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.

Controlling outbreaks of infectious diseases such as pandemic influenza is a top public health priority. EpiSimdemics is an implementation of a scalable parallel algorithm to simulate the spread of contagion in large (10^8 individuals), realistic social contact networks using individual-based models. It includes a rich language for describing public policy and agent behavior. We describe CharmSimdemics and evaluate its performance on national scale populations. Charm++ is a machine independent parallel programming system, providing high-level mechanisms and strategies to facilitate the task of developing highly complex parallel applications. Our design includes mapping of application entities to tasks and leveraging scalable communication, synchronization and load balancing strategies of Charm++. Our experimental results show that the Charm++ version achieves up to a 4-fold increase in strong scaling on 796 PEs and 3-fold increase in weak scaling on 512 PEs when compared to the MPI version.
