Join the Rocky Mountain Advance Computing Consortium (RMACC) for their seventh annual High Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium, taking place Aug. 15 to 17 at CU Boulder's East Campus Research Park.

The symposium is recognized as one of the nation's leading regional events in the ever-growing HPC field. It brings together faculty, researchers, industry leaders and students from across the Rocky Mountain region. Special beginner-level tutorials and workshops are included for those new to the field and for students who wish to learn how to use a variety of advanced computing skills in their research.

This year's event will highlight two moderated debates featuring HPC industry, national labs and educational leaders. The first keynote will explore the future of HPC architecture, and the second will feature a live performance of the globally touring NASA-powered data visualization spectacle, Bella Gaila, presented by the film's director and composer Kenji Williams, who is a CU Boulder alumnus. 

General admission for the two-day conference is $150, which includes all conference materials and meals, plus a reception. The student registration fee is $30, and post-doctoral students can sign up for $75 thanks to support from the many event sponsors. For those only able to attend the Aug. 17 tutorials, registration will be $100.
