The Hartree Centre will be attending SC16 (link opens in a new window), alongside the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Scientific Computing Department, in Salt Lake City, Utah, 13-18 November 2016. (link opens in a new window)

The world-renowned annual supercomputing conference will bring together experts in high performance computing, network storage and analysis from all over the world. We are pleased to be exhibiting again and to have several members of staff representing the centre in both the technical conference programme and workshops.

Researchers from the Hartree Centre’s energy efficient computing programme will be presenting two papers during a workshop on 14 November (link opens in a new window). Milos Puzovic will discuss work completed in collaboration with Lenovo and Cavium looking at the benefits quantifying energy use in a dense, shared memory high performance computing environment. Neil Morgan will also present a paper highlighting the group’s work with IBM to design a power management algorithm that can improve power consumption by implementing energy aware scheduling policies.

One of our application performance engineers, Sergi Siso will be running a practical tutorial (link opens in a new window) using demos on a variety of platforms to help users apply high performance computing more effectively in their field, on Monday 14 November, 8.30am-5.00pm. The hands-on tutorial will look at debugging and provide users with the necessary tools to improve performance on their systems.

On 18 November, Colin Morey, a systems architect for the Hartree Centre, will be participating a panel discussion (link opens in a new window) that will draw upon his experience in systems administration. Colin will talk about the development of high performance computing file systems to meet the demands of contemporary researchers. He will discuss the work he has completed on IBM Spectrum Scale and the ways in which the systems at the Hartree Centre are designed to support our portfolio of work.

You can also visit us at our exhibition stand (listed as STFC) throughout SC16 at booth 1137 to meet the team and find out more about our large scale high performance computing facilities and the projects we are working on using big data analytics and cognitive computing technologies.

SC16 will take place at Salt Palace Convention Centre, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA from November 13-18 2016. To find out more about the conference and keep up to date with what's on, follow @Supercomputing (link opens in a new window) on Twitter, or use #SC16 to get involved in the discussion!
