XSCI Invited to Give Presentations at IPDPS Conference
Representatives from the eXtreme Scale Computing Initiative (XSCI) at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory were invited to give a Global Arrays presentation at the prestigious 2011 IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS) in Anchorage, Alaska in May. In addition to the invitation to present a Global Arrays tutorial and host a full-day workshop to discuss the readiness for exascale computing of data-centric programming models, five XSCI Principal Investigators were invited to speak about their research for the Initiative: Daniel Chavarria, Darren Kerbyson, Manoj Krishnan, Bruce Palmer, and Abhinav Vishnu.
XSCI's mission is to develop methods, algorithms, and software that can be efficiently used on the next generation of supercomputers with a 1,000-fold increase in computational power compared to what is available today. High-performance computing is working to solve problems our society is facing in areas such as energy, the environment, and national security.
IPDPS is an international forum for engineers and scientists from around the world to present their latest research findings in all aspects of parallel computation. IPDPS represents a unique international gathering of computer scientists from around the world.
