SC06, under the theme "Powerful Beyond Imagination," will be held November 11-17, 2006, in Tampa, FL.
Start Planning Now to Part of the SC06 Technical Program
Are you wrapping up an interesting HPC research project? Have an idea for a compelling tutorial? If so, now is the time to start thinking about submitting your work for consideration as part of the SC06 Technical Program. The conference submissions site opens March 26, 2006, so now it the time to start mapping out your ideas.
"Even though our HPC community seems to live by the 'wait-til-the-last-minute' mantra, we want to encourage people to start thinking about papers, tutorials and other tech program areas now," said Barbara Horner-Miller. "We all know how these deadlines sneak up on us, but the SC conference has become THE place to present your HPC work and we don't want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to contribute."

Storage Challenge for SC06 and Beyond
After the success of the StorCloud initiative in SC04 and SC05, many questions have been raised regarding the decision to discontinue StorCloud in SC06. The SC committee will transform the StorCloud initiative into the Storage Challenge for SC06 and SC07. Details on this challenge are in the process of being developed and will be posted on the web site as they become ready. The committee is targeting to have the challenge fully defined for SC06 before the end of March.

SC06 Gordon Bell Award Program Takes On Separate Track
One change in this year's technical program is that the Gordon Bell award finalists will be in a separate track of the technical program from the technical papers. As a result, submissions for the Gordon Bell prize will be made to the Gordon Bell competition page and not to the technical papers page. The deadline for submission remains the same as the technical papers deadline -- April 17, 2006; a link will be provided on the SC06 website.
SC Global Continues SCDesktop Initiative This Year
SCGlobal is about global collaboration. This year, we will place the emphasis on high-end technologies that enable working collaborations. These partnerships can take on many forms, such as simple video conferencing, multipoint information dissemination and highly sophisticated arts productions. These technologies also touch a wide and diverse group of people, from business and educational researchers to corporate executives. Scarce resources, specialized expertise, equipment, devices and educational resources are also shared. At SC Global, we will be presenting all of these over a three-day period in November at SC06. As in past SCGlobal programs, the Tampa conference site will be linked to sites and presenters from around the world.
We will continue what we begun last year with the successful SCDesktop initiative, which allows attendees to participate in many of the Plenary, Technical and Masterworks programs remotely. These "virtual attendees" will be able to interact with many of the programs using AccessGrid technologies with software supplied again by inSORS.
