	   Emerging Technologies Track at ACM/IEEE SC 2014
		    New Orleans Convention Center
			   New Orleans, LA
			 November 16-21, 2014

		  Submission Deadline: 31 July 2014


In the Emerging Technologies Track of the Technical Program, SC14 will
provide a showcase for high-risk, high-reward hardware and software
technologies that may significantly change the world of HPC in the
next ten years. For example, technologies like reconfigurable
computing, new SoC designs, alternative programming systems, and novel
cooling techniques may offer near-term benefits, while new device
technologies, like carbon nanotubes, non-volatile memory, quantum
computing, and chip-level optical interconnects offer potentially
paradigm-changing benefits over the long- term.

The SC14 Emerging Technologies Committee will select these
technologies from submissions, based on a peer-review process with a
single round of reviews.  Successful projects will advocate future
technologies with the potential to influence computing and society as
a whole. Winners will receive free exhibit floor space in a high
visibility location; this location will allow attendees the
opportunity to witness technology demonstrations, see presentations,
and hold in-depth technical discussions.

We invite submissions from industry, academia, and government
researchers for this Emerging Technologies Exhibit
Showcase. Submissions will be evaluated on several criteria including
potential impact on performance, productivity, power, reliability,
cost of HPC systems, and novelty.  Submissions with exceptional merit
may be offered the opportunity to present their work at an Emerging
Technology Theatre on the exhibit floor. Submissions are accepted
through the submission website (listed below). Each submission should
describe the project scope in detail and provide references to
external resources (newspaper articles, existing installations,
webpages etc.).




* Submission deadline:          July 31, 2014
* Notification of acceptance:   August 31, 2014


Submissions are accepted at the submission website as single PDF of your 
proposal with a maximum of 4 pages including all important elements as 

1.	Project description including figures, photos, references.

2.	Project relevance to, and potential impact on SC.

3.	Facility requirements. Each project needs to describe how much space it 
	would require and how it would use the space provided. Please include 
	your plan and requirements for displays, posters, A/V equipment, 
	standing displays, additional security requirements, and additional 
	equipment requirements, such as exceptional power or networking 

4.	Staffing. Would the project be able to have somebody in the booth, 
	perhaps part time?

5.	Presentation. Would you be willing to give a talk in the theatre or 
	participate in a panel describing your project?

6.	Miscellaneous. Everything that is important to add and does not fit in 
	the other categories.

Additional materials, such as prototype photos are encouraged.
