SC19 Keynote: When High Performance Computing Moves to the Edge

SC19 Keynote Speaker Details Lessons from Unmanned Mars Exploration When we talk about high performance computing (HPC), what we usually mean is the physical power of the technology—more speed, more bandwidth. more capacity. But sometimes the “high performance” isn’t about raw horsepower. “Computing on the edge” can call for ingenuity and software to overcome the

SC19 October Need to Know: Early Bird Registration Deadline; Hotel Additions; Student Headquarters; SCC Reproducibility Challenge; SC Store and Collectables

  Six Weeks to Register, Two Weeks to Save, and More Hotels SC19 will be happening in just six short weeks! Our volunteers and presenters are excited to share everything we’ve been working hard to put together for the HPC community. Register on or before Wednesday, October 16 to save, but know that you can

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. Register before October 16 to save up to $300.   HPC Is Now: Predicting and Mitigating the Impact of Catastrophes What do earthquakes and

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

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

SC19 August Need to Know: Smart Cities, ToTA Announcement, Tech Papers in the Schedule, Exhibitor Opportunities, Support for Student Travel

Smart Cities: Computing at the Edge You’ve probably heard the hype around connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), but do you know how much of a role HPC plays in making dreams of self-driving cars into reality? Or how researchers in the fields of edge computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and big data

Autonomous Vehicles and HPC: Moving Quickly Beyond the Hype

Few technological innovations in recent years have generated more attention (and debate) than the seemingly imminent arrival of self-driving cars. Known within the industry as connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), these once-futuristic concepts edge ever closer to reality – and when they do become deployed at Level 4 or higher on the Level of Automation

Food Production & HPC: Understanding Plant Growth From Above & Below

Applying Ones and Zeros to Fields and Farms From Thomas Malthus in the 18th century to Paul Ehrlich in the 1960s, people have long feared that population would outstrip the planet’s capacity to feed people. What has kept those predictions at bay has been technology—not only in the soil, but more recently in the field

SC19 June Need to Know: Food Production & HPC, Free Proceedings, SC22 Chair Nominations, Major June Announcements, SCinet Spring Cleaning, Submissions & Nominations Deadlines

June’s Theme: Food Production and HPC When you imagine where your food comes from, I’m willing to bet that data centers and high performance computing are not in your immediate stockpile of images about how what you eat gets from the field to the table. Increasingly, though, these technologies ensure that you are able to
