HLRS at SC15

23 October 2015

LRHLRS will participate in this year’s Supercomputing Conference (SC15), which will take place in Austin, Texas, USA, from 15 to 20 November 2015. At the annually recurring international exhibition and conference on high-performance computing (HPC), networking, storage, and analysis, HLRS will exhibit at booth #343. One topic of major interest to the HPC community will certainly be HLRS’s recently installed HPC-system Hazel Hen (Rpeak: 7.42 PFlops), while Virtual Reality presentations on a 3D rear projection on the HLRS booth are bound to draw the attention of SC visitors. In particular will HLRS staff showcase how HPC is getting increasingly important in the reconstruction of crime scene scenarios: on site, they will analyze blood stains using interactive simulations and visualize the results using Augmented Reality.

Furthermore, HLRS staff will give presentations, speeches, and will participate in special interest group sessions. For example, Dr. Rolf Rabenseifner will act as co-speaker at the SC15-turorial on "MPI+X - Hybrid Programming on Modern Compute Clusters with Multicore Processors and Accelerators" (Sunday, Nov. 15, 8.30am - 12.00pm, Room 16AB), and Vladimir Marjanovic will be one of three presenters at the BoF session „High Performance Geometric Multigrid (HPGMG): an HPC Benchmark for Modern Architectures and Metric for Machine Ranking” (Wednesday, Nov. 18, 5.30pm - 7.00pm, Room 18CD)
