PLENARY / INVITED SPEAKERS
SC2000 plenary and invited speakers include the world’s leaders in HPNC research and applications. The Keynote Address promises to be unique and memorable. The four State-of-the-Field talks will continue the tradition of critical assessments about recent progress and future challenges in key areas of computing sciences. This year the focus will be on Cluster Systems, Computer Security, Numerical Methods, and Parallel Programming.
SC2000 is also beginning a new tradition, called Masterworks. The Masterworks track features Invited Speakers who will emphasize novel and innovative uses of HPNC in solving challenging problems in the real world. This track will highlight research-quality results that serve practical priorities. This year, the Masterworks track will include presentations on Computational Biology, Scalable Computing/Servers, Computer-Aided Engineering, Large Computing Platforms, and work by the winners of two prestigious IEEE computing awards. We hope that you find this track to be stimulating, and that it expands your understanding of just how broadly HPNC technology can benefit the larger scientific community and the general public.
It is expected that all of the plenary sessions will be webcast over the Internet, using the unique capabilities of SCinet 2000 to deliver high-quality audio and video broadcasts. Webcast events are indicated by this symbol in the Final Program and conference signage.
