Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment (SAGE) for Global Collaboration

SESSION: Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment (SAGE) for Global Collaboration

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Jason Leigh, Luc Renambot, Sachin Deshpande


Today’s scientists are tackling issues of global priority -- such as the environment, geoscience, bioscience, disaster response, and the physical nature of the universe, to name a few -- and need the ability to view ultra-resolution images and/or create “cyber-mashups,” or juxtapositions, of information -- a critical component of data analysis -- in order to gain more holistic views and insight regarding complex issues, and make more informed observations and discoveries. To view data-intensive information, scientists require large tiled display walls connected to multi-gigabit networks, as well as a common operating environment, or framework, to access, stream and juxtapose data objects. SAGE, the Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment, is such an environment; it is a graphics streaming architecture that enables users to interactively access, display and share a variety of data-intensive information, in a variety of resolutions and formats, from multiple sources, with the same ease that the Web affords for accessing lower-resolution objects today. This BOF session provides an opportunity for the SAGE < > global user community -- current users as well as potential users -- to meet, discuss current and future development efforts, and share examples of community-developed use cases and applications. SAGE is a three-year project funded by the National Science Foundation to create persistent visualization and collaboration services for global cyberinfrastructure, and is currently deployed at 53 major supercomputer centers, government laboratories, universities, and corporate research centers worldwide.
