Indiana University showcases advanced computing tech at annual supercomputing conference

13 Nov 2014 Bloomington, New Orleans - At Supercomputing 2014, high performance computing (HPC) matters - now more than ever. For Indiana University (IU), HPC has been a top priority for nearly 20 years. IU will showcase its commitment to innovation in advanced computing and networking technologies at the Supercomputing 14 conference (SC14) in New Orleans from November 16 to 21. As the largest event of its kind, SC14 brings together leading scientists and researchers from around the globe, as well as representatives from top universities, companies and organisations in the supercomputing field.

IU's Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI) and Global Research Network Operations Center (GlobalNOC) will host the "Our legacy. Your future." exhibit in booth #1339. Attendees will be treated to a walking tour of emerging and revolutionary projects that advance the national research agenda in Big Data, cybersecurity, education and outreach, experimental systems, and networking. The tour will conclude with the 'Science On a Sphere' exhibit, a spherical visualization technology displaying diverse datasets from the HathiTrust Research Center, IU School of Fine Arts, and GlobalNOC.

"For Indiana University scientists and researchers, innovation is more than a buzzword - it's a way of life", stated Craig Stewart, PTI executive director and associate dean of IU Research Technologies. "At SC14, IU will continue to distinguish itself with a full line-up of exhibits from PTI and the GlobalNOC - two world-class organisations driven by one mission: solving the challenges of tomorrow, today."

The IU team also continues its leadership role in organizing SC14. Matt Link, director of systems for IU Research Technologies, serves on the conference planning committee as its infrastructure chair. Additionally, IU network engineers will continue a decades-long tradition of operating SCinet, a leading-edge network equipped with OpenFlow-capable switches from vendors such as IBM. SCinet will address the high performance computing, storage and networking needs of all SC14 exhibitors and attendees.

Visitors to IU's booth can engage in a variety of demonstrations and presentations, including:

  • The National Center for Genome Analysis Support: Bioinformatics and cyberinfrastructure support for biologists, by Bill Barnett and Tom Doak
  • Polar cyberinfrastructure, by Richard Knepper and Matt Standish
  • Low-energy/extreme environments computing, by Richard Knepper
  • Campus bridging, by Craig Stewart and Richard Knepper
  • Ready Set Robots!: Building a strategy around LEGO Mindstorms and computer programming, by Robert Ping and Therese Miller
  • Immersive tools to support interactive data-intensive visualization, by IU's Advanced Visualization Laboratory
  • Photosynthesis in action: The living canvas, by Margaret Dolinsky and Roger Hangarter
  • GlobalNOC Worldview, by the Global Research Networks Operations Center
  • Supporting science gateways, by Marlon Pierce and Surresh Maru
  • International Networks at Indiana University, by Jennifer Schopf
  • Science On a Sphere, by IU's Advanced Visualization Lab

In addition, attendees can stop by the IU booth for presentations by leading experts in Big Data and cybersecurity:

  • The HathiTrust Research Center: Large-scale text mining and visualization on the HathiTrust Digital Library Corpus, by Beth Plale, science director for PTI
  • Cybersecurity for HPC and science, by Von Welch, director for IU's Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research

IU will also have a strong presence at the main conference. Events, discussions, and workshops will take place at the following times:

  • VISTech workshop: Visualization Infrastructure and Systems Technology, Eric Wernert: November 17, 9am to 5:30pm
  • From Big Data to the Long Tail: Publishing Computational Data, Beth Plale: November 18, 5:30pm to 7pm
  • GCE14: 9th Gateway Computing Environments Workshop, Marlon Pierce: November 21, 8:30am to 12pm
  • ROI from Academic Supercomputing, Craig Stewart: November 21, 10:30am to 12pm
