Event Details

The OLCF and Oak Ridge National Laboratory are, once again, taking leadership roles in SC14, the 26th meeting of the annual Supercomputing Conference.

Taking place from November 16–21 in New Orleans, SC14 will bring professionals from the world’s leading supercomputing centers together with high-performance computing users, developers, and sponsors from academia, industry, and government laboratories around the world. The theme for SC14 conference is “HPC Matters.”

SC14 allows participants to share knowledge and plans through a wide variety of venues and events. These include tutorials, workshops, panel discussions, invited talks, research poster sessions, technical paper presentations, birds-of-a-feather sessions, and more.

In addition to their individual research interests, ORNL staff members have helped pave the way for this exciting event through participation in a variety of organizing committees, including HPC Ops staff member, Dustin Leverman, who is the current Chair for the Student Cluster Competition and NCCS Director of Operations, Jim Rogers, who is the Logistics/Equipment Co-Chair.

The OLCF team will also be immersed in the conference itself in a variety of activities and events. For example, birds-of-a-feather sessions, also known as BoFs, allow participants to gather and discuss topics of common interest. ORNL is providing several session moderators, including Technology Integration staff member, Sarp Oral, in the session “Lustre Community BoF: At the Heart of HPC and Big Data,” User Assistance specialist Fernanda Foertter in the session “Women in HPC: Mentorship and Leadership,” and the Scientific Computing Group Leader, Tjerk Straatsma, for the session “Application Readiness and Portability for Leadership Computing.”

Members of the OLCF will also be presenting several papers, including “Best Practices and Lessons Learned from Deploying and Operating Large-Scale Data-Centric Parallel File Systems,” which has been nominated as a Best Paper Finalist. ORNL staff members will also be busy in workshops, panels, and tutorials, both as moderators and presenters They will also present their research findings in paper presentations and posters.

The OLCF will also be participating on the exhibit floor, staffing Exhibition Booth #1939 in collaboration with other Department of Energy research laboratories. Please visit us there if you have the opportunity.
