Published 01/22/2010

Participants can now submit papers and abstracts for the Science, Technology, Gateways, and Education tracks, and abstracts only for all other parts of the TeraGrid'10 conference, to be held August 2-5, 2010 at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Visit the website for full details of the submission process for TeraGrid '10, which will showcase the capabilities and achievements of the nation's largest open-access scientific discovery infrastructure. All papers and abstracts should be submitted as PDF documents to the website.

The deadline for all submissions is May 10, 2010.

"The annual TeraGrid conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for TeraGrid users and staff to learn from each other, improving both the TeraGrid itself as well as the research that uses it," said Daniel S. Katz from the University of Chicago, co-chair of TG'10 with Richard Moore from the San Diego Supercomputer Center, at the University of California, San Diego. "We expect this year's conference to be equally strong, including opportunities for researchers, scientists, educators, students, and TeraGrid staff to present, learn, and interact with each other."

Science, Technology, Gateways, Education Track Submissions
Work for all Science, Technology, Gateways, and Education tracks not previously published in another venue, presented, or currently under consideration at another conference may be submitted as a paper or abstract. Papers should be no more than eight pages; abstracts should be no more than one page in length. Work previously published in another venue, presented, or currently under consideration at another conference may be submitted as a one-page abstract only. Please include the names and affiliations of all co-authors, indicating which author will be presenting. The deadline for these submissions is May 10, 2010.

All Other Submissions
Submissions for Science, Technology, and Student Posters; the Visualization Showcase; Tutorials; and Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) sessions should be in the form of a one-page abstract only. Please include the names and affiliations of all co-authors, indicating which author will be presenting. The deadline for tutorial and BOF submissions is May 10, 2010. The deadline for poster and visualization submissions is June 21, 2010.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed, and successful applicants will be expected to address reviewer comments. Both accepted abstracts and papers will appear in the conference as 30-minute presentations. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by May 28, 2010 (June 14, 2010 for Posters and Visualization Showcase entries.) Submissions that are not accepted can be re-submitted as posters. Final submissions addressing reviewer comments should be provided by June 11, 2010 for publication of abstracts on the conference website and inclusion of papers in the conference proceedings.

About TeraGrid
TeraGrid, funded by the National Science Foundation, is the world's largest, most comprehensive distributed cyberinfrastructure for open scientific research, combining resources at 11 partner sites to create an integrated, persistent computational resource. Using high-performance network connections, TeraGrid integrates high-performance computers, data resources and tools, and high-end experimental facilities around the country. Currently, TeraGrid resources include more than two petaflops of computing capability and more than 60 petabytes of online and archival data storage, with rapid access and retrieval over high-performance networks. Researchers can also access more than 100 discipline-specific databases.

TeraGrid is coordinated through the Grid Infrastructure Group (GIG) at the University of Chicago, working in partnership with the following Resource Provider sites: Indiana University, the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, the National Institute for Computational Sciences, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, Purdue University, San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, Texas Advanced Computing Center, University of Chicago/Argonne National Laboratory, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
