SC is the International Conference for
 High Performnance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 13-19, 2010

Future Supercomputing Centers

SESSION: Future Supercomputing Centers


TIME: 8:30AM - 10:00AM

Panelists:Thom Dunning, Tony Hey, William Gropp, Thomas Lippert, Satoshi Matsuoka, Thomas Zacharia


This panel will discuss the nature of federal- and state-supported supercomputing centers, what is required to sustain them in the future, and how they will cope with the evolution of computing technology. Since the federally supported centers were created in the mid-1980s, they have fueled innovation and discovery, increasing the number of computational researchers, stimulating the use of HPC in industry, and pioneering new technologies. The future of supercomputing is exciting—sustained petascale systems are here with planning for exascale systems now underway—but it also challenging—disruptive technology changes will be needed to reach the exascale. How can supercomputing help ensure that today’s petascale supercomputer are effectively used to advance science and engineering and how can they help the research and industrial communities prepare for an exciting, if uncertain future?
