Colocated Meetings & Workshops

The following meetings and workshops are colocated with the 2015 Internet2 Technology Exchange and available to anyone, including meeting attendees.

REFEDs

Sunday, October 4 (9:00am–5:00pm)
For registration information, see the 2015 Internet2 Technology Exchange Registration page.

Your registration includes morning and afternoon breaks, and lunch. Breakfast is on your own.

REFEDS articulates the mutual needs of research and education identity federations worldwide. Many participants represent national identity federations. For more on REFEDs, see refeds.org.

 

NET+ Security and Identity Portfolio Development Workshop

 

Thursday, October 8 (8:00am–5:00pm)
For registration information, see the 2015 Internet2 Technology Exchange Registration page.

Your workshop registration includes morning/afternoon refreshment breaks, and lunch. Breakfast is on your own.

Audience: Chief information security officers (CISOs), information security staff, other campus IT staff

Outcomes: Thorough review of the information security aspects of the Internet2 NET+ program, feedback on how information security is included in NET+, and direction for changes to the portfolio over the next year.

Description: The newly formed NET+ Security and Identity portfolio, led by a former higher education CISO, is aimed at rapid development of production cloud services for the higher education community to enhance operations, security, research, and teaching on campus. The shape of this portfolio and the services under development, as well as gaps and areas that need development, are dependent on community feedback and input.

An Introduction to High Throughput Computing for Users and System Administrators

Thursday, October 8 (8:30am–3:30pm)
For registration information, see the 2015 Internet2 Technology Exchange Registration page.

Your workshop registration includes morning/afternoon breaks and lunch. Breakfast is on your own.

Description: High-throughput computing (HTC) is characterized by location-independent, opportunistic execution of single-node multi-core jobs, and is a method for efficiently using existing computing resources. This workshop will introduce you to HTC and, through hands-on learning, you will learn how to set-up and run large technical workloads as HTC jobs on your own campus and through the Open Science Grid (OSG). The workshop is aimed at two groups: researchers and graduate students who want to accelerate their computing, and system administrators who are responsible for meeting research computing needs on their campus. In this workshop, you will learn how HTC systems are implemented and managed, and the basics of how to run multiple jobs in a scientific computing workflow.

Agenda:

An Introduction to High Throughput Computing - Agenda

International Industrial SUP logo6th International Industrial Supercomputing Workshop (IISW)

Wednesday, October 7 (12:00–5:45pm followed by dinner at 6:00pm), through Thursday, October 8 (8:00am–3:30pm)
Please note that IISW 2015 participation is by invitation only. To register, please email Alan Chalker.

Your workshop registration includes Wednesday lunch and afternoon break (in conjunction with the Technology Exchange), and dinner (location TBD), and on Thursday, continental breakfast, morning and afternoon breaks, and lunch.

Overview: The sixth annual International Industrial Supercomputing Workshop is being hosted jointly by Pankaj Shah, Ohio Supercomputer Center/OSC, and Suzy Tichenor, Oak Ridge National Laboratory/ORNL, and is being held in conjunction with the 2015 Internet2 Technology Exchange.

These annual workshops provide invited attendees the opportunity to meet, share best practices, and network in order to improve collaboration. With this year’s workshop located in the U.S., the agenda will also address unique national and regional approaches that U.S. centers are taking to help expand industrial use of HPC.

Sponsors: Internet2 and the Ohio Supercomputer Center (a member of the Ohio Technology Consortium of the Ohio Board of Regents) are sponsoring the workshop and covering the majority of the costs. Attendees only need to pay for their own travel and hotel costs. Since the workshop is being held in conjunction with the 2015 Internet2 Technology Exchange, attendees are encouraged to consider participating in that event as well.

Logistics: IISW 2015 is colocated with the 2015 Internet2 Technology Exchange. See Hotel & Travel for lodging information. Meals will be provided as outlined in the agenda. Wifi and power outlets will be provided in the meeting room.

About IISW: The International Industrial Supercomputing Workshop is an annual gathering of industrial partnership programs from leading HPC Centers around the world. These centers, which have traditionally been the domain of government and academic users, have in recent years created programs and projects to help provide HPC systems and expertise to industry.  A number of prominent studies indicate that supercomputing is critical to the competiveness of industry. Benefits include reduced product development time, creation of higher quality products, and faster time to market. Via these series of workshops, leading HPC centers can share policies, strategic plans, success stories, and technical issues related to industrial supercomputing, broaden knowledge, and have an opportunity to expand industrial supercomputing service activities.
