XSEDE Conference Announced

The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment conference of 2012 to be held in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

XSEDE12, the first conference of the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, will be held July 16-19, 2012, at the InterContinental hotel in downtown Chicago.

XSEDE, which has replaced the former TeraGrid project as the largest NSF-funded provider of advanced cyberinfrastructure services for the United States open research community, is continuing the successful TeraGrid conferences with XSEDE12.

According to the announcement, the XSEDE12 conference program will include tutorial sessions, keynote and plenary speakers, a visualization showcase, poster sessions, and technical sessions. Features that are new to the conference include technical sessions focused on software, including software vendors discussing their products relative to the XSEDE environment, software engineering for XSEDE, and challenges of delivering and using commercial software in the XSEDE environment.

The program committee is still being formed, and those interested in volunteering are asked to send email to xsede12-info@xsede.org. Visit the XSEDE website at http://www.xsede.org/xsede12 for more information, including a call for papers, as it becomes available.
