The “SAGE2 10th Annual International SC BOF: Scalable Amplified Group Environment for Global Collaboration” Birds of a Feather (BOF) meeting will be held:

  • Tuesday, November 13
  • 12:15PM - 01:15PM
  • Room: D163, Dallas Convention Center

  • SAGE2 (Scalable Amplified Group Environment) is an open-source, web-based, user-centered platform for local and/or distributed small or large groups of researchers, educators and students to communicate information and ideas as if they were in the same room. Think of it as WebEx or Skype for cyber-enabled, data-intensive science, engineering and education. SAGE2, like its predecessor SAGE (Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment), is the defacto operating system for managing Big Data on tiled walls, providing the scientific community with persistent visualization and collaboration services for global cyberinfrastructure. This year’s BoF will focus on eliciting community input on use cases and cybersecurity enhancements.

    To see SAGE2 demonstrations, visit us at the StarLight research booth on the exhibition floor from Tuesday-Thursday, Booth #2851.

    Together, we can advance scientific research and education by providing production-quality, community-driven, end-user open services for visualization and collaboration that utilize shared national and international cyberinfrastructure.

    See you at SC18!
