Lev Lafayette, ISC and TERATEC: A Tale of Two Conferences
=========================================================

This year the International Supercomputing Conference and TERATEC were
held in close proximity, the former in Frankfurt from June 17-21 and the
latter in Paris from June 27-28. Whilst the two conferences differ
greatly in scope (one international, one national) and language (one
Anglophone, the other Francophone), the dominance of Linux as the
operating system of choice at both was overwhelming.

This presentation will provide an overview of the two conferences
concentrating on the two items of particular focus. Firstly, the
advances and use of Linux in the field of automated vehicles, which was
prevalent at ISC, and secondly, health care data metrics, which was
prevalent at the second. The presentation will also provide some reasons
for how Linux has come to dominate in the field of research computing,
and what threats and opportunities exist to its use.

Mail Exchange Hotel, 688 Bourke St, Melbourne VIC 3000

Food and drinks will be available on premises.
