Dear all beowulfers,
I'm posting the following message for Thomas Sterling to try get some
material for his State of the Field Address at SC'00:
Greetings - I have a favor to ask of you. I am privileged to be giving
the State of the Field Address on Cluster Computing at the
SuperComputing 2000 Conference early next month in Dallas.
I am striving to assemble material that provides the broadest
representation of our field and most objective characterization
as well. You, in ensemble, reflect a significant cutset of the
discipline of cluster computing. I would like to request your
help by sending me any of the following that is appropriate and
convenient for you:
1. Powerpoint viewgraph or JPEG picture with one or more
photographs of your cluster systems. You may include
bulleted specification of the cluster's characteristics.
Pictures with people in them are acceptable.
2. Powerpoint viewgraphs or JPEG pictures of applications
running on clusters. This can include pictures of the end
science (or other meta-discipline), charts of performance or
scalability measurements, or a combination of both. A short
word statement of the problem and institution at which it
was performed is fine, but not necessary.
3. List of cluster or clusters you have on site with
4. URL pointing to your web site where I might garner more
Please do not go out of your way over this, we appreciate anything you may
have to contribute to this.
Thanks much in advance for your help.
