SPCL at Supercomputing (SC13)

Supercomputing is the premier conference in high performance and parallel computing. With more than 10,000 attendees, it’s also the largest and highest-impact conference in the field. Literally everybody is there. Torsten summarized the role of the conference in a blog poster over at CACM.

SPCL had a great year at Supercomputing 2013 (SC13)! We’ve been involved in multiple elements of the technical program:

  1. Three paper talks (Alexandru, Andrew, Robert) in the technical papers program
  2. Two posters (Aditya, Robert) in the posters program
  3. SPCL researchers received three awards
  4. Torsten gave a keynote at the ExaMPI’13 workshop
  5. Torsten co-presented a well-attended (~50 people) tutorial on advanced MPI programming
  6. Torsten revealed the 2nd Green Graph 500 List at the Graph 500 BoF
  7. Torsten co-organized the Emerging Technologies program
