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.

Scientific Data Parallelism Using P2P Techniques

The complexity of computational models of scientific experiments brings challenges on the conduction of these experiments. Scientific workflows have being adopted on large-scale science and since they use great volumes of data, they demands parallelism. However, parallelize a workflow requires tools and programming skills to run it in parallel in supercomputers. Trying to turn parallelization more transparent to the scientist, this work presents the Heracles approach. Heracles proposes a fault tolerant and dynamic resource management mechanism using P2P. Heracles executes activities in parallel without asking the scientists to specify the number of nodes to be allocated and it automatically reschedules failed tasks. Scientists only need to setup the deadline for the activity. Heracles was evaluated through simulation and showed that it is capable of fulfilling the deadlines of the activities and to recover from failures efficiently. Thus, it seems interesting to integrate Heracles approach on real schedulers.
