February 28, 2013
Feb. 28 — 2013 is the year that large scale heterogeneous computing becomes a reality. Systems such as Blue Waters, Stampede, and Titan take a major step from modest scale, heterogeneous test beds and prototypes to world-class, extreme-scale heterogeneous computing systems. Through the use of these systems, the science and engineering community has access to excellent resources and services to experience multiple ways to harness manycore processes for their applications.
The NSF funded Blue Waters and eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) projects are hosting the seventh in a series of Extreme Scaling workshops. The workshop will address large scale heterogeneous computing through a series of talks and discussions for sharing experiences and successes making use of the new types resources of GPUs and manycore processors. This workshop is set up to provide a sufficient period of time for science and engineering teams to gain understanding on utilizing these systems to advance their applications while still having time to exchange and learn best practices.
The workshop goal is to inform research and education communities about how to effectively utilize large numbers of accelerated nodes. The dissemination of information will occur through presentations, discussions, and workshop proceedings that will include recommendations from the presenters and participants who have had experience with these technologies. The workshop organizers plan to seek ACM SIG affiliation to include the proceedings in the ACM digital library.
The workshop committee seeks submissions of excellent quality addressing your experiences with the following challenges:
Two types of submissions are encouraged from scientists, engineers, scholars, and high-performance technologists from colleges, universities, laboratories, industry, HPC centers, and other organizations conducting related work.
There will be discussion time after the paper presentations and after the panels on needed improvements. Workshop proceedings will be produced that will include the accepted papers and white papers and a summary of recommendations from the discussions among the presenters and participants.
Send submissions to Scott Lathrop at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15, 2013. Notice of acceptances will be issued by June 1, 2013.
May 15: Paper abstracts and white paper submissions due.
June 1: Acceptances issued.
June 10: Workshop registration opens.
July 1: Final papers due.
Aug. 15-16: Workshop held at University of Colorado, Boulder
Registration, Travel and Accommodations
A registration fee of $150 covers the cost of food and beverages provided at the workshop: breakfast, lunch and dinner on Monday, and breakfast and lunch on Tuesday.
A block of rooms will be reserved at a hotel that is within walking distance of the meeting location in Boulder. The room rates in our block are $124/night plus taxes.
Participants are responsible for the cost of their own travel and accommodations and making their own travel arrangements. There is a shuttle available to transport people between the Denver airport and Boulder for about $33/person. Additional details about housing and travel will be made available on the web site.

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?
