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.

Punctuated Equilibrium at Exascale

SESSION: Punctuated Equilibrium at Exascale

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Ronald G. Minnich, Lee Ward

ROOM:WSCC 3A

ABSTRACT:
Until the proposed U.S. Department of Energy Exascale Initiative becomes official, the path and approach of the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Advanced Simulation and Computing program for the next decade will be "evolutionary": how we might bend or adapt existing technologies to serve as a basis and environment for computing at Exascale? Many believe that such an approach is sub-optimal, that the unique problems or unprecedented scale represent an opportunity to reexamine past choices, or that the "evolutionary" approach will introduce significant software engineering risks, without complementary mitigation. In this interactive panel, composed of DOE/NNSA researchers, we will present some thoughts on alternative out-of-the-box or "revolutionary" options, actively solicit ideas from the audience, and moderate a group discussion between the panel and audience on the topic. The scope is broad, encompassing programming environments, altered application strategies, architecture, I/O. on-system and real-time data triage and analysis, power management, and operations.
