SC2001: Beyond Boundaries
IEEE/ACM High Performance Networking and Computing Conference
Denver, Colorado
November 10-16, 2001


Submission Deadline: July 27, 2001

SC2001 solicits posters presentations reporting late-breaking
experimental or theoretical results, innovative designs, and
case studies related to high performance networking and computing.
SC2001 is the premier venue for the latest wave of technology,
scalable architectures, networks, computational science, programming tools,
vast data sets, visualization, and high performance computing education.

Topics of interest include:

- scalable systems - performance evaluation and modeling
- high performance networking - distributed computing systems
- high performance I/O - programming environments and tools
- novel computer architectures - visualization
- parallel databases - fault-tolerant
architectures and system SW
- distributed collaborations - parallel and distributed algorithms
- architecture simulation - workload characterization
- user experiences - optimization studies
- data- and computation-intensive applications
- large-scale databases and digital libraries

In addition to offering the opportunity for greater timeliness than a
full paper, posters offer many advantages in terms of presentation.
The poster session is a means of presenting research in a more casual
setting, with the chance for greater in-depth, one-on-one dialogue
that can proceed at its own pace. This may be advantageous to both
foreign-speaking presenters and attendees. It also offers the
opportunity for more direct feedback to presenters.

Posters are an excellent way to convey ideas and results not yet
developed into a full paper,
so works in progress and results from the latter stages of Ph.D.
research are especially encouraged. A poster presentation may be a
good first step if you've never made a formal presentation at a

Submit your poster proposal electronically in
the form of short abstract (1-2 pages) clearly emphasizing the
research problem under consideration, the approach taken, the
impact/importance of the work
to the SC2001 audience, and the prospect for clearly and concisely
conveying the work in a poster format. If the work is still in
progress then some initial results must be included so that the
reviewers do not need to exercise a great deal of faith in order to
recommend acceptance.

The deadline for submissions is July 27, 2001. A committee will
select posters of exceptional technical quality, originality,
relevance, and clarity. Abstracts for accepted posters will be
included in the SC2001 CD-ROM Conference Proceedings. A monetary
prize will be awarded for the "Best Poster"; this award will be
announced during the SC2001 Awards Session and will be based on both
poster content and presentation. All poster presenters must register
for the SC2001 technical program. If your poster submission is
accepted for inclusion in the conference you will be sent a set of
guidelines/instructions for poster preparation and presentation, to
which you must adhere.

Electronic Visualization Laboratory Building First "Super-Bright" CAVE

The Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois
at Chicago has procured the projectors and screens to build the next
generation of the CAVE Automatic Virtual Environment, or CAVE. Months of
prototype validation, assisted by EVL partner Fakespace Systems, Inc., have
shown this major CAVE upgrade to be dramatic.

Mirage 5000 projectors, a new product line of Christie Digital Systems,
allow EVL to display virtual reality imagery many times brighter than any
existing CAVE or CAVE-like device in the world. The Mirage 5000 is the
first DLP-based Active Stereoscopic projector, and delivers 5000 ANSI
lumens brightness (compared to 225 lumens of the Marquee 8500's used in
classic CAVEs). [See projector specifications and for details on CAVE products.]

In addition to the new projectors, which generate ultra-bright images, EVL
has tested and installed nearly black screens to allow much higher contrast
as well. The Bright Advanced Technology (BAT) CAVE, as it is being called
for now, will be fully functional by mid-summer. Upon completion, Fakespace
Systems expects to begin offering the product as either a new system or
upgrade package to clients. Fakespace Systems holds exclusive rights to the
sale and manufacturing of CAVE hardware systems.

"This latest technology transfer to our longtime commercialization partner
Fakespace, and its worldwide customers, is truly gratifying to us," said
EVL co-director Tom DeFanti. "We're very eager to show off the BAT CAVE to
the community of VR developers and users." EVL co-director Dan Sandin,
co-creator of the CAVE technology with DeFanti, agrees. "The brightness,
clarity and enhanced depth perspective of the new Mirage 5000 projectors
produce more captivating real-time, real-life projection simulations." Greg
Dawe, who designed the original CAVE structure and continues to prototype
new designs for desktop virtual-reality displays, is not only very pleased
with the striking new results, but the ease of use and easy maintenance
afforded by the new Mirage projectors. EVL plans to host a BAT CAVE open
house in early August soon after completion of the installation. Check for details.

"We are confident that this evolutionary upgrade will significantly enhance
the system that has already proven so valuable to science and industry for
the past decade," said Jim Angelillo of Fakespace Systems. "UIC should once
again be commended for leading the charge in the search for better
visualization tools."

EVL faculty, staff and graduate students invented the CAVE in 1991, and
publicly exhibited it first at SIGGRAPH 1992. The BAT CAVE upgrade is made
possible by National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation
award, #EIA-9871058.
