2.    Attend the Following SC’13 Sessions

Creating a Better Infrastructure to Manage Big Data

  • When: 4:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 21
  • Where: Room 501/502
  • Who: Trev Harmon – Principle Solutions Strategist at Adaptive Computing
  • What: While traditional HPC is at the core of supercomputing, recent advancements are allowing HPC centers to offer new and exciting compute services to their users and other customers. Adaptive Computing will discuss two such advancements – topology-based scheduling and HPC cloud – and how together they provide an infrastructure that allows HPC centers to provide Big Data services along with traditional offerings.

Programming and Managing Systems at Scale

  • When: 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. on Friday, November 22
  • Where: Room 401/402/403
  • Who: Panelists include:
    • Alice Koniges (Chair) – Physicist and Computer Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
    • Ian Nate (Moderator) – Senior Online Marketing Manager at Adaptive Computing
    • Don Maxwell – Team Leader at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility’s (OLCF) High Performance Computing Operations

3.    Party with Adaptive and Intersect360 at the BeoWulf Bash

Date: Monday, November 18, 2013
Time: 9PM-12AM
Location: Wynkoop Brewing Company, 1634 18th Street

Tired of the same old SuperComputing party where you get free food and booze by pretending you’re interested in some vendor products? We thought so. That’s why we’re offering free food, booze, and a pool tournament. We still have great vendors supporting this community event, so be nice and listen to what they have to say.

This year, we convinced the Wynkoop Brewing Company to open up their doors to a group of world-class HPC mavens and the rest of us who want free food and beer. The top floor is a game room where the Spherical Newtonian Solids will be racked up for the pool tournament. There will also be a band and places for quiet conversation where you can debate the merits of big data quantum computing in the cloud and/or Miley Cyrus.

And we will have those irresistible Beowulf Bash goodie bags, because deep down inside you really want cheesy free stuff. Admit it.
