It’s that time of year. SC07 begins in Reno next week, and everyone around here is getting prepared. Unfortunately this is the second year in a row that I can’t attend Supercomputing. Last year I was at CASP and this year we are doing a 2-day structural genomics workshop at UTSA. Apparently I’m not the only one with Supercomputing blues. I will miss the chance to talk with vendors and work the PSC booth, but I at least have a poster and some labmates going to Reno.
While much of the conference is focused on high performance network technologies, there’s some great life science talks worth attending. There’s also a session that grabbed my attention,
[High Performance Computing on GPUs with CUDA
where NAMD and NVidia developers will demonstrate MD simulations on graphics processors. Stay tuned for some juicy details about a demo from our booth.
