Details set for Advanced Research Computing on Campuses Workshop at PEARC17

Details set for Advanced Research Computing on Campuses Workshop at PEARC17

The Advanced Research Computing on Campuses (ARCC) workshop is co-locating with PEARC17 this July in New Orleans with the aim of beginning to more broadly integrate with the ongoing PEARC annual conference. ARCC will present a full-day tutorial, a series of lightning talks, and Birds of a Feather sessions. Plenaries, breaks, meals, and other activities will be shared with PEARC17 attendees.

An ARCC-hosted tutorial, “Enabling and Advancing Research Computing on Campuses” will be on Monday, July 10, and will provide a broad overview of research computing on campuses including evolving trends in cyberinfrastructure, computing, and people resources on campuses. Other ARCC sessions are scheduled for July 11 and 12. ARCC sessions are open to all PEARC17 attendees.

As part of the community organizations that are supporting the PEARC17 conference, ACI-REF and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) are co-locating the 2017 ARCC best practices workshop with PEARC17. Last year's 2016 ARCC workshop drew more than 100 attendees from universities across the country.

"On behalf of the members of the ACI-REF consortium, we strongly support this effort to bring the broader cyberinfrastructure community together under one roof for an exchange of ideas and new discovery," said Gwen Jacobs, PhD,  Director of Cyberinfrastructure, University of Hawaii. "In ACI-REF we have seen the benefit first hand of the gains made when groups come together to exchange expertise and learn from each other.  Co-locating our ARCC meeting with PEARC17 will broaden the scope and impact of the meeting for all participants. We're excited to be part of this community effort."
