2016 DV Events
Chesapeake Large-Scale Analytics Conference (October 25th – 27th): Annapolis, Maryland
Data Vortex Technologies, for the third consecutive year, co-sponsored the exclusive Chesapeake Large-Scale Analytics Conference in Annapolis, Maryland. The conference, organized by the Association for High Speed Computing, brough together experts from industry, academia, and government institutions to discuss current and future challenges facing big data analytics. The DV team enjoyed the wave of recent installations toward SC16. Dr. Coke Stevenson Reed sat on a panel celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the HTMT Project. (http://www.clsac.org/)
24th Symposium on High-Performance (“HOT”) Interconnects (August 24th-26th): Santa Clara, California
Researchers from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory submitted and presented a paper on the Data Vortex network at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ 24th Annual Symposium on High Performance Interconnects. Presenting their research run on PEPSY, Dr. Roberto Gioisa showed “that the Data Vortex network is more efficient than traditional HPC networks with fine-grained data transfers” and that “a Data Vortex system achieves higher scalability even when using global synchronization primitives” (www.hoti.org/hoti24/program/).
The Salishan Conference on High-Speed Computing (April 25th – 28th): Gleneden Beach, Oregon
The Salishan Conference on High-Speed Computing (http://salishan.ahsc-nm.org/2016.html) was founded by the three National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) laboratories to pursue collaborative discussions with academia and industry in the areas of algorithms, architectures, and languages. Data Vortex Chairman and Inventor, Coke S. Reed, PhD, was in attendance.
10th Symposium on Big Data and Predictive Analytics for Defense (April 13th – 14th): Washington, D.C.
Featuring experts from the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Department of Labor, and Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency (IARPA), the tenth Symposium on Big Data and Predictive Analytics for Defense and National Security (http://www.bigdataevent.net/) brought together individuals and agencies who are shaping the direction of big data and predictive analytic research. We believe that the Data Vortex offers solutions to aid the National Security battle on the digital front.
The Data Vortex at ISC High Performance 2016
ISC High Performance (June 19th-23rd): Frankfurt, Germany
Representatives of the Data Vortex team attended this year’s ISC High Performance in Frankfurt. On Sunday, June 19th, Data Vortex hosted a series of talks and events with representatives from leading partners, users, and customers from Europe and the United States at the Frankfurt Messe Marriott Hotel. For more information on what was discussed at the event please visit www.datavortex.com/isc!. For our recap blog post please see here.
Women in HPC Events During ISC 2016
Data Vortex Technologies is proud of its partnership with Women in HPC, an organization that encourages and promotes women to participate in the HPC community by providing fellowship, education, and support to women and the organizations that employ them. In addition to hosting the Advisory Board meeting in Frankfurt, Data Vortex representatives participated in two exciting opportunities during International Supercomputing.
Tuesday June 21st (10:15 AM – 11:15 AM) Frankfurt Messe Conference Center, Booth #220
DV President Carolyn Coke Reed Devany was invited to sit on the Women in HPC BoF panel at the International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt, Germany. Her focus was built upon experiences in exploring the gender gap in leadership and entrepreneurial roles within the HPC industry (http://www.womeninhpc.org/women-in-hpc-at-isc-2016/bof/).
Wednesday June 22nd (12:30 – 13:45) Frankfurt Marriott
Additionally, Data Vortex Technologies served as cost-free gold sponsor of the Women in HPC networking luncheon. The luncheon celebrated the role of women in high performance computing careers and brought together women leaders and young career women in corporate organizations, research institutions, academia, and business for networking, mentoring, and sharing of knowledge.

“Good Guys on Both Sides of the Pond”, by Coke S. Reed, PhD
Data Vortex Inventor and Chairman, Coke S. Reed, PhD, gave his talk “Good Guys on Both Sides of the Pond” at King’s College London on June 14th. Dr. Reed’s talk incorporated his own experiences and looked at the co-evolution of British and American mathematics cooperation and computer design, with an eye toward the future and the role the Data Vortex will play.
The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (Supercomputing 2015) came to Austin this past November! Our team hosted a series of successful invited talks and demonstrations for HPC/Big Data Representatives in Industry, Government, and Academia.
Data Vortex User Showcase
This year during Supercomputing 2015, Research Physicists and Mathematicians will present their research that has run on Data Vortex systems. These talks will look at solving partial differential equation with the Data Vortex in situations where communication cost is dominant. Their research shows that performing calculations with Data Vortex computing systems is expected to speed up computation and to obtain better accuracy in comparison with other computing clusters having the same number of processors.
