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.
SaaS-Based Research: The Path to Reality for “Research in the Cloud”
SESSION: SaaS-Based Research: The Path to Reality for “Research in the Cloud”
EVENT TYPE: Panel
TIME: 8:30AM - 10:00AM

ABSTRACT: With the world moving to web-based tools for everything from wage reporting to soccer scheduling, it’s no wonder scientists are now seeking online technologies to support their research. But the requirements of high-performance computational research are both unique and daunting: massive data, complex software, limited budgets, and demand for increased collaboration. While “the cloud” promises to alleviate some of these pressures, concerns about feasibility still exist for scientists and the HPC facilities where they compute. This panel will explore the capacity of Software as a Service (SaaS) to transform computational research so the challenges above can be leveraged to advance, not hinder, innovation and discovery. With panelists representing each constituency of a potential online research environment (researcher, supercomputing center, SaaS provider, and cloud provider) we will debate the delta between where we are – and where we need to be – for scientists to reliably and securely perform research in the cloud.
