As part of it’s preparations to deploy the data-intensive Gordon supercomputer in mid-2011, SDSC will host the Grand Challenges in Data-Intensive Discovery conference on October 26-28, 2010 at the UC San Diego campus.
We believe this conference will greatly benefit those doing research in data-intensive fields,” said Michael Norman, interim director of SDSC. “Gordon, and future systems like it, will open new opportunities across numerous areas of research, and it is important that such resources are utilized to their utmost capabilities.”
The conference already has an impressive lineup of speakers and registration is now open. Contributed talk and poster abstract submission are due September 16, 2010.
