Visit Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at Booth 723 in the SCO9 Exhibit Hall
November 14-20 Oregon Convention Center Portland, Oregon
This year at SC, Berkeley Lab is incorporating an innovative display technology to show three-dimensional science and engineering data in 3D – without the use of special glasses or viewers. The centerpiece of the display is a 24-inch Magic Planet globe made by Global Imagination. Berkeley Lab staff will use the globe to display global climate simulations, astrophysics research and the growth and operation of ESnet, DOE’s network for advancing science.
Berkeley Lab will be giving away a very limited number of these revolutionary T-shirts. Stop by our booth for details on how to enter the drawing to win yours. Click here to see a larger picture.
When SC09 convenes Nov. 14 in Portland, LBNL researchers will be making significant contributions to the conference program. Berkeley Lab staff will participate in two tutorials, present four technical papers, join in one panel discussion, give two Masterworks talks, lead two Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, co-lead an Exhibitor Forum session and be in the running for an ACM Gordon Bell Prize.

Once again, Berkeley Lab's booth will showcase our most valuable computing, networking and scientific resources—our world-class roster of recognized experts. Many of our best-known staff members will again be holding "office hours" in our booth, waiting to exchange ideas or answer your questions. No canned presentations, just useful information from people like Horst Simon, Kathy Yelick, Steve Cotter, John Shalf, Wes Bethel and others. More>
Berkeley Lab is an internationally recognized leader in power-efficient computing and will be highlighting this expertise in both talks and displays. Berkeley Lab climate expert Michael Wehner will give a Masterworks talk on “Green Flash: Exascale Computing for Ultra-High Resolution Climate Modeling” following former Vice President Al Gore’s Thursday morning keynote address, and Bill Tschudi, an expert in data center energy efficiency, will join a Thursday panel discussion on “Energy Efficient Data Centers for HPC, How Lean and Green Do We Need to Be?”
Tschudi is also participating in a special exhibit on Energy-Efficient Computing and in the LBNL booth, researchers John Shalf and Dave Donofrio will present demos of “Green Flash,” the green HPC architecture proposed by LBNL to greatly improve climate computing while saving both power and money.

It typically takes about two days to move 10 terabytes of climate data between U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) computing facilities. But during SC09 a collaboration of researchers and engineers from Argonne, Lawrence Berkeley and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories will attempt to transfer more data than this in approximately two hours. The occasion is the annual SC09 Bandwidth Challenge. More>
Two teams in SC09's Bandwidth Challenge will be transporting terabytes of data across ESnet over a period of several hours. To ensure that the data arrives within the challenge timeframe, the teams used ESnet's OSCARS to reserve bandwidth on its Science Data Network (SDN). More>
Berkeley Lab will also be showcasing its cutting-edge science and engineering in a more traditional format—10 posters highlighting:
NERSC: Petaflops Power to the People!
NERSC-Driven Scientific Achievements
ESnet's Successes and Future Plans
Accelerating Microbial Genomics
Magellan—Testing Cloud Computing for Science
Deep Sky: A Data Portal to the Universe
Applying Math to Improving the Power Grid
Tools and Technologies for Advancing Science
The Berkeley Water Center: A Vital Resource
