CUG 2011



Come to CUG 2011 in Fairbanks, Alaska

Dear Friends,

The Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (ARSC) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) invites you to attend CUG 2011. The conference theme, Golden Nuggets of Discovery, reflects upon the discovery of gold that led to the founding of Fairbanks and the scientific discoveries made possible through high performance computing. ARSC will host the meeting at the downtown Westmark Hotel.

ARSC was opened in 1993. The center, located at two geographical locations, supports high performance computational research in science and engineering with emphasis on high latitudes and the Arctic. Computations are performed by scientists within the High Performance Computing Modernization Program of the DoD for which ARSC serves as a DoD Supercomputing Resource Center and by researchers, faculty and students at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. UAF is America’s Arctic University and home to more than a dozen research centers and institutes that focus on the Arctic.

ARSC’s newest system, Chugach—named after the mountain range located in Southcentral Alaska—is a Cray XE6 comprising 11,520 cores. This system, which is installed in the US ARMY Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg, MS, will be operated remotely from Fairbanks.

Residents of the Golden Heart City are eager to share their city and local attractions, including gold mining adventures, museums, canoeing, kayaking, hot springs powered by geothermal energy, wildlife, music, theatre and more. Day trips for fishing, visiting Mount McKinley and the Denali National Park, sightseeing on the Alaska Railroad and flight-seeing above the Arctic Circle are accessible from Fairbanks. In late May we have 21 hours of daylight to play in!

We hope that you will join us in Fairbanks for what we expect to be a thoroughly educational, enlightening, and enjoyable CUG 2011.
