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.

Research Computing Infrastructure and Researcher Engagement: Notes from Neuroscience

The advent of the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute (Zuckerman Institute) at Columbia University over a decade ago presented the opportunity to design a discipline-focused Research Computing (RC) group allowing for close collaboration with a relatively fixed number of neuroscience laboratories to enhance discovery. Experiences and observations related to tailoring Zuckerman computing infrastructure, creating "task-based" services and systems, and engaging with researchers in our Institute are shared to inform others about establishing discipline-focused research computing teams. Case studies related to providing a GPU cluster service tailored to Institute needs and the evolution of infrastructure choices to hybrid designs allowing bursting to vendor-provided cloud services are reviewed. Future directions involving research software engineering and sharing whole data analysis pipelines are noted.
