The SC2000 Exhibition has ended, but most of the webcasts live on, at least for the next month or so. More exhibition floor webcasts will be added in the coming weeks. The archived presentations are being hosted by the San Diego Supercomputer Center. We hope you enjoy them.


Now featuring eleven presentations, with more presentations from the SC2000 Exhibition Floor on the way.


Viewing the SC2000 Webcasts requires the free RealPlayer software from Real Networks. We also have more detailed instructions and sample clips.


In an effort to help solve any problems our remote viewers may encounter we are providing a webcast help desk. User support will be available by telephone and email shortly before, during, and shortly after all webcast events. Please visit the webcast pages for contact information.

All webcast viewers are encouraged to provide feedback on the quality and scope of the broadcasts. Tell us what you found useful, what you would like to see in the future, and how effective you found the webcasts.
