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.

Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulations are among the most accurate ab initio methods describing the many-particle systems properties. Computations perform accesses to an ensemble data structure describing the system quantum state. The ensemble data grows rapidly with the system size and desired resolution. For leadership-scale simulations, this structure requires more space than is provided within current and future compute nodes. Global Arrays provides a global address space programming model that allows the aggregation of the memory of several nodes, providing the space needed to increase the capabilities of QMC. We have extended the QMCPack package with an automated layer for managing ensemble data that is built on top of GA. Using this system, we have performed simulations of van der Waals systems. We present these results and use this simulation to characterize the performance of our data management layer and evaluate the effectiveness of several techniques for managing communication overhead.
