Hi, all. This is Michael Wong. I am at the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, commonly called SC 08, courtesy of IBM
I am specifically here to participate in the OpenMP sessions, where we have a booth, a BOF, and other discussion panels.
Over the next few posts, I hope to bring you some of the exciting events that are going on at this conference.
Looking at the program, there are a number of sessions aimed at Parallel Computing. If there are sessions you would like me to report from, drop me a note through this post and I can see what I can do.
On the flight down, let me just say that the last direct flight from Toronto (where I come from) to Austin was like a reunion of technologists as nearly everyone on the plane was attending SC 08. I recognized people from almost every software/hardware company that is active in this area. It was an interesting high-tech flight.
Normally, there is no direct flight from Toronto to Austin, and it takes multiple stops to get here. I am sure they didn't put together a direct flight just for us for SC 08.
(Actually, I learned on the plane that the direct flight started a year ago by Air Canada!)
