Supercomputing systems present complex challenges to personnel who design, deploy and maintain these systems. Standing up these systems and keeping them running require novel solutions that are unique to high performance computing. The success of any supercomputing center depends on stable and reliable systems, and HPC Systems Professionals are crucial to that success.
The Eighth Annual HPC Systems Professionals Workshop will bring together systems administrators, systems architects, and systems analysts in order to share best practices, discuss cutting-edge technologies, and advance the state-of-the-practice for HPC systems. This CFP requests that participants submit either papers, slide presentations, or 5-minute Lightning Talk proposals. Additionally reproducible artifacts (code segments, test suites, configuration management templates) which can be made available to the community for use are welcome for submissions either as a standalone submission or in addition to any paper or talk submissions.
Call for Participation
NOTE: Our workshop this year is scheduled for Sunday, November 12, 2023. Please plan your travel accordingly so you can join us!
