Tech Papers

With the SC2003 Conference theme of Igniting Innovation, the words of Louis Pasteur have special meaning for the SC2003 Technical Papers program: "Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world." The SC2003 Technical Papers program brings together innovative and important new work in high-performance computing and networking from over fifty academic, government, and corporate institutions across five continents. Sixty papers have been selected for presentation from 207 submissions. The papers span theory and practice, modeling and experimentation, and infrastructure and application. Modeling and visualizing earthquakes, services for grids and clusters, and optimization of computer and network architectures are just a few of the topics reported on.

The program is presented in twenty sessions over three days. Sessions on cluster-based servers, tool infrastructure, and compilation techniques start the week, while sessions on high-performance input/output and performance measurement end the week. In between, program participants have a broad cross-section of work to choose from. Awards are given for best technical paper and best student paper. The first pair of sessions includes two of the papers nominated for best student paper. The last session includes one of the papers nominated for best technical paper. In all, six papers are candidates for best technical paper, and five for best student paper. Twenty student papers were accepted from 74 submissions. The Technical Papers program also highlights two Gordon Bell Prize sessions. The Technical Papers program is part of the larger SC2003 Technical Program including tutorials, posters, invited speakers, panels, BOFs, workshops, and SC Global.

The Technical Papers program is the culmination of many individual and group efforts. Special thanks goes to the Technical Papers Committee listed below. The quality of the program is a testament to their commitment to the paper review process. The Area Chairs deserve special note, as the process would not have worked without them. In addition to the committee, over fifty referees contributed their time and expertise. Thanks, too, to the SC2003 Technical Program Committee and other conference committees that support tech papers in myriad ways, from the submission/review website to student volunteers at the conference. Finally, thanks to the authors for contributing to an exceptional program.

We welcome your participation in the SC2003 Technical Papers program.
Let it spark your imagination!
