SC Global Constellation Sites

The SC Global infrastructure links the Denver Convention Complex with Constellation Sites across the U.S. and worldwide (for example, in Australia, Brazil, and Germany), using Access Grid technology to support multinational and multistate participation in distributed panels, workshops, and BOFs as well as to receive SC2001 technical content. We welcome inquiries from sites interested in participating as SC Global Constellation Sites.

At the SC2001 conference, join us on the Inaugural Voyage of SC Global—the first global Grid initiative to bring the world to the premiere technical and industrial meeting for high-end networking and computing and computational science, SC2001.

The goal of SC Global is to provide a multi-national and multi-cultural meeting place for communication and discussion of ideas relating to high-end computing and communications and its impacts on science and society.The SC Global event will use Access Grid technology (www.accessgrid.org) and advanced network infrastructure to link the core of SC2001 activities at the Denver Convention Complex (USA) with dozens of SC Global Constellation Sites (sites contributing content to SC Global program) distributed across North America and throughout the world including Australia, Italy, Germany, UK, China, and Japan.

By joining SC Global’s Inaugural Voyage, it will be uniquely possible to experience any or all of the following:
  • A rich set of panel discussions involving panelists distributed across different geographic sites

  • Stimulating, educational workshops led by scholars located in other parts of the world (including local audience involvement where the content is originating)

  • Dynamic birds-of-a-feather (BOF) sessions focused on critical research issues (interactive group discussions involving numerous SC Global Constellation sites)

  • Selected invited talks by industry and research luminaries.
All the SC Global sessions will exploit an advanced network infrastructure (provided in conjunction with SCinet), along with Access Grid technology (including remote site and local AG Node Operators to facilitate the SC Global sessions), to enable real-time interaction and collaboration among the international speakers, panelists and participants. SC Global Constellation sites have been involved in over eight months of preparation and training including a series of SC Global nanocruises (testing the AG technology and the network infrastructure), an SC Global Production Institute (working on developing collaborative session skills and capabilities), and the SC Global Mega Cruise week (SC Global's version of a “dress rehearsal”).

Here’s how you can participate in SC Global’s Inaugural Voyage at SC2001 from the Denver Convention Complex:
  • Visit the SC Global Showcase Node on the Exhibit Floor to get an SC Global Program

  • Visit the SC Global website (www.scglobal.org) to view the program and background information on SC Global

  • Select any one of three concurrent SC Global sessions and proceed to the appropriate SC Global room (located near the Technical Program rooms)

  • Choose one of the exciting featured programs at the SC Global Showcase Node and remain at the booth
