MANNHEIM, Germany, July 18 -- The third ISC Cloud Conference will bring into focus two of the biggest topics in high performance computing – the potential of clouds to meet the demand for HPC and how best to deal with Big Data and HPC. Organized by the same team behind the International Supercomputing Conference, ISC Cloud’12 will be held Monday and Tuesday, September 24-25, in Mannheim.
Online registration is now open for ISC Cloud’12 and there are two ways to save. General advance registration, at a savings of 50 Euros, is open through Saturday, Sept. 15. If you attended ISC’12 and purchased a full-conference passport, you are entitled to 25 percent off the ISC Cloud’12 pass. To register for ISC Cloud’12, please use the code cloud4isc-2012.
The ISC Cloud’12 preliminary program is now online. Around 30 leading experts from academia, research and industry will present their experience and perspectives on HPC and Big Data to an expected 200 attendees. The discussions will include topics such as how to bring massive amounts of data nearer to the computing resources, as well as moving the resource to where the data is generated.
“Following the recommendations of last years’ participants, this year we have invited expert speakers with real end-user, hands-on experiences reporting on advanced topics, thus providing all attendees with both insight and practical details,” said ISC Cloud General Chair Wolfgang Gentzsch. “What we do best is to unite the academic and industrial communities in a collegial atmosphere and for a common benefit.”
The key topics of this year’s conference are:
Industrial Clouds - Best Practices
Research Clouds - User Experiences
Engineering Clouds - Commercial Software in the Cloud
Big Data Cloud Computing
Panel: HPC Cloud Challenges
Vendor Panel with our Conference Sponsors
This year’s conference will be held at the Dorint Kongresshotel situated in the heart of Mannheim and special conference rates have been arranged. To take advantage of these rates and reserve your room, visit the hotel website and use the code ISC Cloud.
ISC Cloud Sponsors and Tabletop Exhibition
This year, ISC Cloud will be hosting a tabletop exhibition alongside the conference program. There are few sponsorship opportunities remaining, which include a table in the exhibition. For more information, please contact Ms. Anna Schachoff at email@example.com or (mobile) +49 (0)163 3 73 93 58.

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.
