UMass HPC Day
Organized by the CSCVR
High performance computing (HPC) is becoming evermore necessary in today's simulation-rich research arena. The physical construction and deployment of compute cluters and data centers, and the software development that accompany such platforms is a pressing need in modern research.
The UMass system is a leader in computationally intensive research. This conference will showcase and highlight ongoing state-of-the-art HPC projects that are molding tomorrow's research landscape.
The conference will take place on November 14, 2014 from 9am-6pm at the ATMC, 151 Martine Street, Fall River, MA 02723. The ATMC is located in the South Coast Research and Technology Park.
