SuperCompCloud Workshop at SC19

The SuperCompCloud Steering Committee would like to invite you to the SuperCompCloud workshop hosted in conjunction with SC19 in Denver, CO.

SuperCompCloud: Workshop on Interoperability of Supercomputing and Cloud Technologies

Monday, November 18, 9am to 12:30pm, Room 507, Denver Convention Center

This workshop aims to bring together groups of experts and practitioners from academia, national labs, and industry to discuss technologies, use cases, and best practices in order to set a vision and direction for leveraging high-performance, extreme-scale computing, and on-demand cloud ecosystems.

Topics of interest include tools and technologies enabling scientists to adapt scientific applications for cloud interfaces, interoperability of HPC and cloud resource management and scheduling systems, cloud and HPC storage convergence to allow a high degree of flexibility for users and community platform developers, continuous integration/deployment approaches, reproducibility of scientific workflows in distributed environments, and best practices for enabling “x-as-a-service” models at scale while maintaining a range of security constraints.
