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.

How to Extend the Productive Lifetime of Scientific Computing Equipment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Every year the scientific computing community decommissions $100Ms of equipment (based on original cost). The reasons for this are varied -- limited machine room space, limited power and cooling, limited IT management staff, new incoming hardware, etc. But often this hardware is still useful scientifically -- and PIs may wish to continue to operate it. In short there is a loss of scientific capability, in addition to shutdown and disposal costs, and the generation of e-waste. Our vision is to create, foster, and share best practices for new pathways that extend the operating lifetime of scientific computing equipment.
