ComplexHPC Spring School 2011
- - HPDC Middleware, Environments, and Tools - -
May 9-13, 2011, VU University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Introduction and ScopeIn recent years, the application of high-performance and distributed computing has become increasingly widespread. Among the most widely available platforms to end-users are clusters, grids, and cloud systems. Such infrastructures currently are undergoing revolutionary change due to the integration of multi- and many-core technologies (e.g. GPUs), providing orders-of-magnitude speed improvements for a wide variety of compute kernels. These revolutionary changes come at a price for end-users, however:
Target AudienceThe ComplexHPC Spring School 2011 specifically targets doctoral and post-doctoral students in the general field of high-performance and distributed computing. Registration is required, and available for:
Posters and DemosAll participants are invited - or: strongly encouraged - to bring a poster covering their current research efforts for presentation during an informal poster-&-demo-&-drinks session at the end of the first day of the Spring School. We specifically would like to urge participants to also consider giving a live demonstration of any working system in the general ComplexHPC domain, to highlight their own recent research results.
The First International ComplexHPC ChallengeFinally, as part of the Spring School we also organize the First International ComplexHPC Challenge - a 'competition' focussing on state-of-the-art solutions in the general domain of ComplexHPC. The Challenge winner will receive a special award + prize - and more importantly: visibility and recognition from your peers in the field.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Amsterdam during the ComplexHPC Spring School 2011!
