The deadline to submit abstracts and papers to the Science, Technology, Gateways, and Training, Education and Outreach tracks of TeraGrid 2011: Extreme Digital Discovery has been extended from April 15 to April 22.
Science: Submissions should demonstrate the impact of the TeraGrid through scientific results or the emergence of new communities. Submissions should: articulate the scientific problem; describe the scientific and computational methods (algorithms, techniques, software) and TeraGrid resources used; and present results, impact of the TeraGrid, and future plans.
Technology: Submissions should present technology developments and capabilities that enable increased performance, capability, productivity, and/or reliability of TeraGrid users, applications, and resources. Submissions should describe the technology in detail, discuss achieved or potential impact, and articulate future plans. Submissions describing work done on other large-scale cyberinfrastructures (e.g., OSG or DEISA) that is relevant to the TeraGrid will also be considered.
Gateways: Submissions should highlight either scientific successes from researchers using a gateway or technology approaches to gateway design, development, and enhancement. Gateway science submissions should briefly describe the scientific problem, the computational methods, TeraGrid resources used, and aspects of the gateway that makes this possible. Gateway technology submissions can address all types of technical solutions relevant to gateways-fault tolerance, accounting practices, the use of new technologies to reach new communities, novel interactive approaches to scheduling, and visualization, etc.
Training, Education, and Outreach (TEO): Submissions should represent innovative learning and workforce development applications of TeraGrid resources that help prepare current and future generations to advance scientific discovery. Submissions are especially encouraged that address the inclusion of under-represented communities (including women, minorities, and people with disabilities), institutions, and disciplines.
To submit, go to http://www.teragrid.org/tg11/submissions. Accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings, which will be archived by ACM.
TeraGrid ’11 will be held July 18-21 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The conference will showcase the capabilities, achievements, and impact of the TeraGrid in research and education and will also mark the beginning of the National Science Foundation’s eXtreme Digital Resources for Science and Engineering program.
