Greetings, and welcome to the first issue of the SC2002
newsletter. We have sent you this message based on your
attendance at a previous SC conference. We hope you
find the information useful, but if you don't want to
be on the distribution list, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the words "unsubscribe SC2002newsletter"
in the body of the email. If this message was sent to
an email address different than the one you are replying
from, please include that email address.
The newsletter will be sent out each month, providing
short articles about the conference, upcoming dates

SC2002 Scheduled for Nov. 16-22 in Baltimore
SC2002, under the theme "From Terabytes to Insights,"
will be held Nov. 16-22 in Baltimore, Md. For the past
14 years, SC has brought together scientists, engineers,
systems administrators, programmers, managers and vendors
to share ideas, swap stories and glimpse the next horizons
in high-performance computing and networking, data analysis
and management, visualization and computational modeling.
Plan now to participate in SC2002.
Submissions Website to Open April 8, Due Date is
Friday, April 26
The SC2002 website for submissions opens Monday, April
8. Submissions will be accepted for Gordon Bell Prize
nominations, Panels, Technical Papers (extended abstracts),
Tutorials and Workshops. The submissions website can
be accessed from the SC2002 Technical Program Web page:.
The submission deadline is Friday, April 26.
April 26 is also the deadline for submitting research
exhibit requests, as well as booth requirements for
space and networking connections.
Research Exhibitors Website Now Open for Submitting
The website for requesting research exhibit booth space
at SC2002 is now open and accessible from the Exhibits
section of the SC2002 website at. Details about SC2002
research exhibits, including a link to the application,
can be found using the *Research* link. Although the
deadline for submitting exhibit applications is Friday,
April 26, all exhibitors are encouraged to submit their
applications by Wednesday, April 17, so the Research
Exhibits Committee can consider the request during their
April 18 meeting to allocate floor space.
The Exhibits website also provides information on submitting
requests for networking, space, and special requirements,
such as co-location near other research or industry
exhibits. For more information about Research Exhibits,
contact committee chair Ernie Marshburn at email@example.com.
Scientific Modeling Images Needed for SC2002 Opening
Organizers of the SC2002 conference are seeking videos
showing the full variety of technologies and applications
in high-performance computing and networking. Examples
include computing and networking hardware, scientific
visualizations (we need more in biology, chemistry,
and engineering), and scientists interacting with data
at various interfaces (basically doing cool things).
Planners especially want to illustrate the conference's
"Terabytes to Insights" theme. Footage that
lends itself to excerpts of a few seconds is the most
The material will be used in the opening day video,
which is shown just before the keynote address. NASA/Goddard
Space Flight Center is taking the lead in creating the
SC2002 opening video. Please send your video in the
Betacam SP or Mini DV formats by April 19 to:
NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center
Building 28, Room S239

SC2002 Education Program Offers Teacher Training
in Latest Computing Technologies
Teachers interested in learning about computational
science and how to integrate it into the classroom are
invited to participate in the SC2002 Education Program.
Undergraduate and K-12 educators participate in the
conference through the Education Program, and by attending
the exhibits, plenary sessions, and special programs
offered to all conference attendees. Furthermore, the
SC conference Education Program continues throughout
the year through regional workshops and additional activities
to keep educators current with new developments in the
use of computing techniques in the classroom.
The SC2002 Education Program offers the opportunity
for educators to work on the integration of modeling
and visualization tools, resources, and techniques into
their classroom activities. The program encourages the
participation of underrepresented faculty and teachers,
including faculty from two and four-year colleges, primarily
undergraduate institutions, and minority-serving institutions.
The Education Program portion of the SC2002 conference
runs from Saturday, Nov. 16, through Tuesday, Nov. 19,
although participants are encouraged to stay for the
remainder of the week to participate in the full range
of conference offerings. Support for travel and housing
expenses will be provided to accepted applicants, pending
The deadline to apply for the Education Program is Friday,
April 26. For information on how to apply and other
Education Program information, go to.
Upcoming Dates to Remember:
April 26: Submissions for Technical Papers, Gordon
Bell Prize nominations, Panels, Tutorial and Workshops
due. Research Exhibits and Education Program applications
May 27: Applications for HPC Challenge due.
June 26: Notification of conditional acceptance
of Technical Papers.
July 29: Final version of Technical Papers due.
