2017 GEFI Workshop
Jason Liu attended the 2017 GEFI (Global Experimentation for Future Internet) Workshop, on October 26-27, 2017, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he gave a talk on “Virtual Time Machine for Large-Scale Reproducible Distributed Emulation”.
2017 Annual CIRI PI Meeting
Jason Liu attended the Annual CIRI PI Meeting on October 19, 2017, at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, IL, USA. At the meeting, he gave an introductory talk on CAESCIR (the Center for Advancing Education and Research on Critical Infrastructure Resilience), which is a new project at FIU, sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
2017 ModSim Workshop
Jason Liu attended the 2017 Workshop on Modeling & Simulation of Systems and Applications, August 09-11, 2017, held at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA. The three-day workshop is organized by Adolfy Hoisie (PNNL) and provided a DOE-centric perspective on HPC modeling and simulation. In particular, the workshop explored the impact of modeling and simulation on the traditional HPC and its potential on new computing paradigms in the era of exascale computing.
Detailed notes (private) from the workshop are available.
