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

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

Enterprise networks are complex. Moreover, they were designed and deployed to meet a specific set of business requirements at a specific point in time. But, the adoption of cloud services, new business applications and intensifying security policies, among other factors, require IT organizations to continuously deploy configuration changes. Therefore, enterprises are looking for better ways to automate the management of their networks while still leveraging existing capabilities, optimizing perf...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all.
In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...

The idea behind this session is my blog post - 5 Logstash Alternatives - which is unfortunately too short to do the presented log shippers justice.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Radu Gheorghe, Software Engineer at Sematext Group, will talk more about the things that matter: kinds of buffers, protocols, ways of parsing, correlating and de-duplicating messages, as well as supported inputs and outputs. And of course performance. All this should let you know which log shipper...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
In this power panel at @...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
