HOT TOPIC: Conference Registration Opens & the Annual Technical Program
Online July 7


Get ready! SC10 registration will open on Wednesday, July 7, so representatives from industry, academia and
government who use high performance computing can begin making plans to attend.

In addition to registration opening, the SC10 conference annual technical program schedule will be available online
beginning on July 7. This year, the technological thrust areas that will be featured prominently at the conference
are climate simulation, heterogeneous computing and data-intensive computing.

REMINDER: Register for SC10 Housing


SC10 attendees can now reserve hotel rooms at SC10 conference hotels in New Orleans. For complete information
on the hotels, room rates and how to make reservations, visit the SC10 Hotels webpage. Because many of the
conference hotels are near the convention center where SC10 will be held, shuttle bus service will be limited to
hotels in the French Quarter and downtown.

IMPORTANT NOTE: SC10 works exclusively with The Housing Connection (THC) to provide hotel reservations.
Any other housing organizations claiming to be affiliated with SC10 are NOT official partners - avoid problems by
using the authorized SC10 reservation site.

SC10 Hotels site: http://sc10.supercomputing.org/?pg=hotels.html

FEATURE:
Spotlight on New Orleans


New Orleans is where the future began for renowned discoverers and innovators of the past, and in November 2010,
The Big Easy plays host to discoverers of the future at SC10. The city is world renowned for its celebrations, its culinary
style and its culture. In November, temperatures average between the mid 50s to the mid 70s making it a wonderful
time of year to explore the city and all it has to offer - from its vibrant arts and music scene to its unique architecture
and first class cuisine. Courtesy of the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, visit http://neworleansmeeting.com

Disruptive Technologies Submissions Due July 26

Generally speaking, a disruptive technology is a technological innovation or product that eventually supplants the
existing dominant technology or product in the marketplace. For SC10, Disruptive Technologies will serve as a
forum for examining technologies that may significantly reshape the HPC ecosystem in the next five to fifteen years,
but which are not common in today's systems. Disruptive Technologies will showcase these technologies in panel
sessions and an exhibit showcase.

Submissions due: July 26, 2010

Interested in becoming an Exhibitor? Booth Space Available

Interested organizations - companies, as well as research and educations institutions - still have an opportunity to
exhibit at SC10 in New Orleans which will offer an unprecedented amount of exhibit space due to the size of the
Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. SC attracts about 10,000 scientists, researchers, department managers, lab
directors and decision makers from all corners of the global HPC and networking industry, making the conference
a great opportunity for showing off your latest achievements. Nearly 300 exhibitors have already reserved booth
space. "The continued increase in organizations committing to exhibiting is a result of the high-powered buyers
that attend and the consistent advancements in the products found in this segment of the computing industry,"
said Eric Sills, SC10 Exhibits Chair. The list of the exhibitors that have already reserved booth space can be
reviewed at: http://iebms.heiexpo.com/iebms/oep/oep_p1_exhibitors.aspx?oc=34&ct=OEP&eventid=5010

Opportunity for Poster Sessions Participation Due July 15

The SC10 Technical Poster Session will exhibit the latest emerging research and developments in high performance
computing. Please note that this year's poster submission will require a draft of the proposed poster for the review
process. Submissions are invited in the areas of high performance algorithms, applications, architecture/networks
and software. SC10's poster session will also highlight SC10's thrust areas including climate, heterogeneous
computing and sharing large-scale data. The SC10 Technical Posters Committee will review submissions and
issue an award for the best poster at the session.

Seeking Papers and Panels for SC10 Special Topic: Workforce Development

SC10 Communities is seeking proposals for panels and paper submissions that address issues and solutions in
HPC workforce development, focusing on identifying and exploring specific skills and capabilities needed in the
HPC workforce; describing new and existing approaches to increase the skilled workforce; and discussing the trends
and forces shaping HPC workforce needs and new education and training approaches over the next 5 to 10 years.
Papers of 5 to 10 pages and panels of 3-5 speakers, addressing issues in high performance computing and
cyber-infrastructure workforce development, will be considered for these sessions, which will run concurrently with
the SC10 Technical Program, on November 16-18, 2010.

Storage Challenge Returns to SC10

The Storage Challenge is a competition showcasing applications and environments that effectively use the storage
subsystem in high performance computing, which is often the limiting system component. Submissions can be based
upon tried and true production systems as well as research or proof-of-concept projects not yet in production.

Participants will describe their implementations and present measurements of performance, scalability and storage
subsystem utilization. Judging will be based on these measurements as well as innovation and effectiveness;
maximum size and peak performance are not the sole criteria. Finalists will be chosen on the basis of submissions
that are in the form of proposals; they will present their completed results in a technical session during the conference
from which the winner(s) will be selected.

Request to participate due: Monday, July 19

Sharing Successes and Ideas through the Exhibitor Forum


The SC10 Exhibits Committee invites industry exhibitors to submit an abstract for the Exhibitor Forum presentation
at the show in New Orleans. Exhibitor Forum presentations offer industry exhibitors the opportunity to share recent
advances, discuss roadmaps and future plans, or provide case studies of their customers' successes. These
technology-focused presentations will offer SC10 attendees the opportunity to hear directly from HPC system and
technology providers.

Abstracts should be no more than 150 words. PDF files will also be accepted to supplement submissions. This can
be a white paper, a presentation, or other material. The committee will review the submissions and notify the
exhibitors in late August if the submission was approved or denied. The Exhibits Committee looks forward to
seeing the submissions.
