REMINDER: Registration is Open

SC10 registration is now open! Please visit the registration site to begin making your plans to attend! In addition
to registration, the SC10 technical program interactive calendar is also now available. Check out the sessions and
download those you plan to attend right to your personal calendar!

For more registration information: http://sc10.supercomputing.org/?pg=registration.html
Interactive Calendar: http://sc10.supercomputing.org/schedule/schedule_all.php


REMINDER: Register for 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

Deadline Extended - July 26


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.

LAST CALL: Exhibitor Forum Deadline Extended - July 26

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.

SC10 Education Program Applications Due July 31

Educators and students interested in learning how to utilize supercomputing and computational science in their
classrooms are encouraged to apply for travel support to attend SC10. The SC10 Education Program event will occur
November 13-16. Participants are encouraged to stay through the entire conference, which ends on November 19.

Participants will be engaged in hands-on activities to encourage them to apply computational science, grid computing
and high performance computing resources in education. The program is open to undergraduate faculty, undergraduate
and graduate students, and high school teachers. Instructors working with students with learning and physical
challenges are encouraged to apply. The deadline to apply for the SC10 Education Program event is July 31.

The Education Program is a part of SC Communities, which brings together programs designed to support emerging
leaders and groups that have traditionally been under-represented in computing.

SC10 Mentors Request for Participation Due August 1

The SC10 Mentor/Protégé Program offers professionals the opportunity to share their professional experience with
up and coming students both at the SC10 Conference and beyond. The program is hosted by Broader Engagement
and designed to connect college students and professionals from various computing fields as they get first-hand
supercomputing experience through attending seminars and technical presentations. Any professional interested
in mentoring a student must contact the Mentor/Protégé Program via email.

The Mentor/Protégé Program is part of SC Communities, which brings together programs designed to support
emerging leaders and groups that have traditionally been under-represented in computing.

Request to participate due: Sunday, August 1

Disruptive Technologies Submissions Due August 5

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: August 5

Broader Engagement Applications Due August 16


The SC10 Broader Engagement (BE) program is aimed at increasing the involvement of individuals from groups that
have been traditionally underrepresented in the HPC field. The program will offer Sessions that introduce trends and
current applications of HPC and Computational Science, a Mentor/Protégé Program that matches participants with
self-identified mentors, a Student Job Fair and Exhibitor Scavenger Hunt. These SC10 activities are designed to
stimulate interest across the HPC community.

Competitive participation grants are available that support travel to and participation in the SC10 Technical Program
by members of underrepresented groups in HPC, such as African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Alaska
Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, the physically challenged and women. This year a subset of funds is
available to support students and faculty specifically from the MSIs in the Southeast Region.

Request to participate due: Monday, August 16

Student Volunteer Applications Due August 27

Student volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss the latest high performance computing and
networking technologies and meet leading researchers from around the world while contributing to the success of SC10.

Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply as volunteers to help with the administration of the
conference. In exchange, students will receive complimentary conference registration, housing (for out-of-town
volunteers) and some meals. In addition, limited support for transportation expenses (such as airfare) is available
for students from groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in HPC, such as African-Americans, Hispanics,
Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, the physically challenged and women.

from government and industry research labs, academic institutions, and private industry met with students to discuss
research opportunities and temporary and permanent employment opportunities. We ask that Exhibitors confirm
participation in the SC10 Student Job Fair by contacting Yolanda Yolanda Rankin
(student-job-fair@info.supercomputing.org or yarankin@us.ibm.com .) with the name of your organization and your
representative(s) by August 31, 2010.

Request to participate due: Tuesday, August 31
