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.

This goal of this research was use advanced computing to investigate a particular method for making stylistic attributions of old master paintings that was developed by Giovanni Morelli in the late nineteenth century. The "Morelli Machine" refers to an algorithmic approach based on analyzing fine details and style of minor items. However, the notion of "style" has been constructed and reconstructed over the century and a half since Morelli began publishing his findings. Instead, we asked what could computers contribute/reveal about a humanistic method that is fully determined, but that is also so clearly aligned with computation. In addition, given the recent interest and success in deep convolution network we wanted to explore what features are present in these networks that have some discriminatory power for distinguishing paintings. We extracted features from a large scale convolutional network (VGG19)
