The Fastest Network Connecting the Fastest Computers
SC15 will once again host of one of the most powerful and advanced networks in the world - SCinet. Created each year for the conference, SCinet brings to life a very high-capacity network that supports the revolutionary applications and experiments that are a hallmark of the SC conference. SCinet will link the convention center to research and commercial networks around the world. In doing so, SCinet serves as the platform for exhibitors to demonstrate the advanced computing resources of their home institutions and elsewhere by supporting a wide variety of bandwidth-driven applications including supercomputing and cloud computing.
Volunteers from academia, government and industry work together to design and deliver the SCinet infrastructure. Industry vendors and carriers donate millions of dollars in equipment and services needed to build the local and wide area networks. Planning begins more than a year in advance of each SC conference and culminates in a high-intensity installation in the days leading up to the conference.
For SC15, SCinet will have two opporunities to explore up-and-coming topics in the high-performance networking community of SC through the Network Research Exhibition (NRE), and returning again from its inaugural appearance in 2014, the INDIS workshop.
In addition, SCinet created a new Diversity Program, funded by the NSF, to fund U.S. women in their early to mid career to participate in SCinet to get hands-on training and build their professional network. More on the Call for Participation is here.
The NRE is SCinet's forum for displaying new or innovative demonstrations in network testbeds, emerging network hardware, protocols, and advanced network intensive scientific applications that will stretch the boundaries of a high-performance network.
NRE's call for demos will be open until August 1, 2015.
In SC14, SCinet joined the SC Tech Program with its first annual workshop, Innovating the Network for Data-Intensive Science (INDIS). This workshop showcased both Demonstrations and Technical Papers highlighting important developments in high-performance networking. With participants from research, industry, and government, this workshop discussed topics related to network testbeds, emerging network hardware, protocols, and advanced network intensive scientific applications. The second annual INDIS workshop will again be a part of the SC15 Tech Program. More information will be available about the INDIS workshop. Read more about the SC14 SCinet workshop here.
