Future Tech researchers contribute to SC08 conference

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.
