The Unofficial HP Guide to SC11 [Update 2]

Update 2:
We have had tremendous response to Tuesday evening’s HP-Intel invite-only reception at the Boeing Aviation Museum and the event is now at capacity. Unfortunately if you didn’t already register, it is too late. But you can still register for HP-CAST or come by the HP booth at SC11 where we will have quite a bit of exciting news to share.

Update: Please note, the Tuesday evening reception at the Boeing Aviation Museum is by invitation only and intended for HP and Intel customers. You will be asked to provide the name of the Intel or HP representative who invited you during the registration process. HP, Intel, and partner employees can only attend if they are accompanying an invited customer.

No need to wait until Sunday to start the festivities, HP-CAST kicks off with a welcome reception on Thursday November 10th. Here is my officially biased list of SC11 activities you should attend. Registration is required for all events, click on the links below to register.

  • Thursday evening November 10, HP-CAST welcome reception.
  • Friday November 11, HP-CAST customer and HP executive presentations
  • Saturday November 12, HP-CAST tutorials
  • Sunday November 13, sleep in, have a late breakfast at the famous Pike’s Place fish market (on your own, not a sponsored event!)
  • Monday evening November 14, be sure to come by the HP Booth during the gala opening ceremonies.
  • Tuesday November 15 is a great day to sign up for an NDA briefing with HP executives and technical staff to hear about our product plans for the next few years. NDA sessions are being scheduled for the entire week, contact your HP representative to sign up.
  • Tuesday evening, don’t forget to sign up for a very special evening by invitation only reception hosted by HP and Intel at the Boeing Aviation Musuem.
  • Wednesday morning November 16, don’t miss the special breakfast NDA presentation by HP and Nvidia, presenting will be Dwight Barron, Chief Technology Officer of Hyperscale Computing at HP, Steve Scott, Chief Technology Officer of Tesla at NVIDIA, Scott Friedmann, Chief Technologist of Research Computing at UCLA. With that lineup of speakers, who needs coffee (but don’t worry, both regular and decaf will be served)
  • Wednesday evening, don’t miss the annual Mellanox customer event, where you get to hear not only Mellanox CEO Eyal Waldman but also myself present. By Wednesday there won’t be too many secrets left to announce, but I’m sure I’ll have a few interesting things left to say about how HP and Mellanox customers are reaching new levels of performance and sustainability with some of the newest and most power efficient systems showing up on the Top500 list.
