RMACC High Performance Computing Symposium

From Daniel Jorgensen, IEEE: 

On behalf of Dr. Thomas Hauser, Director of Research Computing at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and the executive committee of the Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium, I am pleased to invite IEEE student chapters to participate in the 4th Annual High Performance Computing Symposium.

This year’s event, set for Aug. 12-13 at the Wolf Law Building on the University of Colorado main campus, is an outgrowth of past symposiums sponsored by the Front Range Consortium for Research Computing.  The expanded Consortium now includes academic and research institutions from Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Montana, Utah and Idaho.  Featured speakers will be Irene Qualters, Acting Director of the Division of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (CISE/ACI) at the National Science Foundation, and Raj Hazra, Vice President and General Manager of High Performance Computing at Intel.

For students, this is an outstanding opportunity to meet and interact with academic, research and industry leaders in the high performance computing field.  Student research also will be featured at the symposium, and the second day of the event will be devoted to career opportunities, workshops, forums and networking to benefit you both in the classroom and in the industry.  

We also encourage your suggestions or proposals for small group sessions, and your recommendations for presenters and panelists at those sessions.  We want to make this symposium as worthwhile an experience as possible for student participants.   Student registration will be just $35, which includes all conference materials, noon meals and two evening receptions.
