The paper Performance Evaluation of Open Source Seismic Data Processing Packages by Izzatdin A. Aziz, Andrzej M. Goscinski, and Michael M. Hobbs from Deakin University was presented at the 11th International Conference on Algorithms and Architectures for Parallel Processing (ICA3PP 2011).

“The goal in this paper was to demonstrate the capability of open source packages, SU and Madagascar, to execute a sequence of seismic functions representing the actual industrial work process. We succeeded in this by conducting two sets of tasks. First, the investigation of the problem, whether or not open source seismic data processing packages can be executed using the same set of seismic data through data format conversions. Second, whether or not they can achieve reasonable performance and speedup when execute parallel seismic functions on a HPC cluster.”
