During a seismic survey, each shot sends a wave propagating through the Earth, while receivers on the surface listen for reflections as that wave bounces off of geologic layers. Real-world geology can be extremely complex, and because of the different wave propagation velocities the of the different layers, the wave never expands in simple circles, like ripples in a pond. Instead it is scattered off of high-velocity contrasts, refracts around slower regions, is focused into beams.

Just back from my third SC conference, SC09, in Portland where I was able to confirm Doug's observation that the word 'Supercomputing' no longer figures on any of the signs, banners and conference material. It's like when Kentucky Fried Chicken went to KFC, but I'm still trying to figure out what what's so bad about the words 'super' or 'computing'. Regardless, two words that were anything but denigrated at the show were 'cloud' and 'GPU', which I'd argue were the two most prevalent themes of this year's show.

Followers of the HPC world may have noticed the announcement this week that our fellow Parallel Computing company (and fellow Canucks BTW) RapidMind was purchased by Intel. Of course this generated a flurry of calls into the Acceleware World Headquarters :-) by colleagues, partners and of course investors asking what does this mean for Acceleware?

I had the opportunity to visit DAC 2009 this year in San Francisco. DAC is an EDA conference which showcases tools and processes that perform simulation, logic synthesis, design verification, and timing analysis. The work we do in linear algebra has direct applicability in this space, and we are eager to expand our reach in the EDA market. The show itself was well attended and there were approximately 200 exhibitors. It was great to catch up with our customers and reach out to some new ones.

IMS/MTT 2009 in Boston was an extremely successful show for Acceleware.

For our fourth consecutive year, Acceleware will be exhibiting at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) held in Boston from June 9th through June 11th. I’m excited to see many familiar faces and to meet many new ones. We will be showcasing our products including our accelerated FDTD software, clustered solutions, and our linear algebra solvers.
