San Diego, CA — Registration is now open for SC2000, the annual conference of high performance networking and computing. This year’s conference will convene in Dallas, Texas, for seven days of technical programs, technological demonstrations and exhibits, and educational outreach.
The conference will be held Nov. 4-10 in the Dallas Convention Center. SC2000 is sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society and the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture.
Attendees who register in advance benefit from lower fees and may pick up their conference materials at the Dallas Convention Center beginning Saturday, Nov. 4, 2000. On-line registration information can be found at http://www.sc2000.org/register/index.htm . For questions regarding registration, please contact [email protected]
In addition to the conference’s program of technical presentations and technology displays, two features new to SC conferences will highlight this year’s meeting.
The first, called Venture Village, will showcase a collection of entrepreneurial information technology companies, all of which are creating new products to build the infrastructure of tomorrow. The Venture Village will be a specifically designated area located strategically on the main exhibit floor as a complement to the many other vendor and research displays there.
The second innovative thrust is eSCape 2000, demonstrating the ability to “escape” from today’s technological boundaries and to log in and compute anywhere. This feature will showcase various technologies now being developed by the world’s leading research organizations in high-performance computing and networking. For example, a person using a handheld computer and wireless modem can log into a supercomputer in California, run a massively parallel code using data stored at sites in New York, Iowa and Illinois, and download a 3D simulation of the scientific results at the conference in Dallas.
