PEARC20 has ended
Welcome to PEARC20!
PEARC20’s theme is “Catch the Wave.” This year’s theme 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. We look forward to this year’s PEARC20 virtual meeting, where we can share scientific discovery and craft the future infrastructure.

The conference will be held in Pacific Time (PT) and the times listed below are in Pacific Time.

The connection information for all PEARC20 workshops, tutorials, plenaries, track presentations, BOFs, Posters, Visualization Showcase, and other affiliated events, are in the PEARC20 virtual conference platform, Brella. If you have issues joining Brella, please email pearcinfo@googlegroups.com.

PEARC20 Panel: Introduction of the new NSF Innovative HPC systemsContinuing to provide a comprehensive portfolio of innovative advanced computing resources to meet the evolving needs of the nation’s science and engineering communities, NSF announced in May the latest round of awards for five new systems to be deployed and in production during 2020 – 2021. These systems will be available to U.S. researchers via XSEDE’s resource allocations process.
These new systems are results of the NSF solicitation 19-587 for “Advanced Computing Systems & Services: Adapting to the Rapid Evolution of Science and Engineering Research”, featuring two tracks:
  • Category I, Capacity Systems: production computational resources maximizing the capacity provided to support the broad range of computation and data analytics needs in S&E research; and
  • Category II, Innovative Prototypes/Testbeds: innovative forward-looking capabilities deploying novel technologies, architectures, usage modes, etc., and exploring new target applications, methods, and paradigms for S&E discoveries.
This session features presentations from the announced awardees of this NSF solicitation, i.e., three Category I systems and two Category II systems as follows:

  • Anvil: Category I: A National Composable Advanced Computational Resource for the Future of Science and Engineering, Carol Song, RCAC, Purdue University
  • Delta: Category I: Crossing the Divide Between Today's Practice and Tomorrow's Science, Bill Gropp, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, UIUC
  • Jetstream2: Category I: Accelerating Science and Engineering on Demand, David Y. Hancock, Indiana University Pervasive Technology Institute
  • Neocortex: Category II: Unlocking Interactive AI Development for Rapidly Evolving Research, Paola Buitrago, Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • Voyager: Category II: Exploring AI Processors in Science and Engineering, Amit Majumdar, San Diego Supercomputer Center
