So, I’m trying to schedule my itenerary for supercomputing. Here is a very tentative schedule. There are some overlaps and items still missing. Plus in this I need to find time to head up to NAVO to see old co-workers and get a PoBoy at the Rocketeria. Sleep also might be nice. That and I need to make sure Justin gets plenty of opportunity to drag my drunk ass back to the hotel. (His own words)

SESSION: Petascale Computing Infrastructures for Science Engines

As Petascale compute systems start to move into production science facilities there are a number of associated challenges that centres and users face when making best use of these systems if they are to become productive science engines for research. Some issues that this community needs to address are, how to support the data intensive work associated with petascale computations, how to develop and promote best practices within the various communities, and how to build closer links between the users requirements and eResearch activity. We invite those who are about to begin to use, operate or plan Petascale facilities to attend and discuss with a group of their peers their proposed activities, anticipated challenges and solution ideas. It is hoped this will begin the process of sharing experiences and establishing best practices and bring together the necessary scientific users, centre staff and computational science researchers to address the key issues identified.
