November 16 – 21, 2014 (All Day)
  • New Orleans, LA

Attend our tutorial, BOF sessions, and visit us in Booth #3649 to hear exciting news about the Globus research data management service.

For over two decades, the SC Conference has been the place to build and share the innovations that are making life-changing discoveries possible through innovative application of high-performance computing technologies. This year's conference will highlight the most original and fascinating scientific and technical applications from around the world, and will convene an unprecedented array of scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, students, programmers, system administrators, and developers.

Tutorial: Enhanced Campus Bridging via a Campus Data Service Using Globus and the Science DMZ

Monday November 17, 2014, 1:30-5:00 p.m.
Location: Room 394

Presenters: Steve Tuecke, Vas Vasiliadis, Raj Kettimuthu

Attendees will be introduced to Globus and have the opportunity for hands-on interaction installing and configuring the basic components of a research data management service. We will describe newly developed Globus services for data publication that address an increasingly common need at many campus libraries, and enable investigators to describe and share data sets with collaborators. The tutorial will help participants answer these questions: What services can I offer to researchers for managing large datasets more efficiently? How can I integrate these services into existing campus computing infrastructure? How should such services be delivered to minimize the impact on my infrastructure? What issues should I expect to face (e.g. security) and how should I address them?

Birds-of-a-Feather Session: Experiences in Delivering a Campus Data Service Using Globus

Wednesday November 19, 2014, 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Location: Room 298-99

Moderators: Ian Foster, Steve Tuecke, Rachana Ananthakrishnan

Please join us for an informal gathering of learning and discussion about Globus usage at various research institutions. This is a unique opportunity to share your Globus experiences with your peers. We will also provide a brief overview of new features and upcoming releases of our research data management service. If you're not using Globus on your campus this is a great forum to learn more about how others have implemented the service, and get answers to your questions. This BOF is targeted at research computing and campus IT management/staff who are currently using Globus or considering technologies for delivering data management services.

Birds-of-a-Feather Session: Computational and Data Challenges in Genomic Sequencing

Thursday November 20, 2014, 12:15-1:15 p.m.
Location: Room 273

Globus Genomics represented by: Ravi Madduri

As genomic sequencers proliferate, more HPC centers are assisting with genomic workflows, which are very different from traditional HPC workloads. Over time, these workflows have become vastly more complicated with the diversification of genomic sequencers, and their cumulative data footprint has risen significantly. To tackle the rising complexities, our goal is to build a community of scientists and infrastructure specialists to share common experiences and challenges. The discussion will be guided by real-time feedback both verbally and through this website. Engagement after SC will be explored.

Demonstration: Globus file transfer and sharing at University of Colorado, Boulder

Tuesday November 18, 2014, 4:30 p.m.
Wednesday November 19, 2014, 2:30 p.m.
Thursday November 20, 2014, 11:45 a.m.
Location: UC Boulder Booth #551

The University of Colorado, Boulder will be demonstrating how Globus is used on their campus for file transfer and sharing, as part of a campus data service. Please join them at one of the times above, or just stop by booth #551 anytime to learn more.
