Modern science is increasingly dependent on computational methods and resources. This observation is clearly supported by noting the growth in the number of users and the amount of installed infrastructure at the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center. While the infrastructure is impressive, it is really all about the research.

On Tuesday May 17th, the Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research at UMass Dartmouth is hosting a second HPC Day conference from 9am-6pm at the Woodland Commons building. This conference will showcase compute intensive research of faculty from UMass and the other member Universities of the MGHPCC.

The inaugural HPC Day was a UMass only event hosted by the CSCVR in November 2014. It exceeded the planners’ expectations with over 100 attendees and over 30 student poster presentations. It also generated interest across the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center consortium community so this year, the conference has been expanded to include all MGHPCC universities.

Students are especially welcome at the conference and are encouraged to present a poster. We will once again have a student poster competition, judged by the speakers, with separate undergraduate and graduate categories if necessary. Prizes for the student poster competition have been generously donated by SIAM, MathWorks, and NVIDIA. The keynote speaker this year will be Jeremy Kepner (MIT LLSC) on Interactive Supercomputing for High Performance Data Analysis.

It is a great opportunity to learn and to network. For more information and to register, please visit the conference website at http://cscvr1.umassd.edu/events/201605-umass-hpc/index.html.
