SC10 is now accepting submissions for its technical program.

SC10, the premier international conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, is now accepting submissions for its technical program. The 23rd annual conference in the series, SC10 will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana from November 13-19, 2010. Over 11,000 attendees from industry, academia and government are anticipated.

Drawing on expertise from the international HPC community, SC10 will build on over two decades of success offering a broad spectrum of technical presentations and discussions including rigorously peer-reviewed papers, panels, tutorials, workshops and posters showcasing the latest findings from laboratories and research institutions around the world.

This year, the technical program encourages participants to focus on one of three thrust areas to be featured prominently at the conference: climate simulation, heterogeneous computing and data-intensive computing.

Climate simulation spotlights the tremendous importance of research in global climate change, including HPC-based climate simulation techniques which help scientists understand global warming, climate change and other environmental processes.

SC10’s other thrusts highlight important emerging HPC technologies. Heterogeneous computing covers the technological and research advances in software that are required for accelerator-based computing, which is now occurring on large-scale machines and could propel supercomputing to the exascale level, where machines are capable of running a million trillion calculations per second.

As scientists depend more and more on supercomputing in their research, they are generating massive amounts of data that must be shared, stored and analyzed by teams of remotely located collaborators. This global trend underlines the importance of data-intensive computing, SC10s third main thrust, highlighting research into innovative solutions for managing data across distributed high-performance computing systems, especially hardware and software requirements for effective data transfer.

Submissions for most areas of the SC10 technical program will be accepted beginning March 1. Technical paper abstracts are due April 2 and final papers as well as submissions for Tutorials and the ACM Gordon Bell Prize are due April 5.

Other immediate submissions deadlines include: Workshops, which are due April 15, 2010; the Student Cluster Competition, which is due by April 16, 2010; as well as Panel submissions, which are due April 26, 2010.
