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: Current interest from the HPC community in data-intensive computing, simpler programming models, in situ analytics, ad hoc data analysis, and interactive control of long computations offers new opportunities for engagement between the database and HPC communities. The relational model for databases revolutionized business data management, leading to a $30B market and a vibrant startup community. The key idea is to “push computation to the data,” insulating applications from details of data representation and system architecture while affording runtime optimizations unavailable to compile-time techniques. The techniques of this approach – a rigorous data model, declarative query languages, cost-based optimization, logical and physical data independence – have been applied to new data types (streams, graphs, arrays), new applications (imaging, genomics, GIS, finance) and new platforms (embedded, GPGPUs, cloud). But this approach has only been minimally explored in HPC contexts. In this workshop, we invite position papers that explore this space.
