On May 25, UMass Dartmouth will be hosting “HPC Day 2017”  — a conference to showcase computationally intensive research by scientists from all over Massachusetts.   The conference is being organized by the UMass Dartmouth Center for Scientific Computing & Visualization Research (CSCVR), and will feature speakers from the National Science Foundation, UMass, MIT, WPI, Northeastern, Harvard, and Boston University.

Today, virtually every important breakthrough in science depends on computing resources, which have become the “third leg” of scientific discovery along with theory and experimentation.

Scientists from across Massachusetts will join together on May 25th, 2017 to celebrate and showcase the power of high performance computing across the sciences.

Keynote speakers:
Luke Kelley (Harvard)
Sushil Prasad (NSF)

Confirmed speakers include:
Ofer Cohen (UMass Lowell)
Samuel Isaacson (BU)
Markos Katsoulakis (UMass Amherst)
Arghavan Louhghalam (UMass Dartmouth)
Ryan McKinnon (MIT)
Randy Paffenroth (WPI)
Davesh Tiwari (Northeastern)
Marinos Vouvakis (UMass Amherst)
Paul Whitford (Northeastern)

The conference will feature a special poster session with awards for students and an HPC education session.

Organizing committee: Kavitha Chandra (UMassL), Qian-Yong Chen (UMassA), Min Hyung Cho (UMassL), Sigal Gottlieb (UMassD), Sam Isaacson (BU), David Kaeli (Northeastern), Gaurav Khanna (UMassD), Misha Kilmer (Tufts), Julia Mullen (Lincoln Lab), Eric Polizzi (UMassA), Homer Walker (WPI), Ralph Zottola (UMassPO).
