The HPC Advisory Council has issued a Call for Speakers for their 2014 Switzerland Conference. The event takes place in Lugano March 31 – April 3, 2014.
The 2014 International Supercomputing Conference is now accepting submissions.
“The highlights include a great keynote by Dr. Williams (D-Wave), an announcement by Intel to update their Xeon Phi 22 nm co-processor to a new 14 nm (bootable) version called Knights Landing. Moreover, NVIDIA announced the Kepler K40 graphics/co-processor. The many interesting talks about (big) data visualization was another highlight.”
“The next few years will present a unique opportunity for the supercomputer vendors and developers to adopt new cloud tech and for the cloud-based Big Data analytics vendors and developers to adopt high performance computing (HPC) techniques. Both sets of folks understand that this is a really big deal. The dialog was amazing.”
In this video from SC13, Einer Rustad from Numascale describes the company’s innovative products enable you to build scalable shared memory systems from standard servers. The company recently announced the successful validation of the large shared memory NumaConnect cluster at University of Oslo in Norway, which was installed under a prototype PRACE study assessing emerging new technologies for European HPC.
