In this video from SC17 in Denver, Steve Jones from Stanford University describes the HPC for the Rest of Us program.

“Are you operating a small to medium sized HPC Center? Interested in how others are managing their resources with open source tools and low risk/low overhead hardware? Questions about academic service centers and cost recovery models? Or just want to talk shop with other admins and center managers? This the the session for you! Come visit with Steve and Gowtham, they’re in the trenches with you, always on the lookout for innovative and interest ways of managing resources and sharing their experiences along the way. We’re open to discussing anything HPC for the rest of us!”

Topics of interest include:

  • Managing HPC systems, the ins and outs of small to medium data centers
  • Running an academic service center; cost recovery, staffing, and sustainability.
  • Training; User and staff training; Courses in HPC, what’s working?

HPC for the Rest of Us is organized by:

  • Steve Jones is the Director of the Stanford High Performance Computing Center, a community-based effort, funded through an academic service center cost-recovery model. Jones oversees compute allocations at the National Labs, industry affiliate access to the HPC Center resources, serves on peer review panels, teaches a course on Introduction to High Performance Computing, and serves as co-chair of the Stanford HPC Advisory Council Conference.
  • Dr. Gowtham from Michigan Tech

    Dr. Gowtham serves as the Director of Research Computing at Michigan Technological University overseeing just about every aspect of HPC efforts. As a Research Associate Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, he teaches graduate courses in Scientific Computing. He represents Michigan Tech in Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation, HPC Advisory Council, XSEDE Campus Champion Program and Supercomputing Conference to develop collaborations and partnerships with industry and other academic institutions to discover internship, job and funding opportunities for students and researchers.

You can meet with Steve Jones and Dr. Gowtham at the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference, which takes place Feb 20-21, 2018 in Palo Alto, California.
