Nov. 12 -- The University of Illinois at Chicago's Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) will host a SAGE Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) at SC09, on Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. at the Oregon Convention Center, Portland, Room A107-108. Interested parties can bring a brown bag lunch if pressed for time. For details, see http://scyourway.nacse.org/conference/view/bof195.
Members of the SAGE User Community are showcasing several SAGE applications in their research booths at SC09. Here is a partial listing:
Dutch Research Consortium (Booth #2154)
The SARA Computing and Networking Services facility of The Netherlands plans several SAGE demonstrations:
TACC, University Of Queensland and Dell (Booth #1545 AND #1535)
The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) is deploying an NSF-funded ultra-scale visualization cluster "Longhorn" at its facility in Austin, Texas, and uses SAGE to demonstrate Longhorn's large-scale remote visualization and collaboration capabilities. Using SAGE and the TeraGrid's 10Gbps network, large-scale visualizations coming off Longhorn are displayed on a 36-Megapixel tiled display wall in the TACC booth on the show floor. In addition, the University of Queensland in Australia streams uncompressed and DXT-compressed full-HD live camera feeds and visualization streams to the TACC booth using SAGE over AARNet, Pacific Wave, and NLR PacketNet. These streams are also forwarded to the Dell booth on the show floor.
Osaka University (Booth #907)
Osaka University of Japan plans two demonstrations:
SAGE, the Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment, is cross-platform, open-source middleware that enables users worldwide to have a common operating environment, or framework, to access, stream and juxtapose data objects -- whether digital cinema animations, high-resolution images, high-definition video-teleconferencing, presentation slides, documents, spreadsheets or laptop screens -- on one or more tiled display walls. SAGE is an outgrowth of the NSF-funded OptIPuter project, whose goal was to enable collaborating scientists to interactively explore massive amounts of previously uncorrelated data by developing new architectures for shared e-science facilities. Early adaptors are creating a nascent international user community that is referred to as the OptIPlanet Collaboratory. NSF recently awarded a three-year, $1.9-Million grant to the University of Illinois at Chicago's Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) to create persistent SAGE visualization and collaboration services for global cyberinfrastructure. For more information, see www.evl.uic.edu/sage.
The Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at University of Illinois at Chicago is a graduate research laboratory specializing in the research and development of networked, high-resolution visualization, collaboration and virtual-reality display hardware and software systems, and the design and implementation of international networking infrastructure. It is a joint effort of UIC’s College of Engineering and School of Art and Design, and represents the oldest formal collaboration between engineering and art in the country offering graduate MS, PhD and MFA degrees. EVL has received worldwide recognition for developing the CAVE and ImmersaDesk virtual-reality systems, and, more recently, the GeoWall low-cost passive stereo display, the LambdaVision tiled display, the Varrier autostereoscopic display, and the LambdaTable and TacTile horizontal high-resolution displays. EVL receives major funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). EVL is a founding member of StarLight and the Global Lambda Integrated Facility (GLIF), and was a lead institution of the NSF-funded OptIPuter project. www.evl.uic.edu.

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?
