Every year, the SC conference sessions features “Technology Thrusts” that showcase how HPC impacts new and emerging fields. For SC10, the Thrust areas are Climate Simulation, Heterogeneous Computing, and Data Intensive Computing. So to bring these Thrusts in focus, SC10 Plenary talks come straight from the people involved in this forward-thinking research.
We chose these plenary speakers because they have played pivotal roles in the fields we are highlighting at SC10, and are some of the most visionary and talented professionals in science and high-performance computing today,” said Barry V. Hess, SC10 General Chair and Deputy Chief Information Officer for Sandia National Laboratories. “These speakers are the best and brightest in the world, working in fields that have direct impact on the world and our place in it,” added Ricky Kendall, chair of the SC10 Technical Program and Group Leader for the Scientific Computing Group at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility. “The plenary talks are designed to stimulate new ideas, and to keep people thinking.”
Plenary speakers include:
- Bill Dally, Ph.D., Chief Scientist, NVIDIA
- Terry Davies, Ph.D., Research Fellow, UK Met Office
- Robert Jones, Ph.D., Project Director, Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE)
