PEARC17 welcomes all who care about the challenges in using and operating advanced research computing.
Organizations supporting this new conference include the Advancing Research Computing on Campuses: Best Practices Workshop (ARCC), XSEDE, the Science Gateways Community Institute, the Campus Research Computing (CaRC) Consortium, the ACI-REF consortium, the Blue Waters project, ESnet, Open Science Grid, Compute Canada, the EGI Foundation, the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC), and Internet2. Reflecting this community-wide interest and support, PEARC17 not only plans to continue the successful five-year XSEDE conference series but aims to grow and include additional campus, national, and international cyberinfrastructure and research computing partners. This is continuing with the co-location of the fourth Advancing Research Computing on Campuses (ARCC) best practices workshop. As a combined and newly independent conference, PEARC17 is working to integrate and meet the collective interests of our growing communities.
The theme of this year’s conference is Sustainability, Success and Impact—particularly apropos as we strive to succeed in making the conference itself a self-sustaining event with continued impact. The theme also reflects key objectives for those managing, developing, and using advanced research computing throughout the nation and the world—sustainability of the infrastructure environment, measuring and ensuring success for those organizations providing and using advanced research computing, and impact of the technologies on the workforce and on science and scholarship.
