We know there is going to be a big conference center event in Denver next week, because we are getting pushed out of our Hilton hotel and back to the venerable and well-worn old Warwick hotel. I noticed the SC13 lamp post banners this morning while walking to the office. Turns out SC13 stands for SuperComputer, and I see on the program there will be workshops for ‘Graph Partitioning and Data Clustering’ and ‘Building on the European Exascale Approach’. Hmm. I would have loved to understand what that is all about – but it’s still heads-down for us, with our plain vanilla SAP systems work on the project. We have to get the design phase all wrapped up before the ’13’ in SC13 is gone!
