1. Title: Enabling the Next Generation of Scalable Clusters

Professor William D. Gropp
Paul and Cynthia Saylor Professor of Computer Science
Computer Science Department
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Urbana, Illinois
Clusters revolutionized computing by making supercomputer capabilities widely available. But one of the main drivers of that revolution, the rapid doubling of processor clock rates, ran out of steam several years ago. To maintain (or even increase) the historic rate of improvement in computing power, processor designs are rapidly increasing parallelism at all levels, including more functional units, more cores, and ways to share resources among threads. Heterogeneous designs that use more specialized processors such as GPGPUs are becoming common. The scale of high-end systems is ... more

2. Title: Sky Computing: When Multiple Clouds Become One

Professor José A.B. Fortes
BellSouth Eminent Scholar
Director, NSF Center for Autonomic Computing
The University of Florida, Gainesville, USA
The growing number of announced commercial and scientific clouds strongly suggests that in the near future these providers will be differentiated according to the types of their services, their cost, availability and quality. Users will be able to use these and other criteria to determine which clouds best suit their needs, a plausible scenario being the case when users need to aggregate capabilities provided by different clouds. In such scenarios it will be essential to provide virtual networking technologies that enable providers to support cross-cloud communication and users to deploy cross-cloud applications. This talk will describe ... more
Cloud Panel - Cloud Deployment Trajectories for National Goals

Cloud computing is taking over the IT world even though there are only a few de facto standards. Industry, science and government are all pursuing the cloud concept as a way to reduce costs while improving efficiency, flexibility, and delivering more compute power. Needless to say, there are enormous challenges to actually realizing this grand vision. Performance management, information assurance (security), legal precedent, policy and governance are all major issue areas. Nonetheless, several national governments have announced projects to adopt cloud computing. This panel will examine the following questions:

  • What scope of users do these projects initially plan to support? Just routine business IT functions?
  • What national goals do these projects have? Simply to reduce IT budgets, or to facilitate scientific and technological progress for national interests?
  • What will be the practical and realistic deployment trajectories for these resources?
  • To realize these goals through a planned deployment trajectory, what capabilities and resources will need to be in place in which order?
  • What standards will need to be in place to mitigate the risk of "vendor lock-in" and prevent the deployment of non-interoperable "cloud silos"?
  • Given that national cloud projects will be major stakeholders with regards to needing cloud standards, how can they influence, or even drive, the standards process across the marketplace?

The CCGrid symposium series serves as a major international forum for presenting and sharing recent research accomplishments and technological developments in the field of Cluster, Cloud and Grid computing.

The first CCGrid Conference started in Brisbane, Australia, in 2001. Since then, the confernce has successfully been hosted around the world. The confernces from 2002 to 2009 were held in Germany, Japan, USA, UK, Singapore, Brazil, France and China, respectively. Returning back to its originating country, the 10th International conference is going to be held in Melbourne, Australia.

Call for Research/Product Demonstrations (New!!)

We invite research demonstrations from laboratories or research groups (academic, government, or industrial) to showcase new innovations and technologies in Cloud Computing and HPC/scientific applications at the CCGrid 2010 conference. CCGrid is a highly successful and well-recognized International conference for presenting the latest breakthroughs in Cluster, Cloud and Grid technologies.

Please visit Call for demos for more details.
