The SC09 Posters track features the most innovative, exciting, and thought-provoking research from over 150 submissions. 65 regular posters offer up-to-the-minute results in all areas of high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis. While the official Best Poster will not be named until the Awards Session, we can point to impressive offerings in a number of applications areas (e.g. chemistry, physics, meteorology, biology, and epidemiology), various system scales (e.g. GPUs, multi-core chips, clusters, Peta-scale supercomputers, and grids), and diverse software offerings (including performance analysis tools, languages and programming systems, libraries, and parallel I/O).

Along with the regular posters mentioned above, SC09 is again proud to host a part of ACM's Student Research Competition (SRC) showcasing posters by individual students. This year, 12 student posters were chosen. In addition to the posters, which will be on display all week, the students will give short presentations about their work in a special Technical Program session Wednesday at 10:30.

In addition to the conventional poster presentations we will feature 8 electronic posters which should provide a unique way to present up to the minute results on various areas of high performance computing, networking, and storage and analysis.

Both the student and regular posters will be on display all week. However, the best time to see them may be the Posters Reception (Tuesday at 5:15. This popular event allows conference attendees to discuss the research displays with presenters in a casual setting. Presenters also get the chance for greater in-depth, one-on-one dialogue about their work.

Awards for the Best Poster and the ACM SRC will be given at the conference awards ceremony Thursday at 12:30 p.m. (by invitation).
