Smith, Gelato managing director. "Our speakers include the most proficient architects and software specialists who have worked on Linux on Itanium-based platforms. They will cover subjects as wide-ranging as virtualization, scalability, compilers, and memory management."
Gelato ICE is the world's only conference dedicated specifically to Linux on the Intel Itanium architecture. It will address current high-performance computing issues and collaborative solutions specific to the platform, and will feature presentations and the exchange of information in formal and informal settings. Gelato ICE is targeted for technical users, application and tool developers, system researchers and vendors, and ISVs looking to extend the impact of the platform. The conference is hosted by the Gelato Federation and sponsored by HP, Intel, and the Itanium Solutions Alliance.
New for Gelato ICE 2006
An exhibition area and a program track targeting corporate developers and IT decision makers have been added to Gelato ICE 2006. The expanded technical program will include enterprise-specific topics like enterprise graphics and hardware reliability. In the exhibition area, HP, Intel, Itanium Solutions Alliance, N-VINT, and SGI will be showcasing some of the newest technology solutions.
Also new is integrated technical content to complement the collocated Itanium Solutions Alliance Developer Days to be held on April 26-28. Developer Days are Alliance-organized workshops established to facilitate porting of targeted applications to Itanium platforms. Software developers receive training, technical assistance, and industry-leading tools from Alliance Founding Sponsors and members. Registration for Developer Days is separate from Gelato ICE registration. Details can be found at https://www.itaniumsolutionsalliance.org/events/de veloper_days/.
The week-long combination—Gelato ICE 2006 and the collocated Itanium Solutions Alliance Developer Days—will be the year's highpoint for those wanting to learn more about using and developing Linux on Itanium architecture. Anyone working with this platform—or thinking about working with the platform—should attend. More information is available at http://www.gelato.org/meeting.
