Invited speakers announced for Extreme Scaling Workshop – Heterogeneous Computing
August 15-16, 2013 in Boulder, Colorado
Online registration form: http://www.ncsa.illinois.edu/Conferences/XSEDE/xscale13/register.html


We are pleased to announce that Joe Curley from Intel and Steven Parker from NVIDIA are the invited speakers at this year’s Extreme Scaling Workshop. With years of experience as industry leaders in heterogeneous computing, both speakers will be discussing their understandings of technology trends and views for the future of this type of HPC.

The annual workshop will address large scale heterogeneous computing through a series of talks and discussions for sharing experiences and successes making use of the new types resources of GPUs and many-core processors.

The NSF-funded Blue Waters and eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) projects are hosting the seventh in a series of Extreme Scaling workshops Aug. 15-16, 2013 in Boulder, Colorado. Systems such as Blue Waters, Stampede, and Titan take a major step from modest scale, heterogeneous test beds and prototypes to world-class, extreme-scale heterogeneous computing systems. The workshop is set up to provide a sufficient period of time for science and engineering teams to gain understanding on utilizing these systems to advance their applications while still having time to exchange and learn best practices.

A full workshop agenda is available online at https://www.xsede.org/web/xscale/agenda.

A registration fee of $175 covers the cost of food and beverages provided at the workshop: breakfast, lunch and dinner on Thursday, and breakfast and lunch on Friday. A block of rooms has been reserved at Millennium Harvest House Boulder, where the workshop will be held. To receive the workshop rate of $135/per night plus taxes call the hotel (303 443 3850) and use the blocking code 1308NCSAIL to book your room.

Participants are responsible for the cost of their own travel and hotel accommodations as well as making their own travel arrangements. There is a shuttle available to transport people between the Denver airport and Boulder for about $33/person, and there is public transportation available from the airport for about $12. Additional details about housing and travel are available on the web site.
