Dec. 6 -- We invite you to participate in a NSF sponsored workshop, "Building Effective Virtual Organizations." This meeting will be held in Washington, DC, Jan. 15-16, with a reception on the evening of Jan. 14. Please register immediately, as limited slots are available for participation.
Virtual organizations are increasingly central to the science and engineering projects funded by the National Science Foundation. Indeed, if you are a researcher or educator, chances are that you if don't already lead or participate in at least one distributed team, you will soon.
Unfortunately, chances are also that you have never been told how to establish such teams, how to make them successful, or what technologies exist that can help them function effectively. You probably haven't had many opportunities to interact with others building, or just working in, virtual organizations, either.
Our goal at VirtOrg2008 is to help address this knowledge gap. We invite you to take this opportunity to come and learn what is required to make virtual organizations successful, contribute your experiences and challenges to the discussions, and to establish new connections that will help you succeed in your research and education projects in the future.
"Building Effective Virtual Organizations" is sponsored by the National Science Foundation's Office of Cyberinfrastructure, which has identified virtual organizations as a fundamental element of its infrastructure plans. Attendees will be responsible for their own travel and hotel. There is no fee to attend the workshop, but registration is required as space is limited. Details on agenda, registration and venue can be found at: http://www.ci.uchicago.edu/events/VirtOrg2008.
We hope you can join us in January in Washington, DC.

10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
