Nominations sought for SC13 research exhibition

SC13, the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, is now accepting nominations for the SCinet Network Research Exhibition, to be held during the conference in November.

The NRE is soliciting proposals from research and industry participants for demonstrations of network testbeds, emerging network hardware, and advanced network intensive scientific applications.

Proposals should include a description of the technology and proposed demonstration.  A program committee comprised of networking experts as well as SCinet engineers will review proposals and work with participants to develop, customise, and integrate with SC13’s network infrastructure as appropriate.  

Submissions to the SC13 Network Research Exhibition may be up to two pages and should include the following:

  • An overview of the network research or technology to be demonstrated;
  • A statement of the relevance to the community and to science; and
  • A description of desired network resources, in SCinet and in global research and education networks.
