The Symposium’s technical program features six concurrent tracks covering a wide range of advanced computing topics, with a particular emphasis on data analytics and visualization.  Tutorial sessions feature the acclaimed "Supercomputing in Plain English" series by Henry Neeman, in addition to classes on python, R, and Singularity taught by experts from around the region.  Other technical presentations will cover HPC-related resources such as Globus, the Open Science Grid, Amazon EC2, and BRO.

 The annual symposium– recognized as one of the nation’s leading regional events in the HPC field – brings together faculty, researchers, industry leaders and students from throughout the Rocky Mountain Region. Special beginner level tutorials and workshops are included for those new to the HPC field.
