What’s New for SC10 To match the advancements in high performance computing and networking, the SC conference series regularly introduces new program elements through presentations, programs and displays. In New Orleans, the SC 10 Technical Program will emphasize three “Technology Thrust Areas” where HPC is tack- ling important challenges. These thrust areas will be addressed throughout the Technical Program and the exhibition.

Climate Simulation

Understanding climate change is one of the most challenging questions of the 21st century. While supercomputers are providing critical insight into this issue, networking and data analysis also play essential roles. At SC10, this spe- cial thrust area will explore the latest research and development efforts that are taking advantage of HPC systems to enable climate simulation applications and techniques. These include applied mathematics, algorithms, verification and validation, statistics, computer science, atmospheric chemistry, as well as envi- ronmental and societal impacts.

Heterogeneous Computing As CPU performance levels plateau, new architectures are being examined to increase both overall performance and energy efficiency. The advent of the IBM hybrid supercomputer nicknamed “Roadrunner,” as well as the GPU ac- celerator movement towards HPC, has demonstrated the beginning of accel- erator-based computing at a large scale. Many think accelerated HPC is the primary path to exascale computing. This thrust area will primarily focus on software infrastructure for making effective use of accelerator or heteroge- neous supercomputers and will showcase lessons learned as well as highlight next steps to move such initiatives forward.

Data-Intensive Computing Researchers in all scientific domains are increasingly creating huge amounts of data from both increasingly detailed simulations as well as from large-scale ex- perimental activities. The challenge now is to get the science out of the data. The focus of this thrust area will be on how data is shared and communicated among participating scientists–specifically examining the hardware and soft- ware infrastructure that is needed to effectively share, manage and analyze large data sets.

But no matter what your technical interest, you’re bound to appreciate the warm hospitality of New Orleans, our host city for SC10. One of the world’s most recognizable cities, New Orleans (or NOLA) is famous for its multicul- tural heritage, producing a way of life that thrills all of the senses. Jazz. Blues. Creole cooking. Cajun fare. Beignets and coffee. The architecture of the French Quarter. Friendly smiles. New Orleans and the SC10 organizers are looking to make this year’s conference the most compelling ever. Plan now to join the global HPC community in this truly international setting.
