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.

Data intensive computing has the potential to change biosurveillance. Biosurveillance requires the ability to ‘connect the dots’ and inform decision makers in near real-time. To do this effectively, computers need to handle information found on the web as diverse as DNA sequence and social media posts. A key challenge to process the web in near real-time is the rapid conversion of petabytes of raw information into a semantically rich and query-able knowledgebase that serves decision support needs. We present a novel architecture that combines: (1) parallel web crawlers guided by biological ontologies to extract relevant information, (2) a petascale cache to store, classify, index and cluster those portions of the web relevant to biosurveillance, and (3) a semantic store to integrate diverse sources of data, guide new searches and serve as a platform for data analysis and user applications. A poster and handouts will be available at the conference.
