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.
Using the TOP500 to Trace and Project Technology and Architecture Trends
SESSION: Large Scale Systems
EVENT TYPE: Paper
TIME: 4:30PM - 5:00PM
AUTHOR(S):Peter Michael Kogge, Timothy J. Dysart
ABSTRACT: The TOP500 is a treasure trove of information on the leading edge of high
performance computing. It was used in the 2008 DARPA Exascale technology
report to isolate out the effects of architecture and technology on high
performance computing, and lay the groundwork to project how current
systems might mature through the coming years. Two particular classes of
architectures were identified: "heavyweight'" (based on high end
commodity microprocessors) and "lightweight,'" (primarily BlueGene
variants), and projections made on performance, concurrency, memory
capacity, and power. This paper updates those projections, and adds a
third class of "heterogeneous'" architectures (leveraging the emerging
class of GPU-like chips) to the mix.
