Inaugural HPC User Symposium

LSU Information Technology Services and the LSU Center for Computation and Technology are pleased to announce the inaugural High Performance Computing (HPC) User Symposium from 6pm on June 6'th through 5pm on June 7'th. The Symposium will consists of a series of invited talks 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. Campus researchers will be invited to give general interest talks on their involvement with HPC research. In addition, a few graduate and undergraduate students will be selected to present a short, 15-30 minutes talks on their work.
