BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Nov. 12 -- How will emerging cloud technologies enhance scientific and medical research in the coming decades? How can meteorological scientists use digital data to visualize and predict future weather patterns? How will chemists, physicists, astronomers and other scientists gain easier access to the powerful new supercomputing resources increasingly required in research?
The "Look to the Future" display and workshops, hosted by the Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI) at Indiana University, will explore these and other questions at this year's Supercomputing Conference (SC09), taking place in Portland, Ore., Nov. 14-19. SC is the largest event of its kind in the United States, bringing together the top colleges and universities, companies, and organizations within the field of supercomputing.
"This is truly an exceptional year for IU supercomputing," said Craig Stewart, executive director of PTI and associate dean of Research Technologies. "This month, IU unveiled a new state-of-the-art Data Center, which will house the core of the FutureGrid testbed, funded recently by a collaborative award from the National Science Foundation. This joins IU's ongoing projects in areas such as science gateways and data visualization -- all of which will be highlighted in our SC09 display."
The IU booth includes an "Innovation Theatre" where a special musical performance and four mini-workshops will take place during the course of the week-long conference. These events are free to registered conference attendees and do not require pre-registration, though seating is limited.
At the SC09 opening gala, IUPUI Professor of Music Scott Deal will present "Telematic Explorations," original telematic work synthesizing live music, dance, drama, and visual arts with Internet-based interactive processes and performance content. The presentation takes place Monday, Nov. 16, 7-9 p.m.
The schedule for the mini-workshops is as follows:
Visitors to the IU exhibit can also engage in several ongoing interactive demonstrations, including:
