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 possibility of hardware failures occurring during the execution of application software continues to increase along with the scale of modern systems. Existing parallel development approaches cannot effectively recover from these errors except by means of expensive checkpoint/restart files. As a result, many CPU hours of scientific simulation are lost due to hardware failures. Relentless Computing is a data-oriented approach to software development that allows for many classes of distributed and parallel algorithms, from no data-sharing to intense data-sharing, to be solved in both loosely- and tightly- coupled environments. Each process requires no knowledge of the current runtime status of the others to begin contributing, meaning that the execution pool can shrink and grow, as well as recover from hardware failure, automatically. We present motivations for the development of Relentless Computing, how it works, examples of using Relentless Computing to solve several types of problems, and initial scaling results.
