  • 5/28/20Technology Forum Breakfast: Spinning up a Virtual, World-Class Supercomputer using Cloud Computing In November 2019, SDSC researcher Frank Wuerthwein and his collaborators marshalled the resources of multiple commercial cloud computing providers to assemble a massive virtual supercomputer to solve a real world, multi-messenger astronomy computing problem.  Join us for breakfast and to hear about this achievement and what it portends for the future of supercomputing.  Webinar
  • 6/1/20 - 6/5/202020 Gateway Focus Week Looking to build a sustainability plan for your project or gateway? Planning to write your next funding proposal? Gateway Focus Week helps software and website projects get to the next level. During this 5-day intensive workshop, instructors will help you build a sustainability plan that will bring your software or website project to the next level.

  • 6/18/20Introduction to ExpanseThe goal of this webinar is to provide an overview of Expanse, an upcoming NSF funded HPC resource at SDSC. Expanse will have nearly double the performance compared to the Comet supercomputer. With innovations in cloud integration and composable systems, as well as continued support for science gateways and distributed computing via the Open Science Grid, Expanse will allow researchers to push the boundaries of computing.Webinar
  • 6/22/20 - 8/14/20Summer Research Experience for High School Students (REHS) ProgramThe SDSC REHS program goes beyond the standard REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program, on which it is based, by integrating students into existing multidisciplinary research teams and thereby into the national computational science effort, while still in high school.  The program is designed to encourage students from diverse backgrounds and interests to become the next generation of computational scientists.

  • 7/6/20 - 7/10/20The Open Science (OSG) User School 2020!If you could access hundreds or even thousands of computers for your scholarly work or the work you support, what could you do?  How could it transform research?  What discoveries might be made?  We are seeking applicants for the Open Science Grid (OSG) User School 2020, which takes place July 6-10 at the beautiful University of Wisconsin in Madison. Participants will learn to use high throughput computing (HTC) to harness vast amounts of computing power for research, applicable to nearly any field of study (e.g., physics, chemistry, engineering, life sciences, earth sciences, agricultural and animal sciences, economics, social sciences, medicine, and more).See website for details
  • 7/16/20Indispensable Security: Tips to Use SDSC's HPC Resources SecurelyThis webinar will highlight security-related topics that can improve the trustworthiness of your research. The topics covered include logging in to SDSC's HPC resources, file and directory permissions, and common practices that may create trouble.Webinar
  • 7/16/20Technology Forum Breakfast with AMDJoin us along with Dilip Ramachandran, Sr. Director, Datacenter Ecosystem & Solutions, AMD!AMD’s EPYC™ processors are driving a new era in the datacenter, with exceptional scalability, energy efficiency, memory bandwidth, and I/O capability, making EPYC™ an excellent choice for HPC and AI solutions.  Grab a cup of coffee for an overview of the EPYC™ technology and its selection to power next generation supercomputers, including SDSC’s forthcoming Expanse system.   Webinar
  • 7/26/20 - 7/30/20PEARC20PEARC20 will explore the current practice and experience in advanced research computing including modeling, simulation, and data-intensive computing. This yearʻs theme, “Catch the Wave,” embodies the spirit of the community’s drive to stay on pace and in front of the new waves in technology, analytics, and a globally connected and diverse workforce. Scientific discovery and innovation require a robust, innovative, and resilient cyberinfrastructure to support the critical research required to address world challenges in climate change, population, health, energy, and environment.Virtual Conference
  • 8/3/20 - 8/7/20SDSC's Annual High Performance Computing and Data Science Summer Institute - We're going Virtual!The annual week-long workshop focuses on a broad spectrum of introductory-to-intermediate topics in High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Data Science. The Institute welcomes researchers from academia and industry, especially in domains not traditionally engaged in supercomputing, or who have problems that cannot typically be solved using local computing resources. This year’s Summer Institute continues SDSC’s strategy of bringing HPC to the ”long tail of science”, i.e. providing resources to a larger number of modest-sized computational research projects that represent, in aggregate, a tremendous amount of scientific research and discovery.  This event will be held remotely
  • 10/19/20 - 10/21/20Gateways 2020Gateways are user-friendly interfaces to computing, data, instruments, and other domain-specific resources to support research and education. They may also be known as portals, virtual research environments, eScience, virtual labs, eResearch, digital repositories, or research cyberinfrastructure.  Gateways is now accepting submissions of short papers, demos, panels, tutorials, and workshops on the topic of gateways for science, engineering, or other disciplines.Bethesda, MD
