If you’re in Texas and have a hankering for crude with your big compute, head over to Rice on Tuesday next week for the 2008 Oil and Gas High Performance Computing Workshop.
The Oil and Gas High Performance Computing Workshop is the second in what we hope will be a regular event. The workshop on Tuesday, March 4th, 2008 is the follow-on to the inaugural workshop organized at the 2007 SEG Annual Meeting in San Antonio. The spring 2008 workshop will be hosted by the Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology and the Energy and Environmental Systems Institute at Rice University. Our goal is that of creating an Oil and Gas HPC User Group that regularly meets to discuss industry specific needs and challenges and to engage in a dialog with HPC hardware and software vendors as well as academic research communities. The focus of this particular workshop is accelerators and hybrid computing, the future of parallel programming and tools, and storage and i/o (sic) solutions and needs associated with HPC systems deployed in oil and gas HPC environments.
Tip o’ the hat to reader Terrence Liao for the pointer.
