SC14 Registration Opens, Technical Program Goes Live

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 workshops.

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 Technical Program.”

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 and tutorials 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.

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 Interconnections.

As a reminder, there are still a few chances to participate in the Technical Program. July 31 is the deadline for:

Emerging Technologies

Birds-of-a-feather Sessions (BoFs)

Scientific Visualization Showcase

Doctoral Showcase Program

Research and Educational Posters

Graduate and Undergraduate ACM Research Poster Competition

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
The IoTs 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, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development proc...
Redis is not only the fastest database, but it has become the most popular among the new wave of applications running in containers. Redis speeds up just about every data interaction between your users or operational systems. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dave Nielsen, Developer Relations at Redis Labs, will shares the functions and data structures used to solve everyday use cases that are driving Redis' popularity.
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected.
