OTTAWA, April 11 — The 2013 High Performance Computing Symposium is open for registration and technical program submissions.
Canada's top supercomputing conference is being held at the University of Ottawa from June 2 to 6. HPCS 2013 will address the role of "big data" and "big computing" - using the largest, most powerful computers available - for breakthroughs and innovation in medicine, industry, government and academia including:
"Big data and high-performance computing is playing a bigger role every day in our lives and in our workplaces," said Bill Appelbe, President and CEO of Compute Canada. "The High Performance Computing Symposium brings together some of the world's leading visionaries, researchers, entrepreneurs and users of big data and big computing to learn of the latest breakthroughs and future applications."
Keynote speakers and panelists include:
Registration for the conference is online at http://2013.hpcs.ca/registration/. Early-bird prices are in effect until April 30, 2013. Various packages are available from single day participation to full event registration and tutorials.
This year's conference is hosted by the Ontario HPC Consortia - HPCVL, SHARCNET, and SciNet - which provide computing resources and expertise to Canadian researchers and innovators. Sponsors include IBM, Panasas, Spectra Logic, CANARIE, Ontario Centres of Excellence, and ORION.
HPCS (High Performance Computing Symposium) is Canada's foremost supercomputing conference - a multidisciplinary conference where computational researchers from all disciplines in industry and academia, computer scientists, and vendors exchange new tools, techniques and interesting results in and for HPC computational research. Founded in the mid-1980s, this is the 27th annual conference.
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.
