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.
Convey’s Heterogeneous Computing Architecture Supporting Applications in Data-intensive Sciences
SESSION: Heterogeneous Computing
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 2:30PM - 3:00PM
Presenter(s):Bobski Masson, Kirby Collins
ABSTRACT: The explosion of data, and corresponding need to capture, manage, analyze, and understand that data means a fundamental change in high-performance computing hardware and software. Applications that manipulate massive amounts of data require approaches that are unreachable by today’s commodity systems.
One architectural approach uses Convey’s reconfigurable, heterogeneous architecture called hybrid-core computing. Hybrid-core computing provides a balance between reconfigurable computing elements and a supercomputer-inspired memory subsystem. The architecture lends itself directly to problems in the data-intensive sciences, and especially graph-type algorithms.
Specifically, Convey has developed a “personality” (a hardware-based instruction set) for the Graph 500 benchmark that gives dramatically increased performance for the dollar (or watt or cubic meter). During this forum Convey will describe how hybrid-core computing technology is uniquely equipped to address the challenges of data intensive computing now and in the future.
