CUG 2011



Conference Registration

Conference Best Paper Award

On Wednesday May 25, 2011, during the General Session, CUG will recognize the conference's Best Paper. We will announce nominations from each Special Interest Group and then award the conference's Best paper.

Who May Attend

CUG meetings are not open sessions according to our organization's corporate bylaws and guidelines. Admittance to any meeting session requires the appropriate identification badge.

Generally speaking, employees of a CUG Member site (identified by its CUG site code), and users of computing services provided by a CUG Member site, may attend a CUG meeting as a registered Installation Participant from that CUG Member site. (Note: For your convenience, there is an option to pay your site's annual membership fee on the conference registration form.)

In addition, CUG bylaws specify that a "CUG Visitor" is "Any individual who is not an Installation Representative and who is invited to attend a specific function of the Corporation ... [with] the prior approval of the Board of Directors." This generally applies to an occasional invited speaker who brings important perspectives to our meeting in support of a strong technical program.

Subject to the restrictions in the Sponsor Agreement, Conference Sponsors may also attend. Sponsorship opportunities are limited, and must include the approval of Cray, Inc. For information on the benefits of becoming a Conference Sponsor, please contact the CUG Treasurer.

Finally, CUG bylaws state that "Meetings shall not be used for marketing or other commercial purposes."

First-time Attendees

We encourage first-time attendees to seek out CUG Board Members and other CUG leaders. Board Members and SIG and Focus Chairs will be wearing ribbons by which you may identify them. They look forward to welcoming you and to helping you with information about how CUG works.
