University, government laboratory and industry users of high performance computing (HPC) will gather at the Colorado School of Mines, September 23-24, to discuss HPC education and connecting institutions and users who rely on HPC.
The two-day symposium will include a series of tutorials covering many aspects of HPC use, invited speakers, affinity group breakout sessions, and a student poster competition for member institutions. Winners of the poster competition from each university will win a trip to Supercomputing 2011. Featured speakers include Dr. Henry Neeman from the University of Oklahoma who will discuss computational science and HPC education, and Dr. Kirk Jordan of IBM who will address petascale computing.
Everyone who is interested in high performance computing is welcome. Scientists, researchers, managers, educators, and all users of high performance computing from universities, government laboratories, and industry are especially encouraged to attend.
