When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
Community-Oriented Scientific Support Structures for HPC
SESSION: Community-Oriented Scientific Support Structures for HPC
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Paul Gibbon, Norbert Attig
ABSTRACT: Today, simulation scientists recognize the current prevalence of architectures based on massively parallel and multi-core processor topologies. They are now compelled to concentrate much more on scalability when developing new models, or when re-engineering established codes to new machines.
To address the obstacles posed by Petascale (and in future Exascale) computing, a number of community-oriented, high-level support initiatives have been started in Europe and the US. These initiatives differ in their structural details, but all aim to provide a level of numerical expertise and specialist competence which goes significantly beyond the traditional help desk functionality.
The goals of this BoF are to: a) compare the various user support structures currently in operation b) examine sustainability issues of scientific software in HPC c) provide support teams at leading SC centers with an opportunity to exchange experiences and ideas d) motivate other centers to establish or to strengthen their own community-oriented support.
