The SC07 Tutorials Program gives attendees the opportunity to explore a wide variety of important topics related to high performance computing, networking, and storage.

This year, 10 half-day and 15 full-day tutorials are offered with a range of introductory to advanced material. There are 8 new tutorials scheduled and 17 that have been presented at previous SC conferences.

Topics include: Parallel application development - languages, libraries, tools, environments, performance analysis, modeling Grid technologies I/O and storage systems Tools and methods for software development Networking and high-speed interconnects New architectures and technologies Security and reliability Visualization tools and applications Separate registration is required for tutorials.

Attendees may choose a one-day or two-day passport, allowing them to move freely between tutorials on the selected days. Tutorial notes and luncheons are provided for each registered tutorial attendee.

Note: This year no hardcopy notes will be distributed.

Each registered tutorial attendee will receive a copy of all the tutorial notes on a computer- readable medium only. Some of the tutorials (S04, S07, S08, M02, and M13) will have hands-on components. For these, attendees must bring their own laptops with SSH software installed. The tutorial rooms will have wired network drops, Ethernet cables, SCinet wireless, and power drops, but there will be no computer support available. Please arrive early, as there may be tutorial-specific software to install on your laptop.
