BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Nov. 17 -- Information technology leaders and experts from around the world will learn the vital role Indiana University's advanced cyberinfrastructure plays in scholarly innovation, creative activity and research during the SC08 supercomputing conference, the premier U.S. event in the field of supercomputing, being held this week in Austin, Texas.
The exhibit, "Foundations for Innovation: Gateways to Insight," will showcase IU's activities in national grids and cyberinfrastructure activities, research technologies in support of the life sciences, and projects related to digital libraries, arts and humanities.
"Indiana University celebrates and values its rich and glorious tradition in the arts and humanities as well as its accomplishments and leadership in advanced information technologies and cyberinfrastructure," said IU Associate Dean for Research Technologies Craig Stewart. "Our SC08 exhibit honors the nexus of these institutional fortes."
As a nod to Austin's designation as the "Live Music Capital of the World," IU technologists, artists and musicians will take center stage during tonight's opening night gala, with performances by:
Visitors can also learn about the IU supercomputers, Big Red and Quarry, and the new state-of-the-art Data Center nearing completion on the IU Bloomington campus.
"IU's supercomputing efforts are a foundation for innovation providing the power, tools, expertise and the facilities to support novel research, creative activity, and scholarly excellence," said Stewart. "These tools, in conjunction with an environment of collaboration supported at the highest levels of the university, provide the gateways for insight that lay the groundwork for future advances."
Other presentations include overviews of IU's innovations and contributions in the life sciences, polar and meteorological research, and open grid computing environments.
