Call for Participants: Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC17)
PEARC17 Call for Participation seeks contributions from advanced research computing community.
Managers, system administrators, user support staff, computational scientists, students, and educators are invited to contribute to discussions on the operation and use of campus and national advanced research computing centers at the 2017 Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing conference (PEARC17), which will be held in New Orleans, July 9–13, 2017.
PEARC17 Call for Participation can be viewed here.
With the backing of more than a dozen community organizations, PEARC17 provides a forum for community-wide discussions of research computing’s challenges, opportunities, and solutions.
Submissions aligned with the conference theme of Sustainability, Success, and Impact are particularly encouraged. The theme reflects key objectives for the advanced research computing community – sustainability of the infrastructure environment, measuring and ensuring success for organizations that provide and use advanced research computing, and impact of these technologies on the workforce on science, and on scholarship.
PEARC17 seeks full papers or extended abstracts in each of four technical tracks. Other participation opportunities include tutorials, posters, a Visualization Showcase, Birds of a Feather sessions, and a student program. Student poster and paper submissions are welcome. All submissions should emphasize results and lessons derived from support of or use of advanced research computing on campuses or provided for the academic and open science communities.
The first submission deadline is March 6 for technical papers and tutorials. For more information about PEARC17 and the detailed Call for Participation see http://www.pearc.org/. Submission-related questions should be directed to email@example.com.
