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.


EVENT TYPE: Education

TIME: 3:30PM - 5:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Michael V. Mascagni

Presenter(s):Michael Mascagni


This session will provide participants with an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the Scalable Parallel Random Number Generators Library (SPRNG) as it can be used to investigate computational stochastic (Monte Carlo) applications. One of the indispensable and important ingredients for reliable and statistically sound calculations is a good source of pseudorandom numbers. The goal of the SPRNG project is to develop, implement, and test a scalable package for parallel pseudorandom number generation that will be easy to use on a variety of architectures, especially in large-scale parallel Monte Carlo applications. There will be material that allows students to "play with" and visualize certain pseudorandom number generators, and there will also be some examples of simple Monte Carlo computations that use SPRNG. Random number generation is based on simple recurrences; however, if improperly handled, these simple recurrences can produce very nonrandom output that can harm Monte Carlo results.
