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.
Support for Experimental Computer Science Workshop
SESSION: Support for Experimental Computer Science Workshop
EVENT TYPE: Workshop
TIME: 9:00AM - 3:00PM
Organizer(s):Kate Keahey, Frederic Desprez
ABSTRACT: The ability to conduct consistent, controlled and repeatable large-scale experiments in all areas of computer science related to parallel, large-scale or distributed computing and networking is critical to the future and development of Computer Science. Yet conducting such experiments is still too often a challenge for researchers, students and practitioners due to unavailability of dedicated resources, inability to create controlled experimental conditions, and variability in software. Availability, repeatability, and open sharing of electronic products are all still a challenge. This workshop will bring together scientists involved in building and operating two infrastructures dedicated to supporting Computer Science experiments, Grid 5000 in France and Future Grid in the United States, to discuss challenges and solutions in this space. Our objectives are to share experiences and knowledge related to supporting large-scale experiments conducted on experimental infrastructures, solicit requirements, and discuss methodologies and opportunities created by emerging technologies.
