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.

High-resolution display environments consisting of many individual displays arrayed to form a single visible surface are commonly used to present large scale data. Using these displays often involves a control paradigm where interactions become cumbersome and non-intuitive. By combining high-resolution displays with multi-touch and gesture interactive hardware, researchers can explore data more naturally, efficiently and collaboratively. This fusion of technology is necessary to effectively use tiled-display environments and mediate their primary weakness - interaction. In order to realize these objectives, a team at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) developed an economical display system using a combination of commodity hardware and customized software. In this paper we explain the requirements, design process, functions and best practices for constructing such displays. In addition, we explain how these systems can be used effectively with application examples.
