Bell Prize nominations are due Friday, April 27, as are submissions for panels, tutorials and workshops. Abstracts for the SCinet Research Sandbox are also due Friday, April 27. The State of the Practice track introduced in SC11 is now incorporated as an area under technical papers at SC12 and has the same submission deadlines as technical papers. Submissions for all Technical Program areas is via https://submissions.supercomputing.org/
This year's conference will offer peer-reviewed papers covering a broad spectrum of technical research fields as well as panel discussions with leading researchers and industry leaders, posters showcasing research results from around the world, tutorials, workshops and a doctoral showcase. All technical papers, tutorials, workshops, and posters undergo a rigorous, anonymous peer review by hundreds of internationally recognized experts resulting in a paper acceptance rate of 20 to 25 percent.
"The SC conference is clearly the place where leading researchers in the field want to present their results. The increase in the number of Technical Program submissions in recent years has been incredible.,” said SC12 General Chair Jeffrey Hollingsworth, professor of computer science at the University of Maryland. “We invite submissions that address world-class research and development. If it’s an HPC result, we hope you will submit it to SC12.We fully expect the community to once again make the job of selecting the best submissions a difficult but rewarding task.”

SC12, sponsored by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) and the IEEE Computer Society, offers a complete technical education program and exhibition to showcase the many ways high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis lead to advances in scientific discovery, research, education and commerce. This premier international conference includes a globally attended technical program, workshops, tutorials, a world class exhibit area, demonstrations and opportunities for hands-on learning.
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.

Supercomputers at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have worked on important computational problems such as collapse of the atomic state, the optimization of chemical catalysts, and now modeling popping bubbles.
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.
