Catch the wave at PEARC20

PEARC20 (July 26-30; Portland, OR) will bring together community thought leaders, cyberinfrastructure professionals, and students to learn, share ideas, and craft the infrastructure of the future.

This year’s theme, “Catch the Wave,” embodies the spirit of the community’s drive to stay in front of the new waves in technology, analytics, data, visualization, 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.

The PEARC20 student program will provide students with a range of opportunities to participate in both student activities and the full technical program so that they may share their research efforts and gain insights and inspiration from like-minded individuals at the conference.


PEARC20 invites the community to submit papers to EasyChair by January 20, 2020 for the following tracks: Advanced research computing environments - systems and system software; Application software, support, and outcomes; People involved in research computing: workforce development, diversity, and professionalization; and Machine learning and artificial intelligence. See full submission requirements.

Proposal types for PEARC20 include:

  • Birds of a Feather Sessions
  • Co-located Events
  • Lightning Talks
  • Panels
  • Poster Presentations
  • Technical Papers
  • Tutorials
  • Visualization Theater
  • Workshops

Technical tracks

Advanced research computing environments - systems and system software

Practice and experience relating to the system (computing hardware, storage hardware, visualization hardware, and network hardware) and system software that drives the "hardware" side of cyberinfrastructure and research computing environments.

Application software, support, and outcomes

Application software and support from research computing experts enable discoveries. In many cases, application advances and support are somewhat interchangeable – a more intuitive application interface may reduce (or perhaps eliminate) some needs for support. Outcomes – discoveries, new scholarly insights, and new artistic creations - are the reason that we all do what we do.

People enabling research computing - workforce development, diversity, and professionalization

Practice and experience in developing and sustaining advanced research computing as a profession and developing a highly proficient workforce that realizes the full potential of people in all demographic groups.

Trending now - machine learning and artificial intelligence

Practice and experience related to the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence to advance science, engineering, medicine, manufacturing, scholarship, public services, the arts, etc.

PEARC conference series  

ACM SIGHPC sponsors the PEARC conference series starting in 2020. As the world's largest computing society, ACM strengthens the profession's collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. The PEARC conference series provides a forum for discussing challenges, opportunities, and solutions among the broad range of participants in the research computing community. This community-driven effort builds on the successes of the past and aims to grow and be more inclusive by involving additional local, regional, national, and international cyberinfrastructure and research computing partners spanning academia, government and industry. The PEARC conference series is working to integrate and meet the collective interests of our growing community.
