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: The Unified Curvilinear Ocean Atmospheric Model (UCOAM) is a Large Eddie Simulation (LES) CFD model capable of running both ocean and atmospheric simulations. It is the only environmental model in existence today using a full, 3D curvilinear coordinate system, which results in increased accuracy, resolution, and reduced times to solution. UCOAM is a petascale model: resolving sub-km scale fluctuations requires large arrays (1010 elements); the curvilinear system requires large number of arrays (~100); communication occurs along all 3 axes; and full simulations generate TBytes of data. Consequently, this model requires parallelization. To facilitate our computations and data management, we have developed a Computational Environment (CE) based on the Cyberinfrastructure Web Application Framework (CyberWeb). In this poster we discuss our approach and challenges associated with parallelizing this new model and the design of the computational environment. We will also present results from scalability studies of this new parallel model.
