Date: March 9-12, 2009
Location: Boulder, CO
Host: National Center for Atmospheric Research

This year's conference will focus on the challenge of breaking the petascale barrier and examine the promise of new technologies such as multi-core processors, acceleration coprocessors, advanced interconnects and high-performance I/O solutions. It will also explore the potential scaling and performance modifications necessary for systems, data and applications to achieve petascale-class performance.

The four-day event will feature a broad range of presentations and papers from HPC and large-scale cluster computing professionals in industry, academia, and government. Speakers will address efforts to integrate and develop science and engineering applications for large-scale clusters, to achieve maximum performance and scalability. A full day of tutorials will be offered as part of the overall program. The conference attracts the world's top practitioners of clustered computing who gather to share experiences and update colleagues on the latest developments in the field.

Highlights of the 2009 conference include keynotes by Omar Ghattas, of the University of Texas at Austin, Bill Camp, from Intel, Pratap Pattnaik, from IBM's TJ Watson Research Center, and Marc Tremblay, from Sun Microsystems, Inc. There will also be a Special Session on Next Generation Computing and a Panel on Accelerator Strategies.
