Supercomputing Conference 2011 (SC'11)
The Research Groups "Scientific Computing" (www.par.univie.ac.at) and "Theory and Applications of Algorithms" (cs.univie.ac.at/TAA/) at the Faculty of Computer Science organized a research exhibition at the SC11 conference (November 12--18, 2011, Seattle, Washington, USA). SC11 is sponsored by ACM and the IEEE Computer Society. With more than 10.000 participants, SC is the World's major event in Parallel and High Performance Computing.
Both research groups exhibited their research in the areas of parallel and distributed computing, Cloud and Grid computing, efficient algorithms (e.g., algorithms which exploit reconfigurable hardware architectures) and scientific applications. Demonstrations included the Vienna Cloud Environment, jSPACE, the European Union projects PEPPHER, VPH-Share, ADMIRE and AutoTune, high performance computing on FPGAs, and libNMF, a high performance library for data compression on the basis of nonnegative matrix factorizations.
