SC10 Convenes in New Orleans November 13-19

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 12, 2010

SC10 Convenes in New Orleans November 13-19
SC10 showcases the fastest, biggest computers on the planet and will be supported by SCinet, the most powerful, advanced technology network ever built, providing bandwidths of about 260 Gigabits per second (Gbps) in the Morial Convention Center for the duration of the conference

WHAT: SC10, the 23rd Annual Conference of high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM)

WHERE: New Orleans Morial Convention Center (NOMCC)

WHEN: November 13-19, 2010

DETAILS: SC10, sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society and ACM, will take place in New Orleans November 13-19 at the NOMCC. SC10 is an international conference devoted to high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis that brings together engineers, educators, scientists, programmers, researches and many more experts in the supercomputing field. More than 11,000 attendees are expected to attend this year’s conference.

The SC10 networking infrastructure, called SCinet will be the fastest and most advanced network in the world during its eight-day lifespan. Partnering with the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative and computing staff members from Louisiana State University, SCinet will operate at more than 260 Gbps and will accommodate the meeting’s 11,000 attendees and exhibitors. SCinet, which is built each year by volunteers from more than 75 companies and institutions, is 260,000 times faster than the average home network. Gbps is a measure of the capacity of data in a network, and 260 Gbps is enough bandwidth to transmit the contents of the entire Library of Congress in under 30 seconds.

SC10’s exhibition hall will feature the latest breakthroughs in computing and exhibits from international participants representing academia, industry and government research organizations. As of October, SC10 had 320 exhibitors: 144 research exhibitors and 183 industry exhibitors.

Scientific leaders and talented professionals such as Terry Davies, Ph.D., Research Fellow, at the United Kingdom Meteorological Office; and Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE) Project Director Robert Jones, Ph.D., will address advanced visualization technologies, projects in environmental science and climate change research, regional grid computing infrastructures and new ideas that keep people thinking.

IEEE Computer Society is the world’s largest association for the advancement of technology with 85,000 members. ACM is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, with more than 90,000 members worldwide. SC10 will be the 23rd conference devoted to high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis and this year’s meeting is set to generate more than $13 million for the local economy.
