New SC Theater to Showcase Live Presentations That Advance Modern Data-Driven Scientific Applications

How well do high-performance networking and the theater work together? We’re not talking broadway here, but the new SC Theater will debut during the Grand Opening Gala Reception, Monday, November 18, 7–9 pm. The SC Theater, with seating for 20 and standing room as well, is located next to SCinet on the exhibit floor. It

Computing4Change Returns to SC: Meet Some of the Participants

SC19 will mark the second year of the Computing4Change (C4C) competition, which brings together students from diverse disciplines and backgrounds to learn about data analytics and computational thinking, and work together to apply these skills to addressing a major social challenge. As we get closer to SC19, SIGHPC wanted to learn a little bit more

September Need to Know: HPC Impacts Across Domains; Keynote Announced and Program Finalized; Gordon Bell Award Finalists Named; Mobile App Coming Soon; Early Registration Period Running Out

  Don’t Miss Out on Registration Savings We can’t believe it either, but SC19 truly is right around the corner, which means your chance for early bird registration is slipping away.

Real-Time Analysis of Streaming Synchrotron Data Technology Challenge Demo May Impact Electronics and Pharmaceuticals

  Technology Challenge Is New for SC19 Whether it’s the battery in your smartphone, or a prescription in your medicine cabinet, the SC19 Technology Challenge involves large scale research that may impact your daily life. Examples include increasingly complex experiments using the Advanced Photon Source Facility (APS) generating huge amounts of data that may exceed

Supercomputing’s Evolving Role in Natural Disaster Modeling

  Two groups of scientists on opposite sides of the globe are conducting breakthrough research to help predict the occurrence of and impact from natural disasters – and they are using supercomputing to mitigate many of the risks associated with them. In California, the focus is on one of that state’s most serious and common

Announcing the Winners: ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellows

  ACM’s Special Interest Group on High Performance Computing (SIGHPC), in collaboration with Intel, has announced the six recipients of the ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellowships for 2019. The fellowships are highly competitive, and are awarded after a rigorous merit review. For the first time in the fellowship’s history, all of the recipients

SCinet Help Students Prepare, Build, and Staff World’s Fastest Temporary Network

Students from throughout the planet collaborate with each other and advanced HPC professionals to build SCinet, the world’s fastest network during the SC conference. Before the conference begins students help install miles of fiber optic cable at the exhibit hall, configure wireless access point throughout the convention center, and connect the event to locations worldwide

Student Cluster Competitors Thrive Despite Unforeseen Obstacles

Cliff hangers aren’t just the stuff of fiction and movies. Participants in the SC Student Cluster competition faced several real life glitches prior to and during the event in Dallas, Texas last year. Those challenges included sponsors who withdrew or didn’t show up and the failure of technology in the midst of the competition. But

SC19 Announces Keynote Speaker Dr. Steven Squyres: Exploring the Solar System with the Power of Technology

SC19 Keynote Dr. Steven Squyres Cornell University     Computing Power and Innovation Guide the Way Between 2004 and 2018, mankind spent more than 5,600 cumulative days exploring Mars—yet the principal investigator on those missions never needed a spacesuit. That’s because Spirit and Opportunity, NASA’s two Mars rovers, were guided by the computing power that
