ORNL FT Group to give PPoPP'08 tutorial on Extreme-Scale Parallel I/O

The ORNL Future Technologies group with personnel from the ORNL National Center for Computational Sciences are to give a tutorial on parallel I/O for extreme-scale platforms such as the Cray XT, IBM Blue Gene, and ultra-scale Linux clusters. We will share our experiences and lessons learned from characterizing and optimizing I/O on these platforms, and discuss directions and issues that need to be addressed for I/O at the unprecedented scale needed for petaflop and even exaflop systems. Join us on February 23, 2008 in Salt Lake City for this enlightening, in-depth discussion.
