Hungry For Exascale ?
If you are attending SC11 and would like to a) eat a free breakfast, b) listen to experts answer questions and talk about exascale, c) try to win an ipad2 and, d) see what I actually look like in person, then please sign up for the Panasas and SICORP special event; The Road to Exascale Computing.
The event is sponsored by Panasas, the leader in high performance parallel storage, and SICORP, a Panasas Partner for implementing Panasas-based solutions. You are invited to a special breakfast event during SC11 where you can engage with industry luminaries who are on their way to making exascale computing a reality. Details below.
Your host for this complimentary breakfast will be Panasas CEO, Faye Pairman. The morning will feature a panel discussion to be moderated by HPC writer/practitioner (and ClusterMonkey), Douglas Eadline, and will include notable HPC innovators from Panasas and Los Alamos National Lab (LANL).
