Leading Itanium Processor Architects to Keynote Gelato Conference
Posted by Nan Holda, Tuesday March 21 2006 @ 04:54PM EST

The Gelato Federation, http://www.gelato.org , is proud to announce the keynote speakers for the Gelato ICE: Itanium Conference & Expo to be held on April 23-26, 2006 in San Jose, California, USA. Jerry Huck (HP), James Reinders (Intel Corporation), Don Soltis (Intel Corporation), and William Worley (Secure64 and Itanium Solutions Alliance) are scheduled to present on the past, present, and future developments of the Intel® Itanium architecture.

"Itanium architecture provides unmatched capabilities for constructing secure systems and it's time these capabilities were used," commented Dr. William Worley Jr., CTO of Secure64, an Itanium Solutions Alliance member.

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 50+ presentations and the exchange of information in formal and informal settings. The conference will be hosted by the Gelato Federation and sponsored by HP, Intel, and the Itanium Solutions Alliance. An Early Bird discount is in effect until March 25, 2006. Program and registration details are available at http://www.gelato.org/meeting .

"We are very excited about these keynotes, as well as the general presentation line-up. Our speakers include the most knowledgeable architects and software specialists who have worked on Linux on Itanium-based platforms," stated Mark K. Smith, Gelato Managing Director. "These international experts will cover topics as wide-ranging as virtualization, scalability, compilers, and memory management."

Gelato ICE Keynotes

Jerry Huck, HP

Jerry Huck will present trends in computer system design. Huck is an HP Fellow in HP's Business Critical Server unit, which produces HP Integrity servers powered by Itanium processors. Joining HP in 1983, Huck participated in the development of HP's PA-RISC architecture, specializing in floating-point and virtual memory definition. He and his team developed the 64-bit instruction set extensions to PA-RISC in the early 90s. Starting in 1994, Huck led the HP side of the instruction set and platform definition team for the co-developed Intel Itanium architecture.

James Reinders, Intel

James Reinders will discuss current and future Intel software development tools for the Itanium processor. Reinders is a Senior Engineer who joined Intel Corporation in 1989 and has contributed to projects including the world's first TeraFLOP supercomputer (ASCI Red), compilers and architecture work for the iWarp, Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Itanium, and Pentium 4 processors. Reinders is currently the Director of Business Development and Marketing for Intel's Software Development Products.

Don Soltis, Intel

Don Soltis will outline the future Itanium processor hardware features. Don is a Senior Principal Engineer at Intel and has spent the past 10 years on Itanium CPU architecture, design and development. He has 20 years experience in CPU and ASIC design, working on PA-RISC CPUs, I/O, memory and graphics chips.

Dr. William (Bill) Worley Jr., Secure64 and Itanium Solutions Alliance

Bill Worley will present a history of the Itanium processor: its rationale and potential from an HP Labs perspective. Worley is the Co-Founder, Vice President, and CTO of Secure64, a member of the Itanium Solutions Alliance. Prior to founding Secure64, Worley worked for HP as an HP Fellow, Distinguished Contributor, and Chief Scientist. While at HP, Worley was the Technical Director and Principal Architect of both the PA-RISC and PA-Wide Word processor architectures, which are the basis for today's Itanium processor.

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, 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 http://www.itaniumsolutionsalliance.org/events/developer_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. Early Bird pricing ends March 25, so register now.
