Welcome to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Beowulf Bash. For those of you who have no idea what this page is about or why it is here, please see [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hitchhiker%27s_Guide_to_the_Galaxy here] for an explanation of the overall scheme. Once you have read the description, go and buy the ''Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'' (the complete set) and read the books. Finally, Google Beowulf Bash to get some background on the best party at the annual [http://sc12.supercomputing.org/ SC] convention. Once you have a firm grasp of both topics, realize that they have nothing to do with each other, but you may get a towel and some refreshments if you show up at the bash this year.

[edit] So Long And Thanks For All The FLOPS

Adaptive 400x90.jpg Intersect360 400x90.jpg

Welcome to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Beowulf Bash. For those of you who have no idea what this page is about or why it is here, please see here for an explanation of the overall scheme. Once you have read the description, go and buy the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the complete set) and read the books. Finally, Google Beowulf Bash to get some background on the best party at the annual SC convention. Once you have a firm grasp of both topics, realize that they have nothing to do with each other, but you may get a towel and some refreshments if you show up at the bash this year.

In the words of Thomas Sterling, father of Beowulf:

"Douglas Adams was just fabulous. I think he would’ve appreciated the ironies of Beowulf clusters, how the inmates had taken over the asylum. There’s no better example of an Improbability Computer than a Beowulf cluster."

Moving on. We want to thank our main sponsors, Adaptive Computing and Intersect360 Research for this year's event. Click their links to find out more about how these two companies contribute to the HPC community.

Party Location: See map with directions or consult Shallow Thought
