RENO, Nev., Sept. 24 -- For a second year, the annual Supercomputing Conference will feature an exhibit hall of "disruptive technologies" to highlight innovations in high performance computing.
This display, formerly called Exotic Technologies, premiered at SC06 in Tampa, Fla. At SC07, this event is called Disruptive Technologies and will feature an exhibit area where researchers will display and demonstrate their new technologies to attendees.
"This exhibit allows people who use high-performance computing to experience technologies that have the potential to change the landscape of hardware and software dramatically. In the next two decades, we may see some of these technologies used in every supercomputer," said SC07 Disruptive Technologies Chair Jeffrey Vetter of Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Georgia Institute of Technology.
This year, the Disruptive Technologies Committee selected featured technologies from a large pool of submissions. The winning entries, which will comprise the SC07 Disruptive Technologies Showcase, are:
The Disruptive Technologies display will be in Exhibit Hall 1B of the Reno-Sparks Convention Center from Monday, Nov. 12 to Thursday, Nov. 15.

SC07, sponsored by ACM and IEEE Computer Society, will showcase how high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis lead to advances in research, education and commerce. The conference includes technical and education programs, workshops, tutorials, an exhibit area, demonstrations and hands-on learning. For more information, visit http://sc07.supercomp.org/.
