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: In this BOF we want to discuss novel ways to overcome the complexity of Exascale computing systems through community-driven auto-tuners and optimization repositories.
Modern computing systems have reached unprecedented levels of complexity due to a large number of available design and optimization choices. Various auto-tuning and machine learning techniques have been proposed recently to effectively tackle this complexity. However, current architectures, applications and tools are not yet well adapted to such automatic tuning. Furthermore, data mining techniques require collection of a massive amount of data that is not trivial to process.
Therefore, we are developing collaborative repositories and techniques that can transparently distribute characterization and optimization of applications and architectures among multiple users. We believe that such collaborative approaches will be vital for developing efficient Exascale computing systems and software.
With this BOF, we would like to share our experience with some existing frameworks and how to improve them.
