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.

CANCELED SESSION - Democratizing/Demystifying AdvancedCyberinfrastructure for Deep Learning

To harness deep learning's true potentials in research it is necessary to train our cyberinfrastructure community in making the most out of the resources made available through federally funded initiatives. The necessary training includes gaining the skills to (1)~characterize scientific use cases suitable for deep learning (DL), (2)~characterize and compare different hardware solutions or platforms in the light of DL requirements, and (3)~optimally deploy a deep learning solution for a scientific use case in a suitable large scale hardware platform for enhanced productivity. To our knowledge, there are many related educational offerings, but not one that focuses on the relation of performance to hardware architecture, measuring performance, selecting architectures, maximizing performance, and scaling deep learning from an user perspective accessible to researchers with varying levels of hardware expertise. We propose the three-hour hands-on tutorial \textit{Democratizing/Demystifying Advanced Cyberinfrastructure for Deep Learning} to bridge this important gap.
