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.

The traditional visualization workflow stores simulation data to disk, followed by the post-processing, as an independent analysis and visualization step. The rapid increase of produced simulation results makes post-processing a significant time-consuming task. In-situ visualization, by coupling simulation and visualization steps, allows data analysis during the simulation, thus eliminating the need to store data. Data movement is considered too inefficient in an exascale system, and thus propose to do the computations locally where the data is created. Access to the simulation data is provided through an interface without loss of flexibility and abstraction. We demonstrate the scalability and impact on the simulation of this approach, implemented using raytracing, in two use cases: isosurface rendering in a mockup simulation reading from disk and particle rendering in an electrostatic particle-in-cell code.
