The Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC) Conference Series is a community-driven effort built on the successes of the past, with the aim 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 by providing a forum for discussing challenges, opportunities and solutions among the broad range of participants in the research computing community. The PEARC Conferences are organized by a group of dedicated volunteers from the community and are sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society.
PEARC20 will take place in Portland, Oregon from July 26 through July 30, 2020 and 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 all 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. PEARC20 brings together community thought leaders, CI professionals and students to learn, share ideas and craft the infrastructure of the future.
If you are interested in areas of advanced research computing and cyberinfrastructure, this is the conference for you!
