By Ashutosh Tiwary, Janusz Kowalik, Bob Abarbanel, John Lixvar, Vish Jumani (auth.), Lucio Grandinetti, Janusz Kowalik, Marian Vajtersic (eds.)

Most of the papers during this quantity have been awarded on the NATO complex study Workshop excessive functionality Computing: know-how and alertness, held in Cetraro, Italy from 24 to 26 of June, 1996. the most function of the Workshop was once to debate a few key clinical and technological advancements in excessive functionality computing, determine major developments and defme fascinating examine goals. the amount constitution corresponds, in most cases, to the description of the workshop technical schedule: normal strategies and rising platforms, software program know-how, algorithms and purposes. one of many Workshop recommendations used to be an attempt to increase just a little the scope of the assembly from scientific/engineering computing to enterprise-wide computing. The papers on functionality and scalability of database servers, and Oracle DBMS mirror this try we are hoping that once examining this number of papers the readers could have a good suggestion approximately a few vital learn and technological concerns in excessive functionality computing. we want to supply our due to the NATO clinical and Environmental Affairs department for being the central sponsor for the Workshop. additionally we're happy to recognize different associations and firms that supported the Workshop: ecu Union: ecu fee DGIII-Industry, CNR: nationwide examine Council of Italy, collage of Calabria, Alenia Spazio, Centro Italiano Ricerche Aerospaziali, ENEA: Italian nationwide supplier for brand new expertise, strength and the surroundings, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard-Convex, Hitachi, NEC, Oracle, and Silicon Graphics-Cray study.

Computing with Spatial Trajectories

Spatial trajectories were bringing the unheard of wealth to quite a few study groups. A spatial trajectory documents the trails of numerous relocating items, comparable to those that log their shuttle routes with GPS trajectories. the sector of relocating gadgets similar examine has develop into super energetic in the previous few years, specially with all significant database and information mining meetings and journals.

Looking at the computing power of the individual machines present in the Top500 and the evolution of the total accumulated performance, we plot the performance of the systems at positions 1, 10, 100 and 500 on the list as well as the total accumulated performance. In Fig. 1 the curves of position 100 and 500 show on the average an increase of a factor of two within one year.

Simon§ December 9, 1996 Abstract Since 1993 a list of the top 500 supercomputer sites worldwide has been assembled twice a year and has been made freely available.

Universities receive their support for supercomputers from the NSF or DoD 42 Table 8: Geographical Distribution Region USA/Canada Japan Europe 1995 15 10 0 1996 14 8 3 (Minnesota). However, all the foreign sites are also falling into the same category, and are government institutions in their countries. Most of the supercomputer vendors maintain substantial benchmarking capabilities. These are usually distributed worldwide. Since the vendor centers are geared toward benchmarking and internal software development, we in 1995 decided not to list them in the same list as the Top25 supercomputer centers, which are geared toward research.
