The PEARC18 Conference has announced its lineup of Keynote Speakers. The event takes place July 22-27 in Pittsburgh.

PEARC18 is for everyone who works to realize the promise of advanced computing as the enabler of seamless creativity. Scientists and engineers, scholars and planners, artists and makers, students and teachers all depend on the efficiency, security, reliability and sustainability of increasingly complex and powerful digital infrastructure systems. If your work addresses these challenges in any way, PEARC18 is the forum to share, learn and inspire progress.

PEARC18 Keynote Speakers include:

  • Dr. Steve Hammond, Computational Science Director, National Renewable Energy Laboratory will present: Bytes and BTUs: Lessons Learned from the World’s Most Energy Efficient Data Center.
  • Dr. Gregory K. Farber, Director, Office of Technology Development and Coordination National Institute of Mental Health will present: Neuroscience and Advanced Computing.
  • Dr. Ruby Mendenhall, Associate Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will present: Using Advanced Computing to Recover Black Women’s Lost History: Exploring Seamless Creativity in Research that Spans Computer Science, Social Sciences and the Humanities. Watch her 2016 talk from the HPC User Forum.

Dr. Ruby Mendenhall from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will be one of the keynote speakers at PEARC18.

The theme of this year’s conference is Seamless Creativity. It is for scientists and engineers, scholars and planners, artists and makers, students and teachers, all who depend on the efficiency, security, reliability and sustainability of increasingly complex and powerful digital infrastructure systems.

PEARC18 will provide a forum for discussing challenges, opportunities and solutions among directors, managers, computational scientists, end users, students, educators, system administrators, user support staff, as well as industry and government agency representatives from around the world.

PEARC18 will offer tutorials, plenary talks, panels and in-depth technical content that will inform experts in the field while also providing introductions to the tools, technologies and methods of computational science to new users. The conference will feature a dynamic student program and diversity efforts, bringing together researchers, students, and prospective users.
