ABSTRACT: SGI's new Altix UV is a unique and exciting platform for large-scale, shared-memory computing. This BOF will bring together many of the early adopters of this technology to share results, programming and operating experiences, and plans for future projects. Participants will include a array of users from research and commercial organizations, and cover many interesting use-cases for shared memory, such as large-scale data and image analysis, and complex systems simulation.
Panelists include: Sean Ahern, Director of the University of Tennessee Center for Remote Data Analysis and Visualization; Dr. Rune Linding, Cellular & Molecular Logic Team Leader, The Institute of Cancer Research; Michael Pflugmacher, Assistant Director of High End Computing, National Center for Supercomputing Applications; Nick Nystrom, Director of Strategic Applications, Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
This BOF is hosted by the SGI Worldwide User Group, a volunteer-run organization for and by users of SGI's products and services.
