SCALE Challenge Program

SCALE is a competition in which the participants demonstrate working solutions to real-world problems that rely on large scale computing. Competitors submit proposals in advance that outline the nature of the problem to be solved, the solution technique, and document the scale achieved in production. From those proposals, finalists will be selected to present their work at the conference, including a demonstration of the system or software in action. The judges will award a first prize winner at the conference.

Time: May 27 (Tuesday), 13:30--15:30

Room: Toronto

Chair: Douglas Thain (Norte Dame)
