Thirty-two ORNL staff members are working on SC10's organizing and technical committees
Nov. 11 -- Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) staff will fill a variety of leadership roles at the 23rd annual international Supercomputing conference (SC10) to be held November 13–19 in New Orleans. The conference will bring together more than 1,000 of the world's leading high-performance computing (HPC) experts to give presentations, network, and work toward solving pressing computational problems. Thirty-two representatives from ORNL will take part in a variety of organizational and technical aspects of the conference, including 12 staff members either chairing or co-chairing various events and five members working with SCinet, the advanced network that powers the exhibitions and demonstrations throughout the conference.
The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility's project director, Buddy Bland, is not surprised by the large turnout of ORNL staff. "ORNL has always had many active members of the organizing committee and volunteer staff for the SC conferences. We see the conference as the premier event in the high-performance computing and communications world each year," he said.
Becky Verastegui, ORNL information technology services director, is SC10's vice-chair, and Ricky Kendall, scientific computing group leader, is chair of the technical program. Jim Hack, director of the National Center for Computational Sciences, will be co-chairing one of the conference's main technological thrusts: climate simulation. Computational scientists Hai Ah Nam and Scott Klasky will chair the student cluster competition and the storage programs, respectively, and network services engineer Charles Fisher will be chairing the conference's session on HPC architecture. The tutorial program, designed to show conference attendees how to use some of the large-scale applications for supercomputers, will be chaired by senior HPC researcher Jeffery Kuehn. Doug Fuller, input/output systems computational scientist, will co-chair the poster session, at which more than 60 teams will present cutting-edge research throughout the course of the weekend.
SC10 is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery and the Institute for Electronics and Electrical Engineers' Computer Society.
