SCinet Network Research Program

In 1991, the SC conference created SCinet as a leading edge, high-performance network assembled each year as a platform for exhibitors and attendees to demonstrate new HPC innovations. As the research community begins to face the increasing challenges of data-intensive science, the SC conference - now more than ever before - is seeking to highlight major network research initiatives that will be critical in this new paradigm. Just as computational researchers are examining scalable computing and storage models, network researchers are developing innovations for improving science data transport that connect these computational resources.

Building on the success of programs like the SCinet Research Sandbox, XNet and the Bandwidth Challenge, the SCinet Network Research Program will be a new cross-cutting conference program designed to highlight breakthrough network research developments through live demonstrations on the SCinet infrastructure.  For SC13, network researchers are encouraged to submit proposals for network research demonstrations that may also tie to technical papers, panels or poster submissions, as well as planned activities in the general SC exhibit area.

Check back for additional details to be posted in the coming weeks.
