Workshops Focus: An Impressive Line-up for SC18

Once again, the HPC community responded strongly to our call for insightful and engaging content for workshops. As a reminder or for those who are new, workshops provide a focused, in-depth venue for HPC presentations, discussions, interactions, and hands-on activities. Many workshops run “mini-conferences” on a specific theme. Workshop proposals are peer-reviewed and selected with

Invited Talk Profile: “What Is the Role of Architecture and Software Researchers in Making Quantum Computing Practical?” from Margaret Martonosi

Presenter: Margaret Martonosi from Princeton University Focus: Quantum Computing Time: Tuesday, November 13th, 3:30pm – 4:15pm Location: Exhibit Hall B Abstract: In the past 3-5 years, Quantum Computing (QC) has reached an interesting and important inflection point. For decades, quantum computing research was comprised of very abstract mathematical algorithms development “up high” that demonstrated some

Final Reminder: INDIS Workshop Deadline is September 7

Paper submissions for the 5th annual INDIS Workshop are due on Friday, September 7! The SCinet experimental networks team invites original papers for the 5th annual Innovating the Network for Data-Intensive Science (INDIS) workshop. INDIS is an academic forum for researchers and engineers to share information systems infrastructure developments that are essential to the scientific

SC18: A Family-Friendly Conference

Inclusivity is an important priority at all SC conferences.  From welcoming new attendees to assisting new graduates get ahead in their careers, there is simply nothing more important than helping everyone feel welcome and a part of the HPC community. Our SC families are no exception to this rule.  Over the past few years, SC has partnered with KiddieCorp

Throwback Thursday with SC18 General Chair Ralph McEldowney
