IEEE/ACM SC15 Aggregate.Org

This is the home page for our 23rd major research exhibit at the IEEE/ACM Supercomputing conference. The exhibit is now under the slightly changed title University of Kentucky / Aggregate.Org, but it is still really run by our informal research consortium led by our KAOS (Compilers, Hardware Architectures, and Operating Systems) group here at the University of Kentucky's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering -- hopefully, for the last time. The Center for Computational Sciences is displaying various things in the exhibit this year, and is expected to take the lead for future exhibits. We are booth #3830, a 10x20 booth; the exhibit hall essentially has two wings, and we are located about 1/3 of the way up in the right wing (Hall 2 in this map).

Our 23rd Exhibit

As usual, our research exhibit this year will be showing a lot of different things we have developed or are developing... ranging from supercomputer architecture to 3D printing technology and a new model for imaging sensors.


We kept handouts to just four topics:

Here's what our booth looks like this year:

and here's a time-lapse of the entire show:

3D Printer

3D printing plays a major role in the computational photography work we are doing (for 3D printing custom camera parts), and 3D printing is cool, but we didn't want to risk bringing our MakerGear M2 as airline checked baggage. Thus, we bought and brought a $400 Wanhao I3. Really quite a nice machine... more finished than the M2, and capable of comprable print quality, but at much slower print speeds.


Are website updates ever done?

The Aggregate. The only thing set in stone is our name.
