PEARC18: July 22-26, 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA

SGCI will be offering a Hackathon for undergraduate and graduate students co-located with PEARC18! Learn more:

PEARC18 is for everyone who works to realize the promise of advanced computing as the enabler of seamless creativity, the theme of this year's conference. Scientists and engineers, scholars and planners, artists and makers, students and teachers all depend on the efficiency, security, reliability, and sustainability of increasingly complex and powerful digital infrastructure systems. If your work addresses these challenges in any way, PEARC18 is the forum to share, learn and inspire progress.

The following parallel tracks will be offered:

  • Facilitation of Advanced Computing Infrastructure

  • Applications of Advanced Computing Infrastructure 

  • Visualization and Data Analytics

  • Workforce Development and Diversity
