eSCape2000 will explore the potential effects of the convergence of personal computing devices, the software infrastructure necessary to support them, and wireless connectivity and what it means to do “HPC Anywhere” in an event called eSCape 2000. The conference will provide a wireless infrastructure as part of SCinet 2000 to serve as a showcase for demonstrations of novel interfaces to HPC resources, data and applications. The tone of the event is that of a demonstration-not a competition-and the goal is to provide a forum for stimulating broad community discussions about how these new technologies will impact HPC. Participants are invited to demonstrate applications and technologies that they feel best illustrate how being able to reach “HPC Anywhere” will impact supercomputing and the people and industries that depend on supercomputing.
The event will be organized as a combination forum/permanent exhibit. The eSCape 2000 events will be held on the exhibit floor within a reserved section co-located with Research Gems. A presenter from each project will be available Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 – 11:00 AM during exhibit hours for a presentation and demonstration of their research project. In addition, each team will be provided space within the eSCape 2000 venue to set up a permanent poster describing the project. The poster exhibit will remain up for the duration of the exhibit to provide those who cannot attend one of the presentations the opportunity to learn about the project.
