The Gelato Federation (http://www.gelato.org) is proud to announce the technical program for the Gelato ICE: Itanium® Conference & Expo to be held on October 1-4, 2006 at the Biopolis in Singapore. International Itanium architecture experts are scheduled to deliver 40 presentations focusing on Linux® on the Intel® Itanium® architecture. The full program is now available online at http://www.ice.gelato.org/oct06/gelatoICE_agenda.pdf.
"Our presentation line-up for this conference is impressive considering the depth and breadth of topics in conjunction with the high level of technical knowledge," stated Mark K. Smith, Gelato managing director. "It is also exciting that this Gelato ICE is in Singapore, given the strong Itanium processor adoption rate in the Asia-Pacific region."
Gelato ICE is the world's only conference dedicated specifically to Linux on the Intel Itanium architecture. The event addresses current high-performance computing issues and collaborative solutions specific to the platform, and features presentations and the exchange of information in formal and informal settings. Gelato ICE is targeted for technical users, application and tool developers, system researchers and vendors, and ISVs looking to extend the impact of the platform. The conference is hosted by the Bioinformatics Institute, Institute of High Performance Computing, and National Grid Office and is sponsored by HP, Intel, and the Itanium® Solutions Alliance.
Program Sessions and Tracks for Gelato ICE Singapore
In addition to a general interest track covering topics such as storage solutions and open standards, program tracks are scheduled for virtualization, scalability, grid, and research/advanced topics. Keynote speakers include Steve Geary, director of HP Open Source and Linux Organization R&D, Cameron McNairy, principal engineer and Intel architect, and Jeff Adie, SGI principal systems engineer and Itanium® Solutions Alliance representative. New for Gelato ICE Singapore are tutorial/lab sessions targeting multi-core programming developed in partnership with Intel and a track sponsored by the Itanium® Solutions Alliance geared especially for software developers.
"The Itanium Solutions Alliance is delighted to offer training sessions at Gelato ICE for software developers to facilitate porting and tuning applications to Itanium-based platforms," said Robin Drummond, president of the Itanium Solutions Alliance. "Events like Gelato ICE coupled with the ongoing commitment from Alliance members work to enable continued increases in application availability and growth in Itanium 2-based server sales."
Gelato ICE Singapore will be the year's highpoint for those wanting to learn more about using and developing Linux on Itanium architecture. Anyone working with this platform—or thinking about working with the platform—should attend. More information is available at http://www.ice.gelato.org.
