Print Friendly, PDF & Email

EOFS chairman Frank Baetke writes that he has left HPE. As the long-time liason to the HP-CAST user community, Mr. Baetke played a key role in bringing together HPC thought leaders at worldwide events for many years.

The good news is that Frank will continue to be active in HPC.

He writes:

I will also remain active as EOFS Chairman representing HPE as a delegate as membership is by corporation or institution. In that role I will be planning again for Birds of a Feather Sessions (BoFs) at the upcoming ISC’18 in June – the success we had at SC17 with two very well-attended BoFs is really encouraging.

Let me also remind you on the upcoming LUSTRE User Group Conference LUG 2018 organized by OpenSFS. The conference will be held April 23-26, 2018 at Argonne National Laboratory in Argonne, Illinois. Registration is now open.

I’m sure I’ll meet most of you at the upcoming ISC’18 event in Frankfurt in June, 24-28, see
