NCSA is now accepting team applications for the Blue Waters Petascale Computing Hackathon. The event will take place September 9-13, 2019 at NCSA.

The Hackathon will pair research teams with expert mentors with the goal to enable scientific codes to take full advantage of HPC systems. The research groups selected to participate will send teams of at least two developers along with a working application that has the potential to benefit from the petascale-class computing systems to accelerate their research productivity. The end goal is to have applications running efficiently at scale, or with a clear roadmap for enhancing code performance.

The hackathon is intended for research and development teams wanting to:

  • Adapt their codes to run on petascale-class systems equipped with CPUs and/or GPUs
  • Optimize applications that already run on petascale computing systems
  • Accelerate machine learning and deep learning applications
  • Implement other innovative uses of petascale computing systems

Applications are due July 8, 2019.
