BLOOMINGTON, Ind. and SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov. 7 — Indiana University will display its leadership in high performance computing and networking technologies at the annual International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, also known as SC12 (Supercomputing 2012).
This year's conference takes place from November 10 to 16 in Salt Lake City, Utah. As the largest event of its kind, it brings together leading scientists and researchers from around the globe, as well as representatives from top universities, companies and organizations in the supercomputing field. The IEEE Computer Society and the Association for Computing Machinery sponsor the conference.
"2012 has been a big year for Indiana University IT innovations. From the acquisition of a one petaFLOPS supercomputer, Big Red II, to the launch of Monon100, a 100-gigabits-per-second network link for research and education, IU clearly leads higher education in HPC and networking technologies," said Craig Stewart, executive director of IU's Pervasive Technology Institute and associate dean of Research Technologies. "Our SC12 display will highlight IU's emerging and revolutionary projects that advance the national research agenda."
The IU team has taken a leadership role in organizing SC12. Matt Link, director of systems for IU's Research Technologies division, is a member of the conference steering committee - its top-level organizing group. Additionally, IU network engineers will continue a decades-long tradition of operating SCinet, a leading-edge network equipped with OpenFlow-capable switches from vendors such as IBM. SCinet will address the high-performance computing, storage and networking needs of all SC12 exhibitors and attendees.
IU's Pervasive Technology Institute and Global Research Network Operations Center (GlobalNOC) will host the "Mapping Innovation, Bridging to the Future" exhibit in booth #1343. These world-class organizations embody IU's commitment to scholarly innovation, groundbreaking research and ongoing discovery. The exhibit will highlight the following areas, which represent the stops on IU's map to innovation and discovery: networks, experimental systems, big data, cybersecurity and exascale.
Visitors to IU's booth can engage in a variety of demonstrations and presentations, including:
IU will also have a strong presence at the main conference. Events and presentations will take place at the following times:
Indiana University experts will also present in the Open Scalable File Systems (OpenSFS) booth, #2101. IU is a participant in OpenSFS, a nonprofit group that supports the HPC open source file system community. IU speakers and times are:
