The Object Management Group (OMG) announced a call for participation for its first ever workshop on Open Source Modeling and Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). Taking place March 21-24, 2005 in Orlando, Fla., the workshop will investigate how the open source community can become more fully engaged in the development of tools and methodologies that have traditionally been developed in closed, commercial activities. The four-day program, a technical workshop -- not a conference, will address technologies, methodologies, tools and standards related to open source modeling and IDEs. In addition, the Workshop will offer case studies and user experiences. While research topics are not excluded, the emphasis, as with all OMG activity, is on real-world experience. More information can be found at the workshop Web site, http://www.omg.org/osmide-call.
The Workshop Program Committee is seeking proposals by Jan. 6 for presentations, panels or tutorials addressing, but not limited to, any of the following topics:
Interested individuals or organizations are invited to submit a brief abstract of the presentation or position paper they are proposing for a Workshop session, tutorial or panel along with proposed duration and a brief personal biography via web form found at www.omg.org/abstracts. Abstracts should be no longer than 600 words in length. Only three abstracts per individual will be accepted. Biographies should be no longer than 100 words. The Program Committee will need schedule flexibility, so please keep in mind that a proposal may be accepted, but not granted the full time proposed. If you have any questions or require additional information about the workshop program or venue, please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/02/2012 | AMD | Developers today are just beginning to explore the potential of heterogeneous computing, but the potential for this new paradigm is huge. This brief article reviews how the technology might impact a range of application development areas, including client experiences and cloud-based data management. As platforms like OpenCL continue to evolve, the benefits of heterogeneous computing will become even more accessible. Use this quick article to jump-start your own thinking on heterogeneous computing.
