Online registration for the 2014 International Conference on High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, better known as
SC14, is now open on the SC14
website. SC14’s highly competitive and renowned Technical
Program is also now live on the website listing opportunities to see
how #HPCmatters through panels, research papers, tutorials, and
This year’s Supercomputing Conference, SC14, will be held in New Orleans
from November 16–21. With SC’s new theme, “HPC matters”, marking the 26th
annual conference, SC14 attendees can expect a fresh look at high
performance computing (HPC). SC14 will not only bring HPC’s emerging
techniques and innovative applications to New Orleans, but they will
also deliver a stronger message of just how much HPC impacts our lives.
“HPC is such an important tool for scientific discovery. Without it, we
could not have achieved the scientific advances and technologies we have
today,” says SC14’s Conference Chair and Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory’s Deputy Associate Director At-Large for Computation, Trish
Damkroger. “Our message, HPCmatters, is meant to inspire and engage our
community and next-generation in HPC. The idea is to highlight how HPC
is a contributing factor in our lives, from developing new alternative
fuels to finding cures for cancer.”
The backbone of support for HPCmatters is SC14’s rigorous Technical
Program. It provides conference attendees with exciting peer-reviewed,
high-quality technical forums on cutting-edge techniques and
technologies in HPC.
“It is important that we tailor the program to discuss the hardest
problems facing HPC right now,” says computing pioneer Jack Dongarra of
the University of Tennessee. “In the face of exascale computing, we are
facing a whole new set of challenges from hardware with
energy-efficiency, memory technologies, interconnect technologies;
software with scalable systems, programming systems, and data
management; algorithms with new methods at exascale; resilience and
correctness; and scientific productivity. These are some of the
hard-hitting points for HPC, which will be discussed throughout the
The SC14 Technical Program will cover a broad spectrum of technical
presentations and discussions, with more than 81 rigorously
peer-reviewed papers (with a 20% acceptance rate), 33 workshops and 33
tutorials, in addition to panels and posters that showcase the latest
findings from laboratories and research institutions around the world.
See a full list of workshops
on the SC14 website.
In addition to the Technical Program, SC14 will continue its tradition
of providing an unparalleled exhibit space, which uniquely brings
together leaders in academia, research, government and industry. The
SC14 exhibit floor is a natural complement to the technical program as a
venue for debuting the most leading-edge prototypes and services in HPC
and high performance networking. Read more about SC14
HPC Interconnections will also be returning to SC14. Through this
program, SC will provide a welcoming entry for attendees who may be new
to the community or the conference. A range of initiatives help
attendees get the most out of their time at the conference and help them
engage more deeply in the HPC community. Read more about HPC
As a reminder, there are still a few chances to participate in the
Technical Program. July 31 is the deadline for:
and Educational Posters
and Undergraduate ACM Research Poster Competition

SC14, sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and ACM (Association for
Computing Machinery) offers a complete technical education program and
exhibition to showcase the many ways high performance computing,
networking, storage and analysis lead to advances in scientific
discovery, research, education and commerce. This premier international
conference includes a globally attended technical program, workshops,
tutorials, a world class exhibit area, demonstrations and opportunities
for hands-on learning. For more information on SC14, please visit: http://sc14.supercomputing.org

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.
Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations migh...
