SC11 Seeks Disruptive Innovators

Submissions to the SC11 Disruptive Technologies (DT) Program are due July 22, 2011. As part of the SC conference series since 2006, DT seeks to examine new architectures and technologies that will significantly impact the high performance computing, networking, storage and data analysis ecosystem throughout the next five to 15 years, but have not yet emerged in current systems.

Disruptive technologies represent drastic innovations in current practices such that they have the potential to completely transform the HPC field as it currently exists–ultimately overtaking the leading technologies in the marketplace,” said Martin Swany, co-chair of Disruptive Technologies and Associate Professor at the University of Delaware. “SC continues to be the leading forum for showcasing not only the leading edge technologies in use today but for exploring these game-changing innovations that hold the promise of completely transforming the way we research and do business.”

New for this year, submissions to the Disruptive Technologies program can also demonstrated as part of the SCinet Research Sandbox (SRS). The SRS is designed to allow researchers to experimentally test and demonstrate their ideas on innovative network architectures, applications and protocols in the unique live environment of the SCinet network. This year, the SRS will provide researchers with access to over 100 Gigabits per second of capacity and will feature for the first time a 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps), multi-vendor OpenFlow network testbed connected from the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle to potentially several national research networks to provide wide area OpenFlow capabilities.

Disruptive Technology proposals can be submitted via the SC11 submissions site.
