Conference



SC07 is the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis.

Following the traditions set with the first SC conference in 1988, SC07 is expanding the frontiers of High Performance Computation by introducing a new cluster challenge that combines the computation, networking, storage, and analysis elements into a single competition.

SC07 will host an exceptional technical program, tutorials, workshops, an expanded exhibits area, an exciting education program and many other activities. The SC conference series has grown to include scientists, researchers, software developers, network engineers, policy makers, corporate managers, CIOs and IT administrators from universities, industry and government from all over the world.

Attendees become immersed in the latest state-of-the-field developments in technology, applications, vendor products, research results, national policy and national/ international initiatives. SC07 is the one place attendees can see tomorrow’s technology being used to solve world-class challenge problems today.

The SC07 conference ties the program components together and demonstrates how high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis touch all disciplines to enhance people's ability to understand information and lead to new understanding, promote interdisciplinary projects, affect the educational process through the use of computers in modeling and simulation in the classroom, and solve heretofore unsolvable problems in nanoscience, biotechnology, climate research, astrophysics, chemistry, fusion research, drug research, homeland defense, nuclear technologies and many other fields.

SC07 provides attendees the opportunity to speak with industry and academic research leaders through the technical program, industry exhibits, research exhibits and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions.

The SC07 Education Program is designed to work with undergraduate faculty, administrators and college students to integrate computational science and the high performance computing and communications technologies highlighted through the SC Conference into the preparation of future scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and teachers.

We are initiating a new Broader Engagement program with the desired goal of increasing the participation of people from underrepresented groups in the SC Conference.

We look forward to your participation!

Broader Engagement


We are initiating a new Broader Engagement program with the desired goal of increasing the participation of individuals from groups that have traditionally been under-represented in high performance computing. BE with us at SC07!

SCinet


SCinet is the most advanced technology network built on site to enable world-class demonstrations and to support the annual SC conference. Designed and built entirely by volunteers from universities, government and industry, SCinet combines leading-edge hardware and high-speed wide-area communication links to provide conference exhibitors and attendees with world-class connectivity to national and international networks. SCinet features a high-performance production-quality network with direct wide area connectivity to many national and worldwide networks through peering relationships with principle networks, an Open Fabrics Network, and an extremely high performance experimental network, Xnet. In addition, SCinet will provide the foundation for conference programs ­ including the HPC Bandwidth Challenge and the HPC Analytics Challenge.

Volunteers from educational institutions, high-performance computing centers, network equipment vendors, US National Laboratories, research institutions, research networks and telecommunication carriers work together to design and deliver the SCinet networks. Industry vendors and carriers donate much of the equipment and services needed to build the LAN and WAN infrastructure. Planning begins more than a year in advance of each SC conference and culminates with a high-intensity installation just seven days before the conference begins.

Exhibitors please note: It is important when constructing your booth that you do not place heavy booth material on the fiber near the edge of your booth. To avoid damage to the network fiber taped to the exhibit hall floor, point-loads must not be positioned within 18" inside the booth boundary along all aisle ways. Use the links below to visit the SCinet web pages.

Education


The SC07 Education Program is designed to work with undergraduate faculty, administrators and college students to integrate computational science and the high performance computing and communications technologies highlighted through the SC Conference into the preparation of future scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and teachers.
