3nd Annual HPC User Symposium

LSU Information Technology Services, LSU Center for Computation & Technology and Louisiana Optical Network Initiative (LONI) are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual High Performance Computing (HPC) User Symposium from 6pm on June 4'th through 5pm on June 5'th. The Symposium will consists of a series of invited talks, student/postdoc presentation and a poster session discussing research using HPC systems. The symposium is open to all, with the hope of engendering cross-discipline communication and exchange of methods and experiences.

This is an opportunity for the user community to come together and share experiences and methods. Anyone interested in HPC is more than welcome to come by and find out how HPC systems are utilized in research at LONI member institutions. We will be changing the format of talks starting this year. There will be four sessions each with one plenary talk followed by 4-5 short talk presented by student and postdocs. Students (graduate and undergraduate) and postdocs are encouraged to submit an abstract for poster or contributed talk.
