Fall Creek Falls 2010
UT Memphis Health Science Center, Freeman Auditorium, 930 Madison Bldg.
Co-design for Extreme-scale Computing
Computing resources at the petascale offer unprecedented opportunity for scientific breakthroughs in areas critical to our Nation. Advancements in computing technology and access to these petascale computing resources bring computational modeling and simulation to bear on energy, climate change, national security, and everyday life. Ever-changing hardware and software bring new challenges and opportunities.
The goal of the Fall Creek Falls Conference is to bring together experts from the National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS), university partners, NCCS users, other centers, industry, and government to focus on and discuss in depth the latest advances and challenges in the computational sciences. The 2010 theme is co-design for extreme-scale computing.
The 2010 conference will be held at the Freeman Auditorium in the 930 Madison Building on the UT Memphis Health Science Center campus. Each workshop will focus on a set of pressing issues in high-end computing, science, and engineering featuring presentations by distinguished scientists from across the Nation. The workshop is by invitation to faculty and staff and to selected graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Graduate students and postdocs will be invited to present their work in poster format during an evening session. The DoubleTree Hotel Memphis Downtown is located at 185 Union Avenue (901-528-1800; fax: 901-526-3226). The Memphis International Airport (MEM) is 10 miles (15 minute drive) from the Hotel (directions to hotel from airport).
The conference is by invitation only with registration open to the first 100 registrations online.
Note: A charter bus will transport participants from the DoubleTree hotel to the UT Memphis Health Science Center and back to the hotel each day. You will not need to rent a car and pay hotel parking each day nor fight city traffic!
ATTENTION: Poster presenters
Easels, clips, and hard backing (30" x 40") will be provided at the conference. Poster abstracts are to be included in abstract field of registration form. Electronic poster files are to be sent to Debbie McCoy via email attachment to email@example.com no later than one week prior to the conference (October 17, 2010). Extended abstracts, poster files, and presentations will be captured on a memory stick during each session to be linked to the website.
