12:30 P.M.-5:30 P.M.

Using very low cost commodity off the self (COTS) hardware and free software, it became possible to build high-performance parallel computers that can achieve GigaFLOPS of performance. Such architectures are not only powerful, but also offer a great deal of compatability with commercial parallel computers. In this half-day short-course/tutorial you learn about:

  1. How to build a Beowulf
  2. How to program it
  3. What are the Beowulf related activities and research directions in government and academia world-wide
  4. The new Panther-1 machine, the Florida Tech Beowulf.


Refreshments will be served
