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

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

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.

Personalized Healthcare Challenges for High Performance Computing

SESSION: Personalized Healthcare Challenges for High Performance Computing

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):David Galas, Eric Stahlberg


To achieve the goal of personalized healthcare, the amount of information to analyze is overwhelming and the task of turning this raw data into biological knowledge to inform healthcare decisions is computationally daunting, presenting new challenges to the high performance computing industry. The need for data aggregation and analytics across many data sources will require collaboration among providers of electronic medical record systems, genomic reference databases, next generation sequencing, proteomics, and diagnostic imaging, potentially resulting in terabytes of data uniquely characterizing each individual. Systems biology simulations and bioinformatics applications are being developed, yet the ability to translate these research applications to reliable clinical use presents several important challenges. Such issues include data transmission and storage, upward and downward application scalability, reliability, security, interoperability, compliance, validation and affordability. This session brings together individuals to clarify requirements for future systems and applications while fostering exchange of solutions and ideas.
