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.

ABSTRACT: In this poster, we consider the challenge of data analysis in a scenario where data is stored across a local cluster and cloud resources. We describe a software framework to enable data-intensive computing with cloud bursting, i.e., using a combination of compute resources from a local cluster and a cloud environment to perform Map-Reduce type processing on a data set that is geographically distributed. Our evaluation with three different applications shows that data-intensive computing with cloud bursting is feasible and scalable. As compared to a situation where the data set is stored at one location and processed using resources at that end, the average slowdown of our system is only 15.55%. Thus, the overheads due to global reduction, remote data retrieval, and potential load imbalance are quite manageable. Our system scales with an average speedup of 81% when the number of compute resources is doubled.
