We seek original presentations by HPC application and software developers about recent discoveries, experiences, and lessons learned on IBM HPC products. Speakers will be chosen based on abstracts (1 page max) submitted to by the deadline above.  We invite topics for the following tracks:

  • Applications (POWER, Blue Gene, System x, AIX, etc)
  • Blue Gene Systems


ScicomP is an open-membership Working Group of SPXXL. ScicomP meetings target computational scientists and engineers interested in achieving maximum performance and scalability on all IBM HPC platforms, including the POWER, Blade, Blue Gene, and Cell platforms. Presentations will be given by both HPC users and IBM staff. The focus of user presentations is on real world experiences in porting, tuning, and running codes on large-scale IBM systems. Topics may include (but are not limited to) code migration, scalable algorithms, hybrid programming models, exploiting system architectures, and scheduling and execution frameworks. IBM staff presentation topics include hardware and software road maps for large systems; application development support software tools; performance programming, measurement, analysis, and tuning techniques.


SPXXL is an organization with systems-oriented interests in large-scale scientific technical computing on IBM hardware. Information about the SPXXL meeting will be available on the private SPXXL member web site.
