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.

ABSTRACT:
The massive computational cost for resolving all turbulent scales makes a direct numerical simulation of the underlying Navier-Stokes equations impossible in most engineering applications. We present recent advances in parallel adaptive finite element methodology that enable us to efficiently compute time resolved approximations for complex geometries with error control. In this paper we present a LES simulation of turbulent flow past a full car model, where we adaptively refine the unstructured mesh to minimize the error in drag prediction. The simulation was partly carried out on the new Cray XE6 at PDC/KTH where the solver shows near optimal strong and weak scaling for the entire adaptive process.
