The Emerging Technologies Track is a new element of the Technical Program at SC13. It is aimed at providing a showcase on the SC13 show floor for novel projects at a national or international scale. It is different from other aspects of the technical program, such as contributed presentations and posters, in that it will provide a forum for discussing large-scale, long-term efforts in high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis, rather than a recent research result that such a project might have achieved. Emerging Technologies will provide space in a booth at an attractive central location of the SC13 show floor. The booth will facilitate displays, presentations, and spontaneous discussions among participants and visitors.
Possible presentation styles are manifold and can be chosen by the proposers. Emerging Technologies welcomes exhibitions of real hardware prototypes and demonstrations of software as well as project presentations in poster form, animated displays, and scheduled presentations or discussions. Successful projects will display future technologies with the potential to influence computing and society as a whole.
Submissions are accepted through the submission website. Each submission should describe the project scope in detail and provide references to external resources (newspaper articles, webpages etc.). Additional materials, such as prototype photos are very welcome. Each project also needs to describe how much space it would require and how it would use the space provided (include any additional requirements such as A/V equipment or network connectivity). Projects will be selected based on a peer-review process with a single round of reviews.

Submission Deadline: July 31, 2013
Notification: August 31, 2013
Submissions are accepted as single pdf including all important elements such as references, photos of prototypes, a description of the project etc. We suggest that proposals use the following structure:
- Description of the project (including references and importance to SC community)
- Space requirements (i.e., how much space, what kind of displays, posters, video walls, standing displays, size, photos, additional security requirements, and additional equipment requirement, e.g., network connections or displays)
- Staffing (would the project be able to have somebody in the booth, perhaps part time?)
- Presentation (would you be willing to give one or two talks in a theater describing your project?)
- Miscellaneous (everything that is important to add and doesn't fit in the categories above)
