When SC08 opens November 15, 2008 in Austin, Texas, the conference will feature the latest scientific and technical innovations from around the world. Bringing together scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, programmers, system administrators and managers, SC08 will be the forum for demonstrating how these developments are driving new ideas, new discoveries and new industries.

Plan now to be a part of SC08 and its program of trailblazing technical papers, timely tutorials, invited speakers, up-to-the-minute research posters, entertaining panels and thought-provoking Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. New for 2008 are two Technology Thrusts: Energy and Biomedical Informatics. Additionally, exhibits from industry, academia and government research organizations will demonstrate the latest innovations in computing and networking technology. SC08 promises to be the most exciting and innovative SC Conference yet!

Advances in computing technologies that are featured at the SC Conferences are driving our ability to solve heretofore unsolvable problems in nanoscience, biotechnology, climate research, astrophysics, chemistry, fusion research, drug research, homeland defense, nuclear technologies and many other fields. The SC08 Conference will demonstrate how high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis touch all disciplines to enhance people's abilities to understand information and lead to new understanding, promote interdisciplinary projects, and affect the educational process through the use of computers in modeling and simulation in the classroom.
