  Description:
  Come explore data from our growing array of high school cosmic ray detectors. These devices measure the constant rain of particles from deep space and give students the opportunity to collaborate on real scientific problems. The detectors upload data to the grid for analysis via a web-based tool. Your students can login, have access to data as well as collaborative tools that allow them to "do science". We will lead a short discussion on cosmic rays, and then allow participants full access to the system. Join the collaboration and post your discoveries during this workshop.

  Description:
  The ongoing evolution of the Internet along with recent advancements in middleware, hardware, and networking has prompted consideration of High Performance Computing (HPC) beyond the traditional research domains of academia and national laboratories. The Internet has forced the realization that computing can no longer be confined within local geographic boundaries and must be addressed from a global perspective. It is also essential to recognize that Internet-related technologies extend far beyond the traditional applied science and engineering communities, including disciplines such as humanities, social sciences, mass communication, and journalism. In addition, efforts by the commercial sector to reduce expenses while making services more attractive to customers has driven many businesses to incorporate HPC technologies and principles into their infrastructure and practices to support and expand their customer base. In this session, a very diverse group of internationally-recognized speakers from industry, academia, national laboratories and federal agencies has been assembled to discuss the implications of future computing technologies and their impact on the different communities.
