SC 08 Conference in Austin, TX - International conference for high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis

SC 08 | Austin TX | Nov 15 - 21, 2008 |
International Conference for High Performance Computing (HPC), Networking, Storage and Analysis.

"Keep SC weird" - such is the name of the Exhibitor party at the Four Seasons tonight, a playful twist of the citys motto Keep Austin weird.

SC 08 Conference is the premier international conference for high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis. You can check the schedule here.

If you happen to live in Austin, there are a couple of things I would recommend. They are not necessarily the "standing room only" sessions but those that I do not want to miss (and some that I will really try to go to).

All events will take place at the Austin Convention Center.
