CCL Workshop 2012
"Scalable Software for Scientific Computing"Monday, June 11-12th, 2012 at the University of Notre Dame
The 2012 CCL workshop will be held June 11-12th on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. The theme of this year's workshop is Scalable Software for Scientific Computing. This workshop is an opportunity to learn more about scalable software from the CCL and other related projects, see how others are applying it to advance their research, and to provide some input into the direction of our research and software development. The workshop will be of interest to researchers, faculty, and students involved in either the scientific objectives or the software tools of scalable science.
The first day of the workshop will feature a lineup of experts in scalable scientific computing, particularly those with applications in the fields of bioinformatics, molecular dynamics, and high energy physics. These speakers will discuss their scientific objectives, present their current techniques for scalable computing, and reflect on the current software-related barriers to new discovery. The second day will consist of presentations from the CCL team on new developments in our software, followed by informal breakout sessions where you can meet with members of the CCL team to exchange ideas, get help with technical problems, and plan out future software developments.
