SC06, under the theme "Powerful Beyond Imagination," will be held November 11-17, 2006, in Tampa, FL.
SC06 Bandwidth Challenge: End-to-End Achievement
For six years, the Bandwidth Challenge has been an exciting and engrossing activity at SC conferences. This year the Bandwidth Challenge will focus on a different important facet of networking: End-to-End achievement. Can you fully utilize one 10 Gig path, end-to-end, disk-to-disk, from SC06 in Tampa back to your home institution, using the actual production network back home? Can you realize, demonstrate and publish all of the configuration, troubleshooting, tuning and policies, not only to show off at SC06, but to leave a legacy at your home institution whereby your scientists can achieve the same results after you? This is a decidedly different slant from the previous Bandwidth Challenge competitions, but one that is well worth embracing and will prove both challenging and inspiring!

Reminder: Fernbach, Cray Award Nominations Due July 31
Nominations for the 2006 Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award and the Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award must be submitted by Monday, July 31. These awards, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, will be presented during the awards ceremony at SC2006 in Tampa.
The Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award is given to individuals whose innovative contributions to high performance computing systems best exemplify the creative spirit demonstrated by Seymour Cray. The award consists of a crystal model, certificate, and honorarium of $10,000. The nomination form and submission information can be found at this site.
The Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award was established in 1992 in memory of Sidney Fernbach, one of the pioneers in the development and application of high performance computers. A certificate and $2,000 are awarded for outstanding contributions in the application of high performance computers using innovative approaches. The nomination form and submission information can be found at this site.

Posters Submissions Requested through July 31
The SC06 conference solicits submissions for posters displaying cutting-edge research in high-performance computing and networking. Posters at SC06 will occupy a prominent viewing location throughout the conference. An evening Posters Reception will feature the posters and allow conference attendees to discuss the displays with poster presenters. Please see http://www.sc-submissions.org/ for submission details. The submission deadline is July 31, 2006.

Call for Student Posters Offers New Feature for Tech Program
A new SC06 feature is a posters session for graduate and undergraduate students as part of the national ACM Student Research Competition (http://www.acm.org/spost/) sponsored Microsoft Research. Finalists will be given a time to present their results in a special session during the Technical Program. To be considered for this competition, go to http://www.sc-submissions.org/ and select the form for the SRC competition. The submission deadline is July 31, 2006.

Exhibitor Forum Submissions Accepting Innovative Entries
The Exhibitor Forum is now accepting submissions for presentations of innovative technology from our Industrial Exhibitors. As in past years, this will be an excellent opportunity for companies to showcase their latest advances, introduce new products, or present case studies from their major users. Exhibitor Forum talks will be 30 minutes each, in two parallel tracks to accommodate the high expected demand for presentation time. Although an exhibitor can submit a number of Forum presentations, we expect to accept only one entry per exhibitor due to time and space limitations. For more information about the Exhibitor Forum, visit the web site listed below. To submit a presentation, go to the submission site at http://www.sc-submissions.org/. The deadline for submissions is July 31.

HPC Storage Challenge Still Accepting Participants
Participants in the SC06 Storage Challenge compete to demonstrate innovative techniques in eliminating, or at least significantly reducing, storage I/O bottlenecks in HPC applications. The Challenge is based on reports and measurements of the performance and capacities achieved in actual HPC applications implementations. Scalability and storage subsystem utilization are also important factors that should be reported.
Proposals are accepted through July 31 at the SC06 submissions website. Finalists will be requested to present the reports of their achievements as part of the technical program at SC06 in Tampa during November. Strut your data handling stuff at SC'06!

Learning & Physical Challenges Education (LPCE) Program Offered at SC06
LPCE Faculty/Educators and students have the opportunity to see and discuss the latest high-performance networking and computing technology and meet leading researchers from around the world while contributing to the success of this annual event.
Two participants from six institutions will receive reimbursement to attend the conference, two-day seminars by computing experts at their institutions, and SC Desktop during the conference.
Applications must be submitted by September 30, 2006.
