RSSI Call for Abstracts

The HPRC user community is invited to participate in RSSI'06 and share experience, insights and research results related to this emerging technology. We also invite HPRC industry to participate. Abstracts for presentations or posters that describe innovations in the past year, application benchmarks, future research and development and suggestions for academic collaboration are very welcome.

Some suggested topics are listed below, but consideration also will be given to other relevant topics. Presentations or posters that target the scientific applications community (e.g., floating point codes; HPRC software development using high-level programming languages; methodologies and tools for HPRC software development that allow the scientist to focus on science instead of programming) will be given the highest consideration.

Topic List

1.0 Algorithms and applications
1.1 Performance results using real applications and data sets
1.2 HPRC algorithm and application considerations
1.3 Case studies
1.4 Other (please specify)
