This week in Austin, Texas, researchers from ORNL’s Future Technologies Group are contributing to multiple events at SC08, the premier international conference for high-performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis. Members of the FT group have contributed to four technical papers, one Gordon Bell Finalist submission, one poster, and multiple birds-of-a-feather sessions. The four technical papers are titled “Early Evaluation of BlueGene/P”, “Wide-Area Performance Profiling of 10GigE and Infiniband Technologies”, “High Performance Multivariate Visual Data Exploration for Extremely Large Data”, and a “New algorithm to enable 400+ TFlop/s sustained performance in simulations of disorder effects in high-Tc superconductors,” which is also a Gordon Bell Finalist. The poster is titled “Modeling Assertions for Petascale Applications and Systems.” Members of the group were also involved in numerous conference committees: technical papers, tutorials, and disruptive technologies.
