  Description:
  Understanding how to leverage parallel computing environments for the betterment of general applications can be a daunting task. The necessary components of "scope" and "scale" in modeling push the limits of both applications and supercomputing technologies. This presentation will discuss the topics of speedup and efficiency and the mapping of applications onto parallel environments through several parallel program examples.

  Description:
  D2K is a flexible data mining and machine learning system that integrates analytical data mining methods for prediction, discovery, and deviation detection, with information visualization tools. It offers a visual programming environment allowing users to easily connect software modules together in a unique data flow environment to form an application. D2K supplies a standard set of software components and application templates, along with a standard API for software component development. The software modules are reusable components, which facilitate efficiency and collaboration among developers. Modules that have been modified for a specific domain application as well as generated models can be stored in a central repository for use by others in a given research community.

This session will be a hands-on session to help users develop familiarity with some of the techniques described previously. Specifically, we will look at predication and rule association.

  Description:
  Our goal is to help faculty exploit GIS technologies in their teaching. In the first session we present key concepts of GIS-based instruction and demonstrate a range of examples and approaches. A GIS system called RMMS is highlighted and faculty begin their hands-on work with it. Recent developments, policy issues and challenges regarding GIS-based instruction conclude the session. Faculty are introduced In the second session to key tools for creating and viewing GIS data and receive extensive hands-on practice in their use. A range of online GIS data sources are also introduced and visited. Faculty are encouraged to focus on tools, techniques and data sources closest to their disciplines and instructional goals. Brainstorming on GIS applications in education completes the session. An online archive provides post-conference access to concepts, examples, tools and data sources: http://web.aces.uiuc.edu/aim/sc2003online.htm
