Due to the impact of COVID-19 many events have been cancelled, postponed or will be offered remotely. Please review each event page for an update.

  • 4/1/20An Introduction to the Virus Outbreak Data Network (VODAN) and Related Developments with EURETOSPlease join us in our upcoming webinar series, "An Introduction to the Virus Outbreak Data Network (VODAN) and Related Developments with EURETOS". This is the first in a series of 4, it will cover a summary of the Virus Outbreak Data Network (VODAN) and its aims, as well as a description of activities underway; and, an introduction to the EURETOS AI platform. VODAN is a GO FAIR Implementation network setup to help fight COVID-19, and set foundations for future virus-based health crises.This is a webinar event
  • 4/16/20Running Jupyter Notebooks on CometJupyter Notebooks are interactive web tools known as a computational notebooks, in which researchers can combine software, text, multimedia resources, and computational output. Notebooks can be launched locally and access local file systems, or remotely to provide access to a user’s files on the remote system. In this webinar, we will present SDSC’s multitiered approach to running notebooks more securely: running notebooks in the usual way using the insecure HTTP connections; hosting a JupyterHub server using HTTPS and Jupyter Lab; and the new Reverse Proxy Service (RPS). This webinar will use the Zoom conferencing system. You should receive an email with connection details a few days prior to the event.This is a webinar event
  • 5/10/20Technology Forum Breakfast: Spinning up a Virtual, World-Class Supercomputer using Cloud Computing [May 10 is a system date to retain on calendar.  This event will be rescheduled.] 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.  To be rescheduled - see event for details
  • 5/10/20Technology Forum Breakfast with AMD[May 10 is a system date to retain on calendar.  This event will be rescheduled.] Join us for Breakfast 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. Attend this breakfast for an overview of the EPYC™ technology and its selection to power next generation supercomputers, including SDSC’s forthcoming Expanse system.   To be rescheduled - see event for details
  • 5/10/20TSCC User Group Meeting[May 10 is a system date to retain on the calendar.  This event will be rescheduled.] Join us at the TSCC User Group meeting, where we will highlight some research being conducted on the system, discuss the current status and recent upgrades to the Triton Shared Computing Cluster (TSCC),  introduce our user community to the recently funded NSF CC* Stratus system, and discuss transition plans to the new system and upgrade paths for older systems. We will conclude with a user discussion session.To be rescheduled - see event for details
  • 5/11/20 - 5/15/20GPU Hackathon co-hosted with NVIDIAJoin SDSC, NVIDIA, NERSC and ORNL for a week of hacking!  The GPU Hackathon is designed to help scientists, researchers and developers accelerate and optimize their applications on GPUs. Domain scientists are paired with experienced GPU mentors to learn the critical accelerated and parallel computing skills needed by the scientific community. This event will be held remotely
  • 6/22/20 - 8/14/20Summer Research Experience for High School Students (REHS) ProgramAPPLY: Applications period 2/15 - 3/15!  The 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. SDSC
  • 7/6/20 - 7/10/20The Open Science (OSG) User School 2020!APPLY NOW: March 1 - 31.  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).University of Wisconsin–Madison
  • 7/26/20 - 7/30/20PEARC20: Call for Participation CfP Extended - see site for due dates!  PEARC20 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.Portland, OR
  • 8/3/20 - 8/7/20SDSC's Annual High Performance Computing and Data Science Summer InstituteApplication deadline: May 3!  This 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.  SDSC Auditorium
