Join the seventh annual High Performance Computing Symposium, Aug. 15 to 17, for two innovative keynote sessions and a wide range of classes and presentations in advanced computing topics.
On Wednesday, Aug. 16, the conference will hold two keynote sessions: a debate on the future of high-performance computing (HPC) architecture, featuring leaders from four major HPC companies, and a live performance of the globally touring NASA-powered data visualization spectacle Bella Gaila.
Sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium (RMACC), the annual symposium is recognized as one of the nation’s leading regional events in the HPC field, bringing together faculty, researchers, industry leaders and students from throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
This year, the technical program features six concurrent tracks covering a wide range of advanced computing topics, with a particular emphasis on data analytics and visualization.
Tutorial sessions feature the acclaimed Supercomputing in Plain English series by Henry Neeman, in addition to classes on python, R and Singularity taught by experts from around the region. Other technical presentations will cover HPC-related resources such as Globus, the Open Science Grid, Amazon EC2 and BRO.
