Return of HPC Survivor: Outwit, Outlast, Outcompute

SESSION: Return of HPC Survivor: Outwit, Outlast, Outcompute


TIME: 8:30AM - 10:00AM

Panelists:Cherri M. Pancake, Mike Bernhardt, Keith Gray, Pete Beckman, John West, Dona Crawford, Philip Bourne



Back by popular demand, this panel brings together HPC experts to compete for the honor of "HPC Survivor 2014". Following up on the popular Xtreme Architectures (2004), Xtreme Programming (2005), Xtreme Storage (2007), and Build Me an Xascale (2010) competitions, the theme for this year is "Does HPC Really Matter?"

The contest is a series of "rounds," each posing a specific question about system design, philosophy, implementation, or use. After contestants answer, a distinguished commentator furnishes additional wisdom to help guide the audience. At the end of each round, the audience votes (applause, boos, etc.) to eliminate a contestant. The last contestant left wins.

Cherri Pancake returns as emceee of the event. Highlights include internationally renowned panelists, lively critical commentary, and exit interviews giving eliminated candidates an opportunity to explain why the audience is "wrong" to vote them out.
